The Pride of the World


Pride and arrogance is insanity.


Throughout "The Word", it teaches us the negative effects of pride and arrogancy.

Pride and arrogance separates brethren from one another, but humility and meekness brings brethren together.

Choose humility and meekness, rather than the insanity of pride and arrogance.
