5 THINGS THAT BROUGHT GREAT MEN DOWN

  1. FOOD.
    Ask Adam.
  2. PRIDE.
    Ask Lucifer. (Satan) (https://www.cgg.org/index.cfm/library/verses/id/5755/satans-pride-verses.htm, https://www.christianity.com/theology/theological-faq/how-did-lucifer-fall-and-become-satan-11557519.html)
  3. LOVE OF MONEY.
    Ask Judas Iscariot. According to Matthew 27:1–10, after learning that Jesus was to be crucified, Judas attempted to return the money he had been paid for his betrayal to the chief priests and committed suicide by hanging.
  4. LOVE OF GIFTS AND APPRECIATION.
    Ask Gehazi. (Gehazi, Geichazi, or Giezi, is a figure found in the Books of Kings in the Hebrew Bible. A servant of the prophet Elisha, Gehazi enjoyed a position of power but was ultimately corrupt, misusing his authority to cheat Naaman the Syrian, a general afflicted with leprosy. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gehazi)
  5. WOMEN.
    Ask Samson. Samson was betrayed by his lover Delilah, who, sent by the Philistines officials to entice him, ordered a servant to cut his hair while he was sleeping and turned him over to his Philistine enemies, who gouged out his eyes and forced him to grind grain in a mill at Gaza.
