Tid Bit – Prideful to live a holy life?

It’s interesting that one would be accused of being prideful if he confesses to living a righteous life, and on the other hand, a Christian will be proclaimed as humble if he confesses to sinning daily in thought, word, and deed.

God has always required a person to live a holy life.  A person who practices righteousness is only doing what God requires, and it is done out of love for God.  His commandments are not burdensome.

But a person who claims to be a Christian and habitually sins, would this not be considered pure arrogance rather than humility?

The Bible doesn’t call us to be habitual sinners, but to forsake all sin (repent) as a condition of salvation.
