This page is a collection of smallish examples that demonstrate that Man's ways do not work in the long run, while God's ways seem to work better. Pride in particular is a killer.
This page has been replaced (though I expect to write a completely new page later). Please move to God's Ways Work; Human Ways Do Not.
- On the working of pride in the human condition, and in human beings.
- On how it lies at the root of all evil and wrong.
- And how it is the thing that God hates above all, because of the harm it does, and because his own nature is the very opposite of pride.
