PRIDE IS THE ERADICATOR OF INTELLECT BY STEVE FINNELL
Pride can cause you to appear intellectually challenged. The devil had a pride problem. The devil knew that Jesus was God in the flesh, and he still tried to tempt Jesus to sin. [Matthew 4:1-11]
PRIDE CAN CAUSE YOU TO APPEAR INTELLECTUALLY CHALLENGED.
Pride destroys the faculty for understanding.
Pride hinders the power of discernment.
Pride is a road-block to clear thinking.
Pride clouds our judgment.
Pride restricts our comprehension.
Pride causes us to think we are smarter than God.
Pride opens the avenue for us to believe man-made doctrine.
2 Peter 3:16 as also in all his letters, speaking in them of these things , in which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction.
Pride renders men unteachable and unstable and causes them to distort the truth, and believe the false doctrine of others, to their own destruction.
When we study God's word relying on our own understanding; rather than asking God to show us HIS truth we become a victim of are own pride.
Proverbs 3:5-7 Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight. 7 Do not be wise in your own eyes. Fear the Lord and turn away from evil.
DO NOT BE WISE IN YOUR OWN EYES.
PRIDE IS THE ERADICATOR OF INTELLECT!
