Well, let me make a guess; the Bible doesn’t recommend having an attitude of being superior to others, smarter, stronger, and richer and so on, it values instead equality and cooperation for the benefit of everybody.

Dude, you copied that and pasted it into the wrong thread.

You were supposed to copy and paste this:

Psalms 139:14-16; Ephesians 2:10; Genesis 1:26-27; Proverbs 3:26; Romans 8:29; John 15:5; John 15:11; Proverbs 23:7.

Sure!
I've read what the gospel of Jesus says about self pride and self image.
Jesus preaches about people, or Pharisees, like YOU.

"Jesus addressed this parable
to those who were convinced of their own righteousness
and despised everyone else.

"Two people went up to the temple area to pray;
one was a Pharisee and the other was a tax collector.
The Pharisee took up his position and spoke this prayer to himself,
'O God, I thank you that I am not like the rest of humanity --
greedy, dishonest, adulterous -- or even like this tax collector.
I fast twice a week, and I pay tithes on my whole income.’

But the tax collector stood off at a distance
and would not even raise his eyes to heaven
but beat his breast and prayed,
'O God, be merciful to me a sinner.'

I tell you, the latter went home justified, not the former;
for whoever exalts himself will be humbled,
and the one who humbles himself will be exalted."

Luke 18:9-14

WOW, you are right I done that, boy that sure take the cake. 15th. this is the first time you have been right from day one. Oh well when you get my age its hard telling what I may done. One time in Church I said a Scripture backwards word by word. No one said anything about it to me until the end of Church. Oh by the way my wife is in the other room having a good old time about this....

Nah...prune a branch, plant it and you have a new fruit bearing plant. All without the original vine. Or you can splice it onto something with a heartier root system to increase the yield...like they do with various heirloom veggies...

Not only is the Bible philosophically wrong its botanically wrong...
