    Humility is a Hallmark Virtue of Maturing Believers in Christ. Here's a Secular Viewpoint worth pondering. (gb)

    "15 Ways to tell if someone is Arrogant or Humble"

    "Arrogant people say they believe in humility but their life says they believe in arrogance. Humble people speak the truth.
    The temptation to temper the truth and say what others want to hear, for example, is nearly universal. If you’ve found someone who speaks the truth give them a raise. I’ve seen people negotiate how truthful they are going to be with the boss – if you don’t tell, I won’t tell.

    "One indication arrogance rather than humility dominates is how and when people speak the real truth. People who use anger, bitterness, or feeling offended as fuel to speak the real truth are arrogant not humble. They are more concerned for themselves than others."

    15 Ways to spot humility or arrogance:

    1. Arrogant leaders advance their own agenda by telling others what they want to hear.

    2. Humble people serve higher purposes – not themselves. They do and say what’s best for others.

    3. Humble leaders put organizational success before their own. Don’t trust leaders who put their own success above organizational success.

    4. Humble leaders aren’t climbing the ladder; they are going down the stairs. They aren’t at the top of the heap; they are at the bottom.

    5. Arrogant leaders emphasize your responsibility to them.

    6. Humble leaders focus on responsibility to others.

    7. Arrogant managers don’t have time for people.

    8. Humble managers value people.

    9. Arrogant bosses focus more on getting than on giving.

    10. Arrogant people expect others to serve them.

    11. Humility serves others.

    12. Arrogant people brag about themselves.

    13. Humble people brag about others.

    14. Arrogance blames.

    15. Humility takes responsibility.

    "I believe humility is a virtue and pride is a vice. Humble people strengthen organizations. Arrogant people use organizations. What suggestions do you have for spotting arrogance or humility?"

    "Spam is most often considered to be electronic junk mail or junk newsgroup postings. Some people define spam even more generally as any unsolicited email. However, if a long-lost brother finds your email address and sends you a message, this could hardly be called spam, even though it is unsolicited. Real spam is generally email advertising for some product sent to a mailing list or newsgroup.

    "In addition to wasting people's time with unwanted e-mail, spam also eats up a lot of network bandwidth. Consequently, there are many organizations, as well as individuals, who have taken it upon themselves to fight spam with a variety of techniques. But because the Internet is public, there is really little that can be done to prevent spam, just as it is impossible to prevent junk mail. However, some online services have instituted policies to prevent spammers from spamming their subscribers."

    "Why is it Called Spam?"

    "There is some debate about the source of the term, but the generally accepted version is that it comes from the Monty Python song, "Spam spam spam spam, spam spam spam spam, lovely spam, wonderful spam". Like the song, spam is an endless repetition of worthless text. Another school of thought maintains that it comes from the computer group lab at the University of Southern California who gave it the name because it has many of the same characteristics as the lunch meat Spam:

    o Nobody wants it or ever asks for it.

    o No one ever eats it; it is the first item to be pushed to the side when eating the entrée.

    o Sometimes it is actually tasty, like 1% of junk mail that is really useful to some people.

    "The term spam can also be used to describe any "unwanted" email from a company or website -- typically at some point a user would have agreed to receive the email via subscription list opt-in -- a newer term called graymail is used to describe this particular type of spam."

    So your posts on this forum may be useful to a wayward soul?

    The desire to save souls has been used as justification for far worse than spam.

    That we are complaining about saving souls via spam, instead of via torture, is a sign that we live in relatively good times.
