The secret sin that disables church workers, leaders, and Pastors

What causes Christians to be completely disqualified for ministry in this late age for the Kingdom of God? Is it laziness, gossip, anger, lust, greed, false doctrine, or coveting?
The secret sin of pride
The first sin of Satan was pride and it has another name,-“False Humility.” It’s a convenient sin because it’s easy to hide. There is false Humility in your heart because you silently seek to be recognized by what you do or how effective you have become.
Pride walking, name-dropping, gift exalting, knowledge sharing, and the list goes on. You want people to know more about you than about who has called you. You say “to God be the Glory,” but what you do points back to how gifted, talented, and efficient you are. The LORD detests the proud, they will be punished. (Proverbs 16:5)
Guard your heart
Time is short, God doesn’t need a soloist in His orchestra. He tells us to guard our heart, it is the wellspring of life (Proverbs 4:23). Do not forget your first love and remember where you have fallen, repent. God hates the deeds of the Nicolaitans (or the practice thereof). So to those who have ears, let him hear what the Spirit says. The time is near. (Revelation 2:4-6)
Repent, change your mind on how you see yourself as God’s warrior. Do not be like a “fourth head” of the Godhead – The Father, the Son, The Holy Spirit & You. God shares His throne with no one!
