You both (1) used an inaccruate - and Mormon - bible, and (2) left out the context. The NASB is more accurate. Here is the full quote. There heresy of believing in other gods is clear.

Pride = Thinking you know what we believe even when we deny that "that" is what we believe.

Pride= wanting to be like God. That goes back to original sin. Genesis 3:5.

4(C)The serpent said to the woman, "You surely will not die!

5"For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."

Um the KJV is an inaccurate bible, LOL! The bible says there are other gods, just that we are not to worship them.

There are many ways to be proud, thinking you know more than you do is one of them.

You left off the trailer for that one...
22 ¶ And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
Note that this is one place where Satan actually told the truth to sneak in the lie about not dying. The sin was disobedience not wanting to be like God we are commanded to emulate him.
