Temptation Sin and Death
- DateNovember 1, 1998
God is not the tempter… Satan is. The temptation to do evil and break God’s laws comes only from the devil. He uses the lust of the flesh to entice us and deceive us. The temptation is not sin; even Jesus was truly tempted. It is only when temptation is acted upon that it becomes sin. And if not repented of and allowed to become a way of life, sin produces internal death.
