Pride and Schism

September 4, 2016

 

‘In a special manner, take heed of pride:’ suspect it and subdue it in yourselves, and do what you can to bring it into disgrace with others. “Only by pride cometh contention.” I never yet saw one schism made, in which pride conjunct with ignorance was not the cause: nor ever did I know one person forward in a schism (to my remembrance), but pride was discernibly his disease.

Richard Baxter and William Orme, The Practical Works of the Rev. Richard Baxter, vol. 5 (London: James Duncan, 1830), 191.
