WHEN TEMPTATIONS ENTICE US: Gaining the Victory Over Human Weakness

1 Corinthians 10:13 Updated American Standard Version (UASV)
13 No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.

As promised in the Bible, how may God “provide the way of escape” of temptations and trials for us? How are we to understand what God promises with regard to our personal limitations in the face of trials and temptations?

The Certainty of Your Christian Faith

We need to give honor to God by the firmness with which we believe his promises. May our conduct be such as to honor God; that is, to show our conviction that God was worthy of implicit confidence and trust. In this way, we will believe in the promises of God, so as to do honor to him. Our faithful actions will bear testimony to him that he is worthy of confidence. We to will become witnesses in his favor; and furnish to our fellow-men evidence that God has a claim on the authority and trust of mankind.

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE REALLY TEACH: Are Faith and Reason Incompatible?

“FAITH is a negation of reason,” writes British philosopher A. C. Grayling.

“The relation of faith to reason is of utmost importance for the thinking believer. The problem of how to combine these aspects of personhood has existed from the earliest apologists. Justin Martyr, Clement of Alexandria, and Tertullian all struggled.” – Norman L. Geisler

As you read this article, take note of how true faith and reason are compatible.
