The last time I checked

humans are not perfect.  Not even close to perfection.  I'm really struggling with people who think they are perfect or demand perfection.   It will never happen on earth folks.

Bible Verses about Perfection

And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Let those of us who are mature think this way, and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal that also to you.
For we all stumble in many ways. And if anyone does not stumble in what he says, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle his whole body.
But whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in him:
We know that everyone who has been born of God does not keep on sinning, but he who was born of God protects him, and the evil one does not touch him.
No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.
For we are glad when we are weak and you are strong. Your restoration is what we pray for.
I have seen a limit to all perfection, but your commandment is exceedingly broad.
