    The most dangerous man is the one with no self doubt.  WIth a little bit of material prosperity in one hand, and enough of a feel of dharma in the other, such a man declares that which he doesn't understand to be either irrelevant, non-existent, or colored wholly with the shade of his own wrong view.  The result is to re-injure the world in the ways one is broken because of the inability to confront the blind spot that self-doubt points toward.  How to wake up such a man before his actions drive past the point of oblivion?  This kind of man is a metaphor for a slightly awakened western civilization as well, possessing prosperity and a little bit of understanding of the subtle, while unconsciously destroying everying it does not understand.

     I doubt myself everyday.  I DO NOT, however, doubt God.  In and of myself, I would drop out every chance I got.  Standing on the promises of God, I am able to function/stay the course.  Note ...  we are ALL sinners! (I believe that in God's  eyes, no one of us is less or more in the department of sin.) We ALL are in need of  a Savior.  We need Him   .  and each other for the journey
