30 Days Against Pride

Last month was considered by the LGBT community as their pride month. To rally against it, we posted Scripture passages and quotations from various authors with the following hashtags: #30daysagainstpride #notopridemonth #Godhatestheproud. We primarily posted them on FaceBook.

We, at Herald of Grace Covenant Bible Church of Cavite, take a bold stand against pride and the LGBT community’s promotion of normalizing the sin of homosexuality. That is why we preach to expose sin, to humble the pride of man, and to exalt the grace of God in the gospel of Christ Jesus.

We pray that these posts reach the community so that they may see the wickedness of their sins and that they can receive pardon in Christ’s blood and righteousness by faith.

Affirmation and denials:

  • We affirm that no Christian is prideful.
  • We affirm that Christians are poor in spirit and humbled by grace.
  • We affirm that the Christians boast in nothing else but in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ alone (Gal 6:14).
  • We affirm that pride is an affront to the holiness of God and that pride is a sin that must be repented of before God.
  • We affirm that a proud Christian is a misnomer.
  • We deny that a Christian can be proud of himself and be under grace.
  • We deny that living a prideful life inherits the kingdom of God.
  • We deny that there are homosexual Christians.
  • We deny that a practicing homosexuals have the saving grace of God.
  • We deny that homosexuals are beyond the reach of God’s grace.

Here are the quotations from Day 1 to 30.

Day 1-24 exposes the danger and foolishness of pride

Day 1 God hates pride.

Proverbs 8:13 “The fear of the Lord is to hate evil; PRIDE and arrogance and the evil way and the perverted mouth, I hate.

Day 2 Pride is not joyful.

Pride inside should not give us joy. It should make us sorrowful.

Day 3 Pride is destructive.

Proverbs 11:2 When pride comes, then comes dishonor, But with the humble is wisdom.

Day 4 Boast no more!

1 Samuel 2:3 “Boast no more so very proudly, Do not let arrogance come out of your mouth; For the Lord is a God of knowledge, And with Him actions are weighed.

Day 5 Pride is foolishness.

However great a man may be with worldly pomp, if he is wicked, then he is a leper in God’s eye. To boast of sin is to boast of our infamy as if a prisoner should boast of his fetters or be proud of his halter. – T. Watson

Day 6 God judges the proud.

Isa 2:10-11 Enter into the rock and hide in the dust from before the terror of the LORD, and from the splendor of his majesty. The haughty looks of man shall be brought low, and the lofty pride of men shall be humbled, and the LORD alone will be exalted in that day.

Day 7 Grace kills pride.

God’s Lordship and man’s pride can never go together. Man humbled by grace cannot live a life full of pride. Grace kills pride. – SCBC Pulpit

Day 8 The proud should be humbled.

Job 40:12 Look on everyone who is proud, and humble him, And tread down the wicked where they stand.”

Day 9 The proud are not truly blessed!

Psalms 40:4 How blessed is the man who has made the Lord his trust, And has not turned to the proud, nor to those who lapse into falsehood.

Day 10 Pride is an enemy.

Self is the most treacherous enemy, and the most insinuating deceiver in the world. Of all other vices, it is both the hardest to find out, and the hardest to cure. – Richard Baxter

Day 11 Pride is an abomination.

Proverbs 16:5 Everyone who is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord; Assuredly, he will not be unpunished.

Day 12 Pride attacks God.

“Pride is a devastating sin and is complex. Most sins turn us away from God, but pride directly attacks God. It lifts us above and against God, seeking to dethrone Him by enthroning ourselves.”– Joel Beeke

Day 13 The proud are full of themselves.

“God sends no one away empty except those who are full of themselves.”- D.L. Moody

Day 14 Pride is a dishonor.

Jesus said, “And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted” (Matthew 23:12). The way up is always down. Satan fell because he said, “I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God” (Isaiah 14:13). He sought honor and dishonored himself. – Adrian Rogers

Day 15 Pride is not true happiness.

