Are You Pro-Choice? God Is! Purpose Driven Life Chapt. 26
Posted by infinitygoods on March 8, 2008
“We are tempted when we are drawn away and trapped by our own evil desires. Then our evil desires conceive and give birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death. Do not be deceived, my dear friends!”
No, this post is not about abortion. I just couldn’t resist the temptation to tease you with that headline! 🙂 Now that I have your attention: God is pro-choice! He gives us the choice between good and evil; to sin or not to sin; to obey or to disobey. He does not force us to do anything. He gives us complete free will. We are not puppets on a string. We are not programed robots.
Each time we are tempted it shows Satan hates our faith. He wants to destroy our faith and he wants to destroy us. The sin is not ours when we are tempted, it is his. He is the one doing the tempting. He is the one who is sinning in perpetuity by loving himself more than God and by trying every trick to destroy our souls.
Rick Warren asks us when are we most tempted? Where are we most tempted?
Think of Satan as the most vile allergy and avoid all triggers like the plague. Then, always ask God for His help. He is always there ready to protect us. It is our choice to ask for help or to sin.
