Had a thought today as I saw an advertisement for my home town’s upcoming “Pride Prom”… outside of the debate over whether homosexuality is a sin or not – pride is! Pride is the opposite of everything Christianity stands for. I do not find it coincidental that this is the word the gay movement uses. Pride says “I am this way (or I was born this way) and there’s nothing you can do about it.” Christianity is 100% about changing everything you are and surrendering all your pride away to Him. If you think about it – all sin can be linked back to pride in some way or other. Those Christians in the gay movement are now stuck with a problem – even if they’ve found a way to convince themselves that it is not sinful, they are not allowed to be “proud”. But then again if they’ve found a way to convince themselves of the first point, I’m sure the second will be just as easily reconciled for them.
“When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.” – Proverbs 11:2
