Is it a weakness to quit cold turkey, avoid the situations altogether,go down another road to avoid seeing the bait? Does it take a stronger person to hang around the temptation and not be moved, or are we just fooling ourselves into thinking we are strong enough to deal with the allurement?
Mat 26:41 (NIV) “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.”
Gal 6:1 (Phi) Even if a man is detected in some sin, my brothers, the spiritual ones among you should quietly set him back on the right path, not with any feeling of superiority but being yourselves on guard against temptation.
1 Cor 10:13 (NIV) No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.
