    I realised there is bad and good type of pride. The church teaches that pride is sinful but I think pride in God in the faith in Jesus is good. Pride in ones own self or similar is wrong. Because whoever we are or whatever we do good it is all a gift of God and Gods will. We are not under the law, we are saved by grace. By Jesus Christ so pride in one owns self is sinful or wrong. Pride in God is good. Thats why it is ok to built mighty and beautiful churches and cathedrals because we express pride in God and we glorify him.

    Because gods are too modest to be proud of themselves?
