No, it was the ones who (of course) were sinners, but thought they WEREN'T, who were the problem.

Yes. Exactly. But my point was, "Jesus was a friend of sinners" doesn't only mean he sat at the table with the worst of them. We are all sinners and He laid down His life for all of us. That's the point. It doesn't mean Christians should seek out the worst sinners and pal around with them so they can supposedly be more Christlike. We are corruptible. Christ wasn't. Preach the gospel to all sinners. But bad company still corrupts good morals, and Christians had better remain mindful of that. We don't have to hang out in bars (or at porn conventions) to find sinners who need salvation. Find a human, cuz they're all sinners.
