It's tempting to listen to that lying voice in my head when it tells me that I'm limiting my potential by embracing Christ. "If you would just let go of this rudimentary way of thinking, you could reach new planes of knowledge and existence. Think of the philosophers you read who are such intelligent and deep thinkers. You could be one of them!"
Spelled out in this way, the appeal to my pride is quite clear. That voice is suggesting that the potential of my mind is greater than the infinite God. How foolish! Please help me cling to you, Lord, and not listen to the lying voice that wants to make me my highest god.
