Q: Matthew – Running Man
PAX: Sparky, Chile, Infinity
According to both the Bible and universal Christian tradition, pride is the first sin, the chief sin, and the root of most other sins. Ironically though, many people today think of it as more of a virtue than a sin. Shouldn’t I take pride in myself? Don’t I need a healthy self-esteem?
The central feature of pride is enmity—enmity toward God and enmity toward our fellowmen. Enmity means “hatred toward, hostility to, or a state of opposition.” Pride is essentially competitive in nature.
