Who is today's Pharisee?

From the December 1989 issue of The Christian Science Journal

" Well , I certainly hope [name withheld to protect the innocent] is reading the Bible Lesson As found in the Christian Science Quarterly today," I said to my husband one Monday morning. Christ Jesus' parable about the Pharisee and the publican (see Luke 18:9-14) seemed just the right rebuke to a church member who considered herself an authority on everything that concerned our branch church.
