Are you equally unashamed to believe Noah's flood as a literal event ?
Actually you asked a question, which I responded to Can you not remember your own post?
I think that "proud to be a Christian" isn't the way to look at it, but I DO take pride in trying my very best to do what is right in God's eyes. My insurmountable failures in that regard are what keeps me humble and realizing my need for Jesus' sacrifice...
The term "proud" can have a negative connotation. Let's just say I'm not ashamed to say I'm a Christian.
Is this the kind of "proud" you mean?
Well.....you didn't answer that! Read your reply!
You said no.....but then, you just had to add more, didn't ya? You just had to muddle a simple Q&A.
It doesn't make any sense! :lol:
How's "what you're into," an answer to it?
So you admit you made a mistake and indeed asked a question in that post...try to pay closer attention to what you ask for the future...thanks
The Hebrew verb ga·ʼahʹ literally means “grow tall; get high” and is the root of a number of Hebrew words conveying the idea of pride. These related forms are rendered “haughtiness,” “self-exaltation,” and, in both good and bad senses, “eminence,” and “superiority.”—Job 8:11; Eze 47:5; Isa 9:9; Pr 8:13; Ps 68:34; Am 8:7.
Pride should therefore be rooted out of one’s personality for one’s own benefit. More important, it must be done if a person hopes to please God. One must even come to hate it, for God’s Word says: “The fear of Jehovah means the hating of bad. Self-exaltation and pride and the bad way and the perverse mouth I have hated.”—Pr 8:13.
EH???? You got problems comprehending? Lol.
If you'd just answered no - that would've been fine.
But like I said - you muddled it up by your illogical add-on. It damaged your "no"......and made your response incoherent! How should I know what you're on about! :lol:
Proud isn't the right term. Thankful is more like it. Thankful that God has given me the ability to discern His truth and accept His gift.
Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.
Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.
But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
I and my Father are one.
John 10: 24-30
Kinda reminds me of a sign outside a church I used to attend: "Father X, humble priest".
Except he was anything but humble.He was actually a total douchebag.