Pride is the presumption that we can be happy without depending on God as the source of our happiness and without caring if others find their happiness in God… If you take the desire to be happy and strip away from it God as the fountain of your happiness, and people as the recipients of your happiness, what you have left is pride. Pride is the pursuit of happiness anywhere but in the glory of God and the good of other people.– John Piper

Day 16 Proud heart is a mark of the wicked.

Proverbs 21:4 Haughty eyes and a proud heart, The lamp of the wicked, is sin.

Day 17 Pride is not from God.

1 John 2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.

Day 18 To know self is to be humble.

“They that know God will be humble, and they that know themselves, cannot be proud.”– John Flavel

Day 19 God opposes the proud.

James 4:6 But He gives a greater grace. Therefore it says, “God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”

Day 20 Pride is the worst!

Pride is the worst viper in the human heart! Pride is the greatest disturber of the soul’s peace, and of sweet communion with Christ. Pride is with the greatest difficulty rooted out. Pride is the most hidden, secret, and deceitful of all lusts! Pride often creeps insensibly into the midst of religion, even, sometimes, under the disguise of humility itself!- Jonathan Edwards

Day 21 Pride is natural

‘If we know our hearts, we know that they are prone to pride because pride is natural. Humility is supernatural. As Charles Spurgeon explained, “There is nothing into which the heart of man easily falls as pride, and yet there is novice which is more frequently, and emphatically, and more eloquently condemned in Scripture.”‘- Wayne Mack, Humility: The Forgotten Virtue, 98

Day 22 No man is not created to be gay.

“Just because a guys struggles with same-sex desire doesn’t mean that God made him gay, any more that a guy struggling with anger means God made him a murderer. You have a choice about what you do with every temptation.” – Ray Comfort.

Day 23 Pride is evil

James 4:16 But as it is, you boast in your arrogance; all such boasting is evil.

Day 24 Pride is deadly

Pride is a spiritual cancer that devours families, destroys marriages, divides churches, and corrupts governments.God Culture Media

Day 25-30 are posts on how to deal with a pride heart and the virtue that opposed to it.

Day 25 To be humble is better.

Proverbs 16:19 It is better to be humble in spirit with the lowly Than to divide the spoil with the proud.

Day 26 To destroy pride, begin with the heart

“The true throne of pride everywhere is the heart of man. If we desire, by God’s grace, to put down pride, the only way is to begin with the heart.”– Charles H. Spurgeon, ‘What is Pride?’

Day 27 To be humble, be like Christ.

Philippians 2

3 Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility consider one another as more important than yourselves; 4 do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. 5 Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus. 6 who, as He already existed in the form of God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, 7 but emptied Himself by taking the form of a bond-servant and being born in the likeness of men. Be humble like Christ.

Day 28 There is no room for pride for those in Christ

Humility is the grand consequence when we sit at the foot of the cross. There’s just no room for haughtiness before the bloody cross of Christ.- Joshua Eliaquim Ramos

Day 29 Humility is all

This way is first humility, second humility, third humility, and however often you should ask me I would say the same… if humility does not precede and accompany and follow every good work we do, and if it is not set before us to look upon, and beside us to lean upon, and behind us to fence us in, pride will wrest from our hand any good deed we do while we are in the very act of taking pleasure in it. It is true that other defects have to be feared in our sins, but pride is to be feared in our very acts of virtue; otherwise, those praiseworthy acts will be lost through the desire of praise itself. – Augustine

Day 30 Growth in humility is a mark of every Christian

When the corn is nearly ripe it bows the head and stoops lower than when it was green. When the people of God are near ripe for heaven, they grow more humble and self-denying… Paul had one foot in heaven when he called himself the chiefest of sinners and least of saints.– John Flavel

There you go! This 30 days against pride does not end our battle against the sin of pride. If you are a professing Christian and you favor the LGBTQ or you are swelling with pride, meditate upon these truths. May we always bring to mind the destructive effect of pride and may we cultivate a humble heart towards Christlikeness.
