A Voice from the Past - Gregory the Great

For those that are at variance are to be admonished to know most certainly that, in whatever virtues they may abound, they can by no means become spiritual if they neglect becoming united to their neighbours by concord.

Gregory the Great, 540-604 BC, Pastoral Rule Part III, Chapter XXII (The Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, Second Series, Volume XII, Philip Schaff and Henry Wace, translated by Rev. James Barmby, T & T Clarke and Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1997, p.48) 

Can we feel we are so right with God we do not need to get along with others? How do we avoid this?
