The Tyranny of Pride

English – Spanish

Why are we not offended at insults and evils done to us? It is because God has removed the power and burden of pride in us. He has crucified our egos, which are a hindrance to any man or woman who desires to be free and live life to the fullest. The world thinks pride is a good thing, but God calls it evil; there are few things He despises more than man’s pride. It is written:

“Pride comes, then shame comes; but with the lowly is wisdom” (Proverbs 11:2 MKJV).

“Only by pride comes argument, but with those who take advice is wisdom” (Proverbs 13:10 MKJV).

“Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall” (Proverbs 16:18 MKJV).

“A man’s pride shall bring him low; but honor shall uphold the humble in spirit” (Proverbs 29:23 MKJV).

The world thinks pride is good. How wrong it is! If people only knew how much pride costs them! But almost all people, if they even recognize their pride, are too proud to face the fact that pride is not good; so they cling to their pride and inevitably succumb to anger, depression, self-pity, resentment, bitterness, fear, worry, revenge – all which lead, and bind them firmly, to loss, failure, defeat, humiliation, sorrow, disappointment, misery, suffering, destruction, and death in its many daily forms.

Do Christians Sin?

Are believers in Christ bound to sin for the rest of their lives, as some believe, or does He deliver us from sin and sinning by giving us a new Nature? The Scriptures may appear to say both, but what are they actually saying? Praise God, we know the truth of the matter, and the truth not only gives hope, but makes free when believed.

What Is the Inexcusable Sin?

From: Hernan To: The Path of Truth Sent: Thursday, March 17, 2016 10:02 AM Subject: Inexcusable sin   Hello Victor I want to do a question to you that of the inexcusable sin?Hernan From: Edwin Romero To: Hernán Sent: Sunday, March 20, 2016 10:48 AM Subject: El Pecado ImperdonableHernán, Te escribe Edwin Romero, traductor de The Path of Truth. Recibimos tu nota donde le haces una pregunta a Víctor sobre el pecado “inexcusable.” Aquí tienes una respuesta: Seguramente te refieres a estas Escrituras: “Por tanto os digo: Todo pecado y blasfemia será perdonado a los hombres; mas la blasfemia contra el Espíritu no les será perdonada. A cualquiera que dijere alguna palabra contra el Hijo del Hombre, le será perdonado; pero al que hable contra el Espíritu Santo, no le será perdonado, ni en este siglo ni en el venidero.” (Mateo 12:31-32 RV) Ese pecado (blasfemia) se refiere a atribuirle la obra de Dios a Satanás, a pesar de tener evidencia de lo contrario. Jesús había dado suficiente evidencia de que Él era de Dios, pero los hombres, principalmente los religiosos, creyeron que Él estaba actuando por el poder de Satanás. ¿Por qué? Porque ellos no creían en Él, y entonces ellos estaban sujetos al juicio en tanto que permanecieran en su incredulidad, blasfemando contra el Espíritu Santo. Si una persona está en incredulidad, no puede ser perdonada, ni en esta vida ni en la otra. Si esa persona llega a creer y se arrepiente, por la gracia de Dios...
