LACK OF HUMILITY…
“Mormons don’t grovel before God, prating their unworthiness and imploring mercy. They are not slaves! They are men, made in the image of God! They proudly stand, hold their heads high, and put out their hands to shake that of God in greeting, as any worthy son would be expected to respectfully but proudly stand before a wise and good father.”
~These Amazing Mormons, page 82 (1961)~
Christ taught that a man must be meek and lowly:
“…Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 18:3).
“So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do” (Luke 17:10).
Joseph Smith said:
“The world owes me a good living and if I cannot get it without, I’ll steal it and catch me at it if you can.”
