    I’d bet that’s it because there’s nothing wrong with a little pride in his work.

    Christianity makes pride a sin and humility a virtue. How many accomplishments, how many victories, how many triumphs were killed in the cradle because of that belief?

    You’re talking about false humility, which is just as bad as the wrong kind of pride. There is nothing wrong with knowing you are skilled at something. Just be sure to remember that it is God who created you with the talents that you have.

    God also created the subject of the artwork. If Pasquale behaved like his cousin, Clem, about this, I’d agree with the Guardian Angel’s point of view!

    And why is the Golden Rule so admirable? It is just an attempt to sugar-coat the fact that Christianity’s morality wants you to give away all your possessions, live to serve the poor, and die in poverty—either that or live in guilt and give away all your money when you die.

    @phritzg,
    For what purpose and to what end?

    Anyone should be happy to receive such compliments—telling your closest friend about them is hardly bragging. Friends should be happy that you are happy and doing well. Being proud of your work and being happy about a teacher appreciating what you’ve done is nowhere near the same thing as bragging. :/ I’m all for teaching against bragging, but this was a bad way to do it. :/

    It is not necessary to have a god to please in order to have a moral sense, a knowledge of right and wrong. Animals help each other.

    …that was prideful yes, but in my opinion FAR short of bragging. Angel comes off as a douche here.

    The Golden Rule that I am familiar with is “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you” – nothing about living in poverty, and, by the way, it is a sentiment reflected by many of the major religions.
