Facing Temptation [March 6, 2011]

[powerpress]

Speaker: Brian Doten

Series: James #5

Title: Facing temptation

Text: James 1:13 – 15

Description: James (and the rest of the Bible) is clear that God never tempts anyone to sin.  Rather, James (and the rest of the Bible) teaches us that temptation to sin comes from three primary sources:  the world (culture around us), the flesh (our own desires) and the devil (Satan).  James also reminds us that sin is progressive – that when we choose to give in and go in the way of temptation it accelerates and leads us away from God.  So, what is the solution to our ongoing battle with temptation?  James (and the rest of the Bible) give us help in facing temptation and choosing the way of escape.
