Those who have a compulsion to preach are only trying to convince themselves.

We look at actions and try to decide whether they are good or bad never for a moment questioning the underlying forces that propel us to act in the first place. Like an iceberg what is visible is only a fraction of what is hidden. We could never say we know ourselves leave alone others.

It is best therefore not to judge and I would rephrase my earlier statement to say:-

Those who preach to covert others may only be trying to convince themselves at best or to serve their own self interest.
