A temptation is an enticement to do wrong through a promise of pleasure which makes spiritually crippled. Temptation do not come from God but they come from Satan (Matthew 4:1), his evil angels (Ephesians 6:12) or from ourselves (Romans 13:14; Galatians 5:13).Temptations can be in the form of pride, lust and sexual desires, money, power, job, possessions, by immodest women, desiring to worship false God, desiring to live in sinful life


Temptations are opportunities that either it will strengthen us or corrupt us morally which lead us in bad path. When they come along, we are given a choice to either turn away with Godís help or surrender to the temptation. We must be spiritually minded to resist temptation, realizing that eternal spiritual values are more important that temporary earthly pleasure or gain. We should never fantasize about sinful thoughts. We can overcome temptation through Prayer, scripture reading, by resisting or avoiding it.

Here is what the bible says

Matt. 6:13; Mk. 14:38; Lk. 11:4 - "lead us not into temptation, but deliver from evil"

I Cor. 7:5 - "lest Satan tempt you because of lack of control"

I Cor. 10:13 - "no trial/temptation has overtaken you but as is common to man... God will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able... with the trial/temptation will provide the way of escape..."

Gal. 6:1 - "restore the one caught in a trespass...lest you too be tempted"

I Thess. 3:5 - "for fear that the tempter might have tempted you..."

I Tim. 6:9 - "those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare"

Heb. 2:18 - "He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted"

Heb. 4:15 - "tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin"

James 1:13,14 - "Let no one say when he is tempted, 'I am being tempted by God'; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt any one. But each one is tempted when he is seduced under his own desires."

II Pet. 2:9 - "the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from temptation"
