Publisher's Summary

Why has pride been said to be the father of all sins? 

Many false concepts exist about pride. Some think it’s only arrogance; others are confused about the positive use of the word when it comes to acknowledging someone’s performance. 

What is the meaning of pride, really? And what is spiritual pride? How come we often see it in others but fail to see it in ourselves? What does the Bible say about pride? Where does the sin come from, and why is it so common? How can we avoid becoming prideful, and why even bother? 

These and many other questions will be answered in this audiobook. You will see how pride has led up to serious consequences, how it eats at the very core of our identity, and how we can change. You will understand why it happens every day and the many manifestations of it. 

Aside from that, we’ll touch on topics like: 

  • How we all deceive ourselves and how to stop doing it.
  • How to attribute our self-esteem and worth to something solid and consistent, not something fleeting and fragile.
  • The difference between pride, hubris, and plain arrogance.
  • Why there are two different kinds of pride, one against God and one against others.
  • Scriptural references to encouragement, warnings, and stories, both from the Old and the New Testament.
  • Anecdotes about Jesus’ second temptation in the desert, Moses, and the parable of the talents.
  • Current manifestations of pride, including racism, sexism, and showing off status.
  • The nature of our true, divine identity as children of God, created in his image and other “feel-good” thoughts on life.

Many people don’t see it this way, but pride is truly the most important thing we need to control and eliminate. We all have something on which to work. We all need to realize better who we are. If we do, we won’t look down on others, and less conflict, more equality, and more tolerance will follow. 

Learn how to make the world a better place by overcoming your own ego, and instead of blowing up your self-image, submitting to God’s will and allowing him to make you the best you can be. Start seeing things from his perspective, not our own narrow-minded vision. See your potential and forget the world’s judgment of superficial matters.

Confronting

We all struggle a bit with pride, and I think books like these are helpful for self reflection and the christian lifestyle we all want to perfect.
