Intellectual Pride

“Intellectual pride is very prevalent in our day. Some people exalt themselves above God and His anointed servants because of their learning and scholarly achievements. We must never allow our intellect to take priority over our spirit. Our intellect can feed our spirit and our spirit can feed our intellect, but if we allow our intellect to take precedence over our spirit, we will stumble, find fault, and may even lose our testimonies”.

(Joseph B. Wirthlin, “Press On,” Liahona, Nov 2004, 101–4)

  1. I so agree with you on the harm of spiritual pride. I have a very dear grandson that was ready to serve a mission and then became disappointed over an incident and now he has intellectual pride and it's been sad to see him leave the church.
    Blessings to you! LeAnn


Hope you have a brilliant day!!
