Mormon - Chapter 8

Moroni clearly did see our day and the pride, wickedness and calamity that would be so prevalent among us.  Too often, I have read this chapter and thought of everybody else; those wicked people who are not us.  Today, I noticed this important little verse:
 36 And I know that ye do walk in the pride of your hearts; and there are none save a few only who do not lift themselves up in the pride of their hearts, unto the wearing of very fine apparel, unto envying, and strifes, and malice, and persecutions, and all manner of iniquities; and your churches, yea, even every one, have become polluted because of the pride of your hearts.
It seems pretty clear that Moroni includes even The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as a church that is polluted by pride.  He is not only speaking from the dust to those wicked other guys, he is clearly speaking to us.
