Temptations.

Not much is spoken about the devil these days. When’s the last time you heard speaking of him in a sermon on Sunday?

His job description is easy: keep people away from God.

And by keeping silent about him, is not the church unwittingly complicit in the devil’s attempts to make us believe he does not really exist?

Our world is full of temptations to lure us away from God and all it takes is a slight diversion of attention, a momentary loss of focus, and we can so easily drift away.

Jesus warned us about this, for He too was tempted, several times. He prayed to His Father as we should too, using His words:

“And lead us not into temptation … but deliver us from evil.”

  1. How right you are!

    The priests should warn us more about hell - they should speak up more and not be afraid of hurting someone's sensibilities.

    Jesus said: Let your words be yes for yes and no for no ...

  2. Hi Gabriella,

    The Church (priests) should not be afraid to speak out. As you quite rightly say in your Blog today.

  3. Great topic! Interesting sometimes the temptations that lure us away from God are those things that we think we are doing for Him. Temptation doesn't always appear evil.
