Is pride really the root of sin? If not, what is? Aaron and Brolin talk about the first respectable sin and how to combat it.
Directions for Dealing with Sin
- Apply the gospel.
- Depend on the Holy Spirit.
- Recognize your responsibility.
- Identify specific respectable sins
- Memorize and apply appropriate Scriptures.
- Cultivate the practice of prayer.
- Involve one or a few other believers with you.
- When I talk about specific areas of acceptable sins, one comment I often hear is that pride is the root cause of all of them. While I agree that pride does play a major role in the development and expression of our subtle sins, I believe there is another sin that is even more basic, more widespread, and more apt to be the root cause of our other sins. That is the sin of ungodliness, of which we are all guilty to some degree. - Bridges, Jerry. Respectable Sins(p. 47). The Navigators. Kindle Edition.
- Ungodliness may be defined as living one’s everyday life with little or no thought of God, or of God’s will, or of God’s glory, or of one’s dependence on God. - Bridges, Jerry. Respectable Sins(p. 48). The Navigators. Kindle Edition.
- God relegated to a devotional time.
- Prayerlessness and human-centered prayers.
- Meager interest in God and His Word.
