2020 – WEDNESDAY 17 JUNE
THE STUPIDITY OF SIN
For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
And deep darkness the people;
I have never shaken my head as much as I have in recent times – at the moronic stupidity of this enlightened generation.
SIN = SELF INTEREST NOW
Sin comes from the root of pride.
No matter whether you are a victor or a victim – it is your pride that causes you to sin.
PRIDE HAS THREE ELEMENTS
the act of being exalted – at the expense of others.
the expansion of power, wealth, rank, or honour – at the expense of others.
the act of protestation – using deceit and/or force to defend, or demand your right, to a higher state of life – at the expense of others.
PRIDE ALWAYS LEADS TO DIVISION & DISCORD
Whether it is about black or white – male or female – rich or poor – my religion or your religion – pride and prejudice always lead to a greater divide.
PRIDE CAN ONLY BE BROKEN THROUGH HUMILITY.
You cannot have one group of people being forced to bow the knee to another group.
Both must bow together in humility and forgiveness – to see a work of grace.
STUPIDITY IS BELIEVING THAT PRIDE AND SIN CAN PROSPER
