Dangers of external control
In Christian tradition – Lucifer, the devil, was cast out of heaven because of the sin of pride; but Lucifer had a more pervasive and devastating character flaw – it was the desire to control others. Recall his temptation of Christ in the desert. He tried to get Christ to do things he didn’t wish to do. “Turn these stones into bread”, “Throw yourself off this high building and angels will rescue you”, “Bow down and worship me”. Contrast this desire to control others with God’s nature.
