Boot-Strap Pride

Self-Dependance is the pride sin that felled Lucifer, the beautiful angel of light in charge of God's wisdom secrets, and turned him into Satan, the Devil (Isaiah 14:14; Ezekiel 28:12-17). As long as there is someone bigger and better than him, the man with the "big wheel" pride can never be content. Now God is always going to be infinitely greater than any man can ever be. A man who wants to be be King of his own universe NEVER wants to meet God. That is why a lot of people waste a lot of time and words arguing that He does not exist. They really wish it were true because one day they will have to answer for their false estimates of their own importance.
