Pride's Subtleties

A good reminder for those of us in pursuit of theologically-kindled joy (strawberry-rhubarb theology):

"Pride is hard to subdue, and none so hard as the joint pride of piety and learning, and where men have made painful effort to eradicate their pride they may become inordinately proud of their humility."

--G. F. Moore, Judaism in the First Centuries of the Christian Era, 2:275

I just stubbled upon your blog. I am glad to be able to keep up with you as you are away from St. Louis now.
