  1. “One Proud, One Humble” Parable of the Pharisee and publican Luke 18:9-14

  2. “Two men went to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee, and the other a publican” Luke 18:10

  3. Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.” “I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I posses” Luke 18:11-12

  4. “And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven… …But smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner” Luke 18:13

  5. “I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: Luke 18:14

  6. “For every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; ,,,And he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.” Luke 18:14

  7. Expresses gratitude that he is not as other men. Expresses sorrow for his sins

  8. Enumerates his works (fasting and tithing), as if to put God in his debt Acknowledges his sins, his debt to God

  9. Self-justified, self-sufficient, needs nothing Prays about himself with humility

  10. Prays about himself with pride In need of mercy

  11. Looking up in pride Looks down in humility

  12. His prayer is 34 words, 5 of which are “I”, one of which is “God” His prayer is 7 words, one which is “God” and one a personal pronoun “me”

  13. Alma 31:17 “…Thou hast elected us that we shall be saved, whilst all around us are elected to be cast by thy wrath down to hell; for the which holiness, O God, we thank thee… Prayer of the Zoramites on top of Rameumptom

  14. Alma 31:17 …and we also thank thee that thou hast elected us, that we may not be led away after the foolish traditions of our brethren, which doth bind them down to a belief of Christ, which doth lead their hearts to wander far from thee, our God.”

  15. Come Unto Christ Liberty Seek help from God Repentance Blessings Prosperity Humility Cycle Misery We come to ourselves Selfishness Selp-Indulgence Pride Cycle “Lifted up” Inequality and class divsion Hatred War Persecution of others Seek control over others and use others Insensitivity Past feeling Personal Apostasy Sin and Bondage

  16. Dieter F. Uchtodorf 2010 Oct. Conference “Pride is the great sin of self-elevation. It is for so many a personal Rameumptom, a holy stand that justifies envy, greed, and vanity. In a sense, pride is the original sin, for before the foundations of this earth, pride felled Lucifer… Some count these blessings as evidence of being “chosen,” “superior,” or “more righteous” than others. This is a sin of “Thank God I am more special than you.”

  17. Peter warned: “God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble” Peter 5:5 Moroni 7:44 “…for none is acceptable before God, save the meek and lowly in heart;…” 1 Corinthians 1:27 “But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty” D&C 1:19 “The weak things of the world shall come forth and break down the might and strong ones…”

  18. Elder Ezra Taft Benson “Pride exists not only from the top looking down, but often from the bottom looking up”

  19. C. S. Lewis “Pride gets no pleasure out of having something, only out of having more of it than the next man… …it is the comparison that makes you proud; the pleasure of being above the rest.

  20. Once the element of competition is gone, pride has gone. Whenever we find that our religious life is making us feel that we are good—above all, that we are better than someone else—I think we may be sure that we are being acted on, not by God, but by the devil.” Mere Christianity P 109-111

  21. “Do not say: O God, I thank thee that we are better than our brethren! but rather say; O Lord, forgive my unworthiness, and remember my brethren in mercy—yea acknowledge your unworthiness before God at all times.” Alma to son Shilbon Alma 38:14

  22. Mosiah 3:19 “…and becometh as a child, submissive, meek, humble, patient, full of love, willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon him, even as a child doth submit to his father.”

  23. Inspired by John Bytheway’s book: “Of Pigs, Pearls, and Prodigals” and Dieter F. Uchtodorf 2010 Oct. Conference “Pride and the Priesthood”
