    I've been thinking alot about Pride today. I think it's one of the biggest problems we have as a people. We are a very proud people and pride comes before destruction. That's why we are in danger of losing our Republic.

    I am convinced that in order to save our Republic we have to reform ourselves. We have to become a humble people. So I thought I'd share the most powerful sermon I know of concerning the evils of pride and how to overcome that flaw in ourselves. I would invite everyone to read it for themselves and think of something you can reform in your life to eliminate pride. I would also invite anyone to share their thoughts or any other quotes or sermons on the matter. If we keep sharing our knowledge, we can all grow together. I'll post some excerpts from Beware of Pride:

    About the causes of Pride:

    About emnity with our fellow men

    Some solutions to pride:
    I know I've posted alot. Please read what you can and ponder it. And let's discuss more about it. Put a desire for humility in our hearts. The key to fixing our Republic and our world is fixing ourselves and our family. That is the only way.

    Then we will restore the Republic. But that won't happen until we've learned to govern ourselves.

    Yes, pride is sneaky, seems to creep up behind ya and ya don't even know you are doing it. For me anyhow. I'll be waddling along, thinking everything is fine, then BOOM, the Lord shows me something else I'm doing wrong in pride, or my heart is wrong somehow. Not fun to be pruned, but I'm glad He does.
