Whitlock: Pro sports leagues are riding the gay and black “pride” trails to hell

The Bible takes a clear position on the subject of pride. It is considered Satan’s favorite aphrodisiac, stronger than wine, drugs, money or brute force. A number of verses in the book of Proverbs clarify God’s position on pride.

Proverbs 11:2: “When pride comes, shame comes, but with the humble is wisdom.”

Proverbs 16:18: “Pride will bring him down, but he who is humble will gain honor.”

Proverbs 8:13: “The fear of the Lord is hatred of evil. I hate pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech.”

Proverbs 16:18: “Pride precedes destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.”

Catholics believe that pride is one of the seven deadly sins – lust, greed, envy, sloth, gluttony, and envy being the others – and the root of all sin.

Ivan Provorov, a defense attorney for the Philadelphia Flyers, is a member of the Russian Orthodox Church, an offshoot of Roman Catholicism. No one should be surprised that he refused to participate in his team’s “Pride Night” activities. In fact, no serious Christian should be involved in any celebration of pride, whether it be Gay Pride, Black Pride, Trans Pride, American Pride, Egg McMuffin Pride, or even Pride Pride.

Pride is rooted in idolatry, the prioritization of a symbol, thing, or activity over the worship of God.

Tuesday night, during the pre-game warm-up, Provorov refused to wear an LGBTQ+ jersey and use a rainbow-ribboned cane. He told reporters he wanted to stay true to himself and his religion. His decision sparked ridicule and opposition inside and outside the ice hockey world. NHL Network broadcaster Ethan Hradek recommended that Provorov should fight in the Ukrainian-Russian war.

“Ivan Provorov can hop on a plane any day and return to a place where he feels more comfortable, take less money with him and get on with his life if that’s a problem for him. If this is such a big issue for him, maybe integrating into his group of teammates and into the community here in this country, that’s fine. Listen, you can feel whatever you want. But the nice thing is, if it bothers you that much, there’s always a chance to go back to where you’re more comfortable – I understand there’s some kind of conflict going on over there, maybe you’ll interfere.”

Tim Micallef, host of a popular sports talk show in Canada, torn Provorov with the popular wrong side of history argument.

“I will always be on the side of equality,” he said. “People will hide behind ideologies, like religion, amazingly. But I’m strong in this case and I’m feeling pretty good. Either you are for equality or you are on the wrong side of history. Period.”

Some people pursue God, not history. Man is the god of recorded history. Micallef and others worship man. Provorov worships God.

Man believes that pride is a virtue. The Bible says that pride is Satan’s best tool for destruction. who should i believe

I see the destructive power of pride every day. Even the written history of man reflects the destructiveness of pride. White supremacy is rooted in racial pride/racial idolatry. Black pride works the same as white pride. That’s why Black Lives Matter advocates delight in seeing white people kneel down and ask for forgiveness.

The prioritization of skin color as a primary identity has led black people to embrace and defend a culture that denigrates and dehumanizes black people. We ignore the slaughter of our children because of the killer’s race. This is black pride. It forbids black people to hate their sin. God commands us to hate sin, not people. Hating sin is good.

“The fear of the Lord is hatred of evil.”

America’s proud embrace has reversed God’s command. We hate people and celebrate sin.

Ivan Provorov is now hated because his faith compels him to avoid a lifestyle that the Bible says is unhealthy. He doesn’t agree to feigning pride in an activity he believes is wrong. He doesn’t hate gays. He does not advocate that we deny gay people basic freedoms, rights and respect. He rejects pride, a mortal sin in his opinion.

What would lead to a better society: hating people or rejecting pride?

The answer is simple. We should reject pride. It breeds malice and division. People’s sexual preferences don’t qualify them for a special night out. Neither does skin color.

Human nature is evil. Ivan Provorov and many other believers embrace the teachings of the Bible because they are the best way to combat our destructive nature. Provorov wants to be on the right side of God because he knows that without biblical direction man is unable to create a just world.

Man uses hatred of man to establish justice. God tells us that hatred of sin breeds righteousness.

just let me do it I have a weight problem. I’m told to hate Ronald McDonald. God tells me to hate gluttony.

That sounds like a joke. It is not. The Awoken have developed arguments that obesity is a by-product of white supremacy. Here is an example. In a few years, the NHL and other sports leagues will host Obesity Pride Nights. They’ll smother the hockey puck in sauce and demand that the players eat fried chicken and cheeseburgers on the ice.
