They distract themselves from the serious ways they are tempted by focusing their attention upon the less serious ways in which thy are tempted, and take pride in their ability to resist the less serious temptations. They are unaware of how often they yield to the more serious temptations which are associated with the following troublesome words: ARROGANCE DECEPTION DISHONESTY PRESUMPTIONS UNBALANCED EXTREMISM FANATICISM RATIONALIZATION SELF-CENTERED FEARFULNESS DEFENSES CONTROLS MANIPULATIONS FALSE-ASSUMPTIONS ALIENATION DISCONNECTIONS BETTER-THAN-OTHERS JUDGMENTALISM CONDEMNATIONS KNOW-WHO-IS-GOOD KNOW-WHO-IS-EVIL Such words are troublesome to people who presume that they are good and better than others whom they regard as less than they are, if not evil. Thus they divert their attention to all the temptations which they successfully resist---and pride themselves upon those temptations which they successfully resist---and ignore the more serious temptations which they do not successfully resist.
