I’ve witnessed those who have allot of zeal in attempting to serve the Lord, yet people who attack others in their faith (aside from addressing sin) is unmerited and abusive, often from a deep seated and self righteous pride, which is obviously not detected from those who practice such pettiness…
Romans 2: 1-4 speaks of how the Lord views such people.
1 Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.
2 But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things.
3 And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?
4 Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?

39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.

Notice that he is talking to those who were only reading moses and the prophets when he said that.
John 5: 39-40 (Legalistic) The same principle applies nowadays to a hardened heart; but you are of course correct in your timeline.
