Based on Pastor Alejandro Bullon’s message at the Spanish Florida Campmeeting 2012.
When looking at other people, we will often point out… hmm that person is a thief or a murderer. This is how we scale evil and wrong in society. It is all by actions that we can point out wrongs.
Now if someone is full of pride we say… Oh they are just a bit prideful or stuck up, but its okay. For some reason, pride is something that is passble in small doses-yet God does not see pride as something insignificant. In fact, it seems that pride is the father of all sins.
God can never accept sin. Why? Because He cannot accept anything that destroys us because He loves us.
“But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” James 4:6
“A proud man is always looking down on things and people; and, of course, as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above you.” C.S. Lewis, Mere Cristianity
