Pride leads to every other vise....

Monday, June 24, 2013

"Pride leads to every other vise":

"According to Christian teachers, the essential vice, the utmost evil, is Pride. Unchastity, anger, greed, drunkenness, and all that, are mere fleabites in comparison: it was through Pride that the devil became the devil: Pride leads to every other vice: it is the complete anti-God state of mind." ~ C.S. Lewis

I could literally write a book on this thought...

So many verses in the Bible that speak against PRIDE, making it "painfully obvious" that God hates PRIDE!

God said:

"The fear of the LORD is hatred of evil. Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate." Proverbs 8:13

"When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom." Proverbs 11:2

"Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall." Proverbs 16:18

"One’s pride will bring him low, but he who is lowly in spirit will obtain honor." Proverbs 29:23

Matthew 23:12 For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.
