Fighting the Battle Against Temptation
MCC Online   -  

I’ve made a big deal out of the fact that Corinth was the home of the temple of Aphrodite, the goddess of love. And that had a HUGE influence on the morals of the city.

But I’ve also mentioned that it was a port city, so they had access to trade and tourism and became a place where different lines of thought and philosophy flowed through; all kinds of ideas from around the world about different gods to worship and how to live your life. As you can imagine their culture was filled with temptation. Just like ours.

This week we will be reminded of some “hard to hear” truths about temptation and some promises that God makes to His children about when temptation comes your way.
