I had to laugh at this sentence. (in a good way)

It is too true.

But it also seems soooo wrong because the verse is not saying that thinking more highly of yourself is going to happen and cause problems, but that we should not think more highly of ourselves so that this kind of thing does not happen. Taken that way, Rom 12:3 should mean that there would be no Lee rearing HIS ugly head. And imagine if that had been the case.

But in this particular environment, it is what the verse warns against that is what happened. And thus the very correct application of the verse to the early LRC in the US.
I once thought I was. . . . but I may have been mistaken Edge (with apologies)
