Christian, what is your AQ: Arrogance Quotient?

There is no room for arrogance in Christianity. Yet, it is alive, well, and flourishing in the church family.

Arrogance is the belief that I am better than you.

One need look no further than Jesus to see that humility rather than arrogance is the characteristic Christians should adopt. The Apostle Paul writes:

Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of man. He humbled Himself … (Philippians 2: 5 – 8 (NKJV)).

Most people are familiar with the words and meaning behind the letters “IQ” – intelligence quotient.

Christians need to recognize and understand a similar set of letters: AQ – Arrogance Quotient.

C.S. Lewis noted, “pride is a universal human problem.”
