What Is The Pride Of LIfe

1st John says: For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

What is the pride of life? I'm asking because I don't know. And is the lust of the eyes and flesh the same thing?

Leslie-- On another blog, they posted this comment of yours:
//Jesus took 39 stripes for the 39 major diseases//

Would you explain how this lines up with the Bible?
---Donna66 on 7/28/11

Thank you MarkV. Try again Leslie, one post at a time, without the commentary and see what happens. If the post has more than one part, post one, wait a day and post the other. Unless the post is profane, or violates one or more of the "Blogger instructions" it will post. Be patient:o)

The reason (whether you believe this or not) my responses did not get posted is because they go in line with the Bible and expose sins, and the Moderator does NOT go in line with the Bible and is involved in those sins. Believe it or don't but I exposed the Moderator, and that person does NOT want to be exposed, thus my responses were not posted. Darkness only wants to stay in darkness, but when the light hits it, it will run.

Can anyone answer why two times I posted what lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, and pride of life were according to the Bible, and both times I also put another response to the Moderator on there. Both times the other responses got posted but the response on what they were according to the Bible did not both times. Seems to be more than just a computer error, but a human error of not wanting their sins exposed.
---Leslie on 7/28/11

Leslie, nothing surprises coming from the post you put out. Now you blame the Mod's who told you the computer did not post it, and for a reason the computer found it not able to post. Either two many post together or for another reason. Mod's cannot control computer information posted unless the computers break down or they shut them down. You seem to have a gripe with everyone. You should take a death breath, and think positive.
On the blog, I think that Bill-willa and Joseph are correct in their answers.
---Mark_V. on 7/28/11

Oh, Leslie! Again, you do not know WHY anything you write didn't get this point it is probably impossible to figure out which post you are talking about! Why attribute sin to them when you don't know?

be careful.
Mat 7:2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
---Donna66 on 7/28/11

I did send that post about what Lust of the Flesh, Lust of the Eyes, and Pride of Life is again a second time to this blog, and then sent a post to the Moderator that I posted it again. Again for the second time, the Moderator did NOT post this response, but only posted the comment that I sent the response. This is how I know that the Moderator is involved in the sins of these things, and is not wanting to offend people but does not care if they offend God and go AGAINST the Bible. Also, the Moderator LIED about not getting it the first time. The Moderator is therefore AGAINST God and the Bible and in sin.
---Leslie on 7/28/11

There were some very good definintions of lust and pride.

I am going to add another one. Being so proud of every word you write that you cannot stand to have some not posted.

It reminds me that the moderators who have a hard job must make decisions. It does not make me think that I cannot be wrong or that my words are so important.

Agape to all.
---Samuel on 7/28/11

Moderator - I just sent my comment of what these things are to this post. If you do not post it, I would say that lying is another sin to add to the list of sins you are into, because that means you did get the post, but just do not want to post it, due to you being involved in these sins, or not wanting to offend people over offending God (people pleaser, and not a God pleaser).
---Leslie on 7/28/11

Chria9396 - In your lingo and others as well, anti-Christian = anti-Bible, and anti-God, because it might "offend" people. So we try to please people and not offend them, and in the process, we end up not pleasing God (offending God), and going AGAINST Him and the Bible. How do I know this, because MOST of the responses on Christianet go AGAINST the Bible. The ones that do go with the Bible MOST of the time do NOT get posted.
---Leslie on 7/28/11

In defense of the moderator(s): Given the fact that there are a wide variety of opinions posted, some blatantly anti christian, I find it hard to believe that some posts or posters are deliberately ignored or not posted. It's obvious that much that is posted is contrary to mods opinions or beliefs. From my personal experience, the only times I can think of that something which I submitted was not posted, was when I did 2 or 3 in a row, usually to the same blog question. Most times I have just resubmitted a post later with no problem.
---chria9396 on 7/27/11

Actually, Leslie we never saw your post. Either you didn't submit it properly or the computer stopped you.

Thanks Donna for bring some sense to the blog :)
---Moderator on 7/27/11

//I know for a fact that this person has committed the sins of lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, and pride of life, due to the fact they will not post my responses.//

You do not know anything about the mods (plural) or whoever decided not to post a response of yours. You know nothing about their sins. We all fail to get posted at times. Certainly, you DO know that it is a sin to accuse others falsely. See Commandment #9. "Thou shall not bear false witness..."
---Donna66 on 7/27/11

Donna5535 - If you want to know the answer to this question, why not ask the Moderator. I know for a fact that this person has committed the sins of lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, and pride of life, due to the fact they will not post my responses. Also, that person is afraid of offending people over offending God. Ask the Moderator, and see what they respond.
---Leslie on 7/23/11

These seem like good answers and distinctions. Just wanted to add that to me the "pride of life" includes the motivation derived by the world's view of success on earth. And the "lust of the eye," could be as simple as strong attraction to a red hat because the color is perceived as "pretty" or desirable.
---jody on 7/23/11

lit.Gk: "Love not the world, neither the things in the world. If any person love the world, the love of the Father is not in that one: because all that in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the foolish exalting of life, is not of the Father, but is of the mundane. And the world passes away, and the lust of it: but one doing the will of God, on that lives without end." I John 2:15-17.

the pride of life?means just that,allowing the desires,lusts,all that is in the world,all the world offers,to rule your life,and boast,and be proud of it to boot.
---tom2 on 7/23/11

"lust of the flesh" > passion for what the flesh wants to feel
"lust of the eyes" > passion for what we like to see, and maybe wanting to see things in a way that justifies what we want
"pride of life" can be what has us in denial about whatever shows that our selfish pleasures are not really good for us, insisting on thinking what justifies the selfish pleasures we want in life

But these things can't love us. And once we have met the challenge of getting the pleasure person or pleasure things we want, it can get uninteresting quickly so we get tired of what we get, like kids can stop playing with Christmas presents, within days. Because what pride wants does not give us what pride boasts!
---Bill_willa6989 on 7/22/11

The pride of life is a sense of self sufficiency, a self-confident boasting of one's livelihood, or that which one believes to be one's own accomplishments concerning ones present position in life.
The lust of the eyes is setting one's focus on, passionately desiring, or envying that which one perceives, or considers to be exclusively someone else's to possess.
The lust of the flesh are the longings of a sensually based mentality focused on the deceptive, and enticing, external adornments, passions, and sensual pleasures of this life.
---joseph on 7/22/11

The pride of life is the product of feeling you are responsablr for your good fortunes in life and gloating in that.

Much like David felt when realizing Bathsheba was Uriah's wife and pursuing her any way because he was more worthy of her because he was king.

Not taking into account that God put him there and was the one who he should have been regarded as his portion and provider.

But through pride, got big headed and became god unto himself.
