Isaiah 2:12 For the LORD of hosts has a day against all that is proud and lofty, against all that is lifted up — and it shall be brought low.
Anything that is proud will be brought down and humbled. The prophet Jeremiah is very clear:
Jeremiah 9:23-24 Thus says the LORD: "Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the LORD who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the LORD."
And Paul demonstrates our calling in these days:
2 Corinthians 10: We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ.
We exist, and are empowered, to bring down anything that is proud in itself and does not acknowledge God!
