A proud guy is usually having a look down on issues and other people: and, after all, so long as you're looking down, you can't see whatever that's above you. That increases a negative query. How is it that individuals who're particularly evidently eaten up with delight can say they think in God and seem to themselves very spiritual? i'm afraid it ability they're worshipping an imaginary God. They theoretically admit themselves to be not anything within the presence of this phantom God, yet are rather forever imagining how He approves of them and thinks them much better than usual humans: that's, they pay a pennyworth of imaginary humility to Him and get out of it a pound’s worthy of satisfaction in the direction of their fellow-men. i guess it was once of these humans Christ was once pondering whilst He stated that a few may hold forth approximately Him and forged out devils in His identify, purely to be informed on the finish of the area that He had by no means recognized them. And any folks may perhaps at any second be during this death-trap. fortunately, we now have a try out. every time we discover that our spiritual existence is making us think that we're good—above all, that we're larger than anyone else—I imagine we can be convinced that we're being acted on, no longer via God, yet by means of the satan. the true attempt of being within the presence of God is, that you simply both ignore your self altogether or see your self as a small, soiled item. it really is larger to ignore your self altogether. it's a negative factor that the worst of all of the vices can smuggle itself into the very centre of our spiritual existence. yet you will see why. the opposite, and no more undesirable, vices come from the satan engaged on us via our animal nature. yet this doesn't come via our animal nature in any respect. It comes direct from Hell. it really is in basic terms religious: accordingly it's way more refined and lethal. for a similar cause, delight can frequently be used to overcome down the better vices. academics, actually, usually attract a boy’s delight, or, as they name it, his self-respect, to make him behave decently: many a guy has conquer cowardice, or lust, or ill-temper, via studying to imagine that they're underneath his dignity—that is, via delight. The satan laughs. he's completely content material to work out you turning into chaste and courageous and self-controlled supplied, forever, he's establishing in you the Dictatorship of Pride—just as he will be particularly content material to work out your chilblains cured if he was once allowed, in go back, to provide you melanoma. For satisfaction is non secular melanoma: it eats up the very hazard of affection, or contentment, or perhaps good judgment. earlier than leaving this topic i need to protect opposed to a few attainable misunderstandings: (1) excitement in being praised isn't really delight. the kid who's patted at the again for doing a lesson good, the girl whose good looks is praised by way of her lover, the stored soul to whom Christ says ‘Well done,’ are happy and should be. For right here the excitement lies now not in what you're yet within the incontrovertible fact that you've gotten happy a person you sought after (and rightly sought after) to delight. the difficulty starts if you happen to go from considering, ‘I have happy him; all is well,’ to pondering, ‘What an excellent individual i need to be to have performed it.
