St. John's Franklin Podcast

Kenny Benge preached a sermon entitled The Deadly Sin of Pride for The First Sunday of Lent  on February 17, 2013. During Lent, we are exploring an ancient taxonomy of sin to help us examine our lives, develop a lifestyle of repentance, and experience a fresh and joyous grace in Christ. Pride is the first, worst, and most prevalent of the seven deadly sins.  The Greeks warned of hubris, the overreaching arrogance that creates an illusion of invulnerability (“pride goes before a fall) and in the biblical view, pride is the fundamental violation and disordering of love because it puts the love of the human self before the love of God.
