Not being perfect (all over the place) - Impossible goal to inspire shame in the people, look to authority for guidance
A teacher being called a rabbi (Mt23:8) - Distaining religious competition (the bad guys)
Not believing (Rec 21:8) - Fiating its own rightness into existance for no reason
Wives not submitting to their husbands (Eph 5:22) - Continuation of oppression (you can argue morals, but it's no more arguable than the morality of slavery - they did it because they could and they liked the power)
I could go on, there are hundreds more, but I'm getting bored...
