The Evil of Arrogance

Arrogance may be the worst evil that is present in the world. Webster defines arrogance as an attitude of superiority. Without arrogance, slavery, the holocaust, and the crusades would not have occurred. Without arrogance, there will be no prejudice and abuse of other human beings.

Arrogance leads to anger and hatred. The mind contaminated with arrogance lacks the ability to comprehend facts. The arrogant mind is like a distorted mirror. The distorted mirror does not reveal the true image, as the mind that is imbued with arrogance cannot see the truth.

The recent case in Florida is a good example of the destruction of arrogance.  The victim and the defendant presumably both had arrogance, which eventually led to the death of the youth. Because of the difference in race between the two protagonists, the case became a racial issue. Without regards to the facts, arrogance caused both sides to find fault or innocence depending on race.  Eventually this arrogance has led to anger, and even violence in the streets.

In our religion, arrogance is one of the evils that we ask God to help us eliminate in our daily lives. Without arrogance, we have less anger and hatred for others. Without arrogance we have a clear mind that can see the truth.
