Temptation is not a sin; it is a call to battle.


Desiderius Erasmus
Avoid sin for the simple reason that Christ loves you. But if you cannot do this, try to avoid it at least for your own sake.







The New Testament meets the Old Testament . . .







Our way out . . .

* Understand the battle for your affections















Thomas Chambers - “The Expulsive Power of a New Affection”
A moralist will be unsuccessful in trying to displace his love of the world by reviewing the ills of the world. Misplaced affections need to be replaced by the far greater power of the affection of the Gospel.














A short list . . .

* Our way out

* Stop lying to yourself









For instance . . .

1. I won’t get caught
2. No one will get hurt
3. God understands – he won’t care
4. I deserve this
5. I’m worthless, so it doesn’t matter
6. I can’t help it
7. I need this
8. Everyone does it
9. It’s OK just this once
10. Always being good gets old
A short list . . .

* Our way out

* Stop lying to yourself

* Look for God's way out

P. T. Forsythe
Unless there is within us that which is above us, we shall soon yield to that which is around us.
