Self-sins!

“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves” 2 Timothy 3:1-2 

(A.W. Tozer)

We all have a number of self-sins:
  self-righteousness,
  self-pity,
  self-confidence,
  self-sufficiency,
  self-admiration,
  self-worth,
  self-love and 
  a host of others like them!
These self-sins are not something we do, they are something we are–and therein lies both their subtlety and their power. They dwell too deep within us and are too much a part of our natures, to come to our attention–until the light of God is focused upon them. 

The grosser manifestations of these sins–egotism, pride, arrogance, self-elevation, self-promotion–are strangely tolerated in Christian leaders, even in circles of impeccable orthodoxy! They are so much in evidence as actually, for many people, to become identified with the gospel. I trust that it is not a cynical observation to say that they appear these days to be a requisite for popularity in some sections of the  visible Church. 

Promoting self under the guise of promoting Christ–is currently so common as to excite little notice! 

“They do not have pure motives as they preach about Christ. They preach with selfish ambition, not sincerely” Philippians 1:17
