14. Some truths from the Orthodox Faith regarding vainglory:

The vainglorious man is an idolator, although he is called a believer.

Prelest, also known as: spiritual delusion, spiritual deception, delusion, illusion, according to Holy Fathers of Orthodox Church, a false spiritual state, a spiritual illness, "a wounding of human nature by falsehood".

"Pride, vanity, self-esteem. Lacking a spirit/virtue of humility."

"The spirit of kenodoxia, which we may term vain or idle glory."
