ERLC | 4 biblical truths to help fight sexual temptation
Christians will be tempted throughout the course of their life Matt. The following truths represent a survey of biblical steps to help those who struggle with temptations to sexual sins:. The marriage relationship of a husband and a wife is fundamentally a covenantal relationship. Two become one, both physiologically and emotionally. Sex originates in this covenantal context, consummating the verbal commitment of husband and wife in a complementary physical union.
In other words, a desire for anything sinful. See James Here he talks about how to get complete victory over all impure thoughts and become free from sexual immorality and all impurity. I knew that entertaining impure thoughts was sin and I really had a longing to be free from my youthful lusts, but the way to do this was never clear for me. I was looking for a way out but ended up falling a lot and getting trapped in a horrible cycle where I would try to fight but always came back to my sin in the end.
What does the Bible say about? No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
