Destructive Pride

Pride and arrogance have been the downfall of many people. In ancient times, Alexander the Great was once trying to attack some enemies who had situated themselves on a high mountain that was almost impossible to get to. Alexander tried to negotiate with the enemy but was unsuccessful. He was so frustrated that he was almost ready to give up until one of the enemies uttered a statement of tremendous arrogance. The enemy told him that to defeat them, he would have to “find soldiers that could fly.” This so infuriated Alexander that he was stirred to action. He found a way to defeat this enemy despite the seeming impossibility. The enemy’s pride resulted in their defeat and death.

The Scriptures tell us the same thing. Proverbs 16:18 says, “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.” The next verse tells us, “Better to be lowly in spirit and among the oppressed than to share plunder with the proud.” God cannot use the proud of heart. The proud seek to glorify themselves rather than God. God does not bless the proud but he lifts up the humble as Isaiah 66:2 tells us:

“This is the one I esteem: he who is humble and contrite in spirit, and trembles at my word.”

Let us always keep this in mind so that we will never be prideful and find ourselves of no use to God.

Hey guys!

I know some folks here who have gotten results with Male-Extra penis enhancement pills. Im just about to order as i've been hearing amazing results with it. But first off, I want to know if Male Extra does it work as good as they say it does?

I know 1-2 inches Penis growth is realistic and easily accomplished. But I'd like REAL FAST penis growth in the 5 inches range. Dont laugh, I want to have the best penis growth possible because my new girlfriend dated a friggin porn stud!

Guys here know what im talking about?

I want...no make that I NEED to know the best way to enlarge Penis. Male-extra pills promises 3 inches growth within several weeks or they return your money. So I guess that essentially means, if my penis dont grow real fast? They lose money, coz I got to use the pills at the same time get my money back right?

Does this seem like a scam?

Please reply at the soonest possible time!
I need to make a decision fast!

Im already sold on it to be honest, but I just need that one last push so I dont put this off any longer.


The advertisement for the pill I last saw at this site. I hope its still there.
