False humility is prideful.. It’s bragging of being humble, using the claim to manipulate or control. It seeks attention and admiration, like Pharisees who prayed loudly on the street corner so people would know how righteous they were. In other words, “timidity is not humility”. False humility is a form of psychosis which was imprinted on most of us since birth. It is a mental illness because it locks us in a victim state of keeping our light turned down, denying who we really are and silently begging for permission to simply show up as ourselves in the world. If someone keeps on dealing with you, and expects you to be quiet until you are silenced to early grave because he/she is in power, the boss, or a person of high profile and you remain quiet, that does not mean that you are humble, it is false humility.
False humility does nothing to help our character development, and doesn’t help change our personality or our actions in any way. Don’t ever say there. Have you ever reacted in such lockdown state or horrible situation and you are tagged to be an arrogant person? They are the chief sponsor and the grandparents of the arrogance. It is a strategy used to convert someone into self-prison, as a copout to avoid having to deal with something or actually do something besides complain, like playing helpless. Now, if a person is being dishonest, it is false.
Every human being has the LION heart on the inside of him/her. Though, some can control themselves to an extent. The only person who can take the shit is a person targeting to get something from you and when they do, you will see the person true colour. Some will scream at once because some people are more emotional than other, it is because our temperaments are different and that doesn’t mean that those who screamed are stupid or arrogant. Besides, many have received help and mercy in crying out at the moment of pain and frustration.
According to the speech of Apostle Jonson Suleman on October 1st 2017 on the independent day, in respond to what is happening in Nigeria, he said. If a father have five children and they ten potion of blessing are supposed to share for them consecutively and the father give tight potion to one person and share two potion to four people, one day, they will fight. He continue by saying, there are some tribe that uses hash way to express their filling, and the best thing is to ignore them, but not using gun against them. You must tolerate, using him-self when a lady he help blackmailed him.
Uses religious terms to justify cruelty or questionable behaviour also is a false humility! God give us power to take dominion over everything he created excluding our fellow human. Compassion is definitely missing when people’s poor judgment and lack of wisdom do irreparable damage to their families, their organizations, or country.
It also looks like humility on the surface to say that you’re not really good enough at anything, but what it really does is release you from the responsibility God gave you to nurture your talent and use it for good. The treasures God placed within you are too valuable to ignore. It is a slap in God’s face to undermine them. When does it cross the line into pride? When you are so consumed with your own talents that you could care less about what others have to offer. That is how you know you have gone too far. Our enemy seems to have much success with keeping us on the “humble” side, safely tucking away our talents and squandering them so that they are not used to advance the kingdom of God or to create harmony on this planet earth.
Side-Stepping The Call To Leadership.
All of us are leaders in some way or another, whether we want to admit it or not. The very call to go and make disciples is a call to leadership. We are saying, “Come follow me as I follow Christ.” False humility causes us to back away from the courageous act of leading others. Admittedly, it is scary to lead others. What if you lead them the wrong way? But just because the potential is there to make mistakes doesn’t mean that we have permission to hide in fear of leadership. Really, when most people avoid leadership, they are avoiding responsibility. With authority comes responsibility and some people avoid this like the plague. The world will have no inspiration or strength without Christ-following, courageous leaders rising up to take their place. Saying you are not up to the task given to you is false humility
Ignoring Our Authority In Christ.
We make too little of holy boldness in Christian circles today. Remember when the Holy Spirit fell in the early church and as a result they “spoke the word of God boldly?” Maybe we are afraid to preach too much about boldness for fear people will get wacky. However, we need to be aware that God has not called us to be pacifists in our struggle against the forces of evil. False humility can keep us and others around us bound in sin, when we have the power within us to set others free. There is a time to confront people in their sin and there is a time to contend with the forces of evil in our own lives. I have heard the illustration used of a police officer who stood by and allowed crimes to take place before his eyes. That would be a tragedy. Why then, do we not notice the tragedy of not using our authority to set people free and release the power of God on the earth? False humility tells us that such acts are only for super ministers. False humility says, “Who am I to do such great things?” We forget that it is not because of who we are alone, but because of who Jesus made us to be that we are what we are and that we have the power that we have.
