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.
1 Corinthians 10:13
A test becomes a temptation when we internalize it. The Greek term refers to a challenge that is neither good nor bad. The Garden’s fruit dangled before Adam and Eve daily. But when they began listening to the serpent and contemplating their own perversion of God’s good creation, the Tree of Life became temptation to them. God’s promise is that He knows your limits. He sees inside you, and won’t allow you to be pressed to the breaking point, if you’re in covenant with Him. God tempts no one with evil (James 1:13). If testing becomes temptation we can overcome it by setting our minds on things above (Colossians 3:2).

“What happened to America?” How did the moral compass of our nation began to drift? It was when the American people began to believe some lies. If we hear a lie often enough and regularly enough from so many different arenas; we begin to believe it. That’s why Dr. Ed Young has taken the major step of preaching a candid 3-message series that lays bare the lies that American society… and even American believers… have come to accept as truth. Lies about morality, the role of the church, the role of government, the sanctity of life, and more.
As Dr. Young shows in this series, there are steps every believer can take to reestablish God’s truth in their home and community—steps we must take to rebuild a moral foundation upon which our nation can stand and flourish!
