There is a way that seems right to a man,
but its end is the way to death. (Prov 14:12, 16:25 ESV)

so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts. (Isa 55:9 ESV)

and he will make straight your paths. (Prov 3:5-6 ESV)


The "Obstacles" tab is meant to be read in the order shown in the right side bar (or bottom of the page for mobile devices) because each page builds on the information from previous pages. Each page should be read and hopefully understood before proceeding to the next page. Most of the pages have a side bar menu on the right side of the page (or bottom of the page for mobile devices), like the one on this page with the title "More Obstacles Pages...", and "Next/Previous" page names at the bottom of the page just above the footer. Some pages have a "More..." button just above the "Next/Previous" navigation links that will take you to a more in depth discussion of the current subject.
