All human beings are sinners because we are born in sin. The Church is not without sin because it is made up of sinners. Priests, sisters, bishops, cardinals and even Popes are sinners. Pope Francis warned us not to believe the misconception that the Church is filled only with the “pure”.
It is our belief that all believers are sinners and should be PROUD of Jesus because no one could claim to be a believer without ‘Pride In Christ’ which is one of the single most important things to be a believer.
It is a clear biblical truth that all are born in sin and all have a sin nature. Scripture says that God created humankind originally good and without a sin nature: “Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness.’ . . . God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them” (Genesis 1:26–27). However, Genesis 3 records the fall of Adam and Eve, and with that fall sin entered into the two previously sinless creatures. And when they had children, their sin nature was passed along to their offspring. Thus, every human being is a sinner.
Being PROUD of Jesus and His Gospel is one of the single most important things to be a believer yet there has been centuries-old silence among believers over PRIDE IN CHRIST because of the notion that PRIDE is always sinful. It appears as if history is being made in the Christian world because no one could claim to be a believer without being PROUD of Jesus and His Gospel.
It is our belief that being prideful is holy and is not a sin as long as we ultimately acknowledge God in our bragging or boasting, what He has accomplished in us and through us. Galatians 6:14 – Corinthians 1:31 – Therefore I boast in Christ…Romans 15:17
– The far-reaching impact of this great awakening of “Pride In Christ” among believers is finally being felt in churches of all denominations. – The centuries-old silence among believers over ‘Pride In Christ’ is being reversed. – Christian leaders of all denominations have begun delivering their sermons about the immense Biblical significance of being PROUD OF JESUS and His Gospel. – Believers are finally being able to express their PRIDE in Christ in public to bring Glory and Honor to Christ in a much more meaningful way. Revelation 5:12 – Romans 11:36 – Revelation 4:11
It was because of this great awakening of “Pride In Christ” among believers that a group of American entrepreneurs presented PROUD OF JESUS to the world as a Christian revolution for ‘Pride In Christ’ in 2012.
