Pride


What it is: Pride is excessive belief in one’s own abilities, that interferes with the individual’s recognition of the grace of God. It has been called the sin from which all others arise. Pride is also known as Vanity.

Why you do it: Well-meaning elementary school teachers told you to “believe in yourself.”

Your punishment in Hell will be: You’ll be broken on the wheel.

Associated symbols & suchlike: Pride is linked with the horse and the color violet.

“A proud man is always looking down on things and people; and, of course, as long as you’re looking down, you can’t see something that’s above you.” – C.S. Lewis

Pride in modern times is now more known as vanity, people have fair too much pride in there appearance and the way there look that people would rather cut there nose of to spite their face. If people are too busy looking at themselves they make others disappear by their self vanity.
