Eph 4:32; be kind to one another tender-hearted, forgiving each other just as God in Christ has also forgiven you.
Luke 19:41-44; Luke 23:34; 2Cor 5:18-20;
We are presently in a study of satan's cosmic that is a system of demonic thinking that is comprised of the lies and deceit from demonic arrogance that since the fall in the Garden of Eden, apart from God in the darkness of spiritual death, has become the basis of the thinking of the entire human race. 1Cor 2:14; Rev 12:9;
Last time we noted that arrogance cannot stand social, economic, political, or spiritual pressure so it is why psychosis is so prevalent in our country today.
Those who advocate globalist international solutions to problems are divorced from reality and when the pressure becomes too great they go insane. When arrogance is challenged it reacts with emotional outbursts and abnormal behavior.
Terrorism is a result of arrogance. Islamic terrorism is clearly motivated from arrogance because its adherents believe that their religion is right and anyone who doesn't submit should be killed.
When arrogant mobs don't get their way they always eventually resort to violence and murder because they are of their father the devil, the first murderous mob boss. John 8:44-47;
Arrogance always has an unrealistic bloated opinion of self that resides hidden in the thinking in what appears to be a contented or satisfied state under normal circumstances but when rubbed the wrong way it reacts with sudden vituperation and violence.
Arrogance detonates under pressure. When you put pressure on an arrogant person, that pressure eventually squeezes the person to the point where he blows up.
This explains why believers leave churches where doctrine is taught, and why women marry the wrong person to hurt someone they "love" out of spite.
It explains why a man who's a child thinks he married the wrong women, because he "didn't get what he thought he should." If he is arrogant he will blow up sooner or later.
It is why believers are gossips, malingers, and motivated by revenge and retaliation. Arrogance is why domestic disputes have the potential for great violence that appears to come out of nowhere.
Many believers assume self-righteousness is spirituality. Arrogance causes discontentment so arrogant believers constantly change jobs and cannot really make friends they just use people.
This is also why believers cannot apply the doctrine that they have learned. Arrogance reacts emotionally so it cannot solve problems or apply doctrine.
The application of doctrine in problem solving demands the power of God the Holy Spirit inside God's spiritual power system. This means that even if you know the correct doctrine if you're living in cosmic system arrogance you will misapply it.
Motivational arrogance creates flaws or defects in the arrogant person's thinking, motivation, decisions, and actions so it affects all aspects of their decision making.
People can have real flaws from lack of virtue from residence in the cosmic system or they can have pseudo-flaws that are not necessarily related to sin or evil of the cosmic system.
Pseudo-flaws are merely personality expressions that have nothing to do with sin nature control of the soul, cosmic involvement, or reversionism. It may be a person's unique flair, poise, or style that is misunderstood and mistaken for arrogance.
A person can be moral and still be very flawed from lack of virtue. Morality is doing the right thing, virtue is doing the right thing for the right reason. This is why the Christian life is not simply being moral. Virtue is superior to morality because it never distorts morality into the evil of self-righteous legalism.
Hang-ups are obstacles to normal living that are developed from functioning under the motivational arrogance of cosmic one. Arrogant people have hang-ups that are created by the self-induced pressures of motivational arrogance.
Arrogant people develop emotional subjectivity that causes them to react to and reject categories of doctrinal information that conflict with their preconceptions.
Hang-ups from ignorance such as prejudice are based on blind arrogance from ignorance that expresses subjectivity without regard to specific knowledge.
Hang-ups from cognizance express subjectivity that is based on perceptions that is distorted by preconceptions. Hang-ups from cognizance can be related to the misuse, distortions or preconceptions that are related to one's position, power or authority in life.
The symptoms of arrogant hang-ups can be classified as syndromes. Syndromes are symptoms typical of a chronic condition. In this case, the condition is the believer's persistent involvement in the arrogance of cosmic one.
