Self-Independence” is the fruit of Pride.
It is a condition of not depending on the set authority.
Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall. (Prov 16:18)
Pride will have a fall! Those that are of a haughty spirit, that think of themselves above what is necessary to comply, and look with contempt upon others that do, and those who with their pride affront God and disquiet others, will be brought down, either by repentance or by ruin.
Pharaoh, Sennacherib, Nebuchadnezzar, were instances of this.
