驕傲,最根本的罪

1380477672538750魯益師

        有一種惡是世上所有的人都不能避免的,但當在別人身上發現這種毛病時,任何人都會油然感到憎惡:除了基督徒之外,幾乎沒有人曾經想像過自己犯有這種罪。

        最根本的罪,最至極的惡是驕傲。憤怒、貪心、酗酒,所有這些罪行與驕傲相比,立即顯得微不足道……魔鬼之所以變成魔鬼,是因為驕傲的緣故:驕傲導致其它的罪惡,它是一種與上帝完全對立的心靈狀態。

       一個人如果生性驕傲,那麼,只要世界上有人比他能力強,比他富有或聰明,那人就是他的對手和敵人。

        一個人只要具有驕傲的心態,就無法認識上帝,因為驕傲的人永遠瞧不起各種人和事,只要他瞧不起人和事,他就無法看見任何比他高超的事物……□

Pride

C.S. Lewis

There is one vice of which no man in the world is free; which every one in the world loathes when he sees it in someone else ; and of which hardly any  people, except christians, ever imagine that they are guilty themselves…

The essential vice, the utmost evil, is Pride. Anger, greed, drunkenness,and all that, are mere fleabites in comparison: it was through Pride that the devil became the devil. Pride leads to every other vice: it is the complete anti-God state of mind…

If I am a proud man, then, as long as there is one man in the whole world more powerful, or richer, or cleverer than I, he is my rival and my enemy…

As long as you are proud you cannot know God. A proud man is always looking down on things and people: and, of course, as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above you…
