Pride is the Worst Viper (Edwards)

“Remember that pride is the worst viper that is in the heart, the greatest disturber of the soul’s peace and sweet communion with Christ; it was the first sin that ever was, and lies lowest in the foundation of Satan’s whole building…[it is the sin] most difficultly rooted out, and is the most hidden, secret, and deceitful of all lusts, and often creeps  in, insensibly, into the midst of religion and sometimes under the disguise of humility.”

Marsden, Jonathan Edwards: A Life, 225.
