Love or Pride?

Love outside of it's Creator is not Love, but pride. If God is the creator of Love, rather if God is Love (1 John 4:7-11) how then can man love outside of God? Sin is rooted in pride. Pride is rooted in a recognition of self and from others, pride. When love is attempted outside of it's originator we run into a sort of prideful desire for recognition. In turn we create not love but a love of self which destroys the very premise of true love, which is to love others before yourself.

So we come down to the dilema yet again. Life, love, breath and all of the above is useless outside of God, outside of its Creator.
