Thomas Guthrie on Sin and Temptation

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Tuesday, July 19, 2016 at 5:30 AM

“Besides, does not the experience of all good men prove that sin is most easily crushed in the bud, in its beginnings?  Is it not safer to flee from temptation than to fight it?  Fight like a man when you cannot avoid the battle; but rather flee than fight.  Be afraid of temptation, avoid it, abhor it; and if caught by the enchantress, tear yourself from her encircling arms; throw her from you; seek safety in flight, your answer that of Joseph's chastity, Shall I do this great evil and sin against God?”

Thomas Guthrie
