Can we condemn Pilate (… in all honesty)?

It is easy to condemn Pilate and overlook our own equally devious behaviour.  Anxious to avoid the pain of a whole-hearted commitment to Christ, we too search for convenient subterfuges.  We either leave the decision to somebody else, or opt out for a half-hearted compromise, or seek to honour Jesus for the wrong reason (e.g. as teacher instead of as Lord), or even make a public affirmation of loyalty while at the same time denying hi in our hearts.

(John Stott, The Cross of Christ)
