Winning the War Within by Charles F. StanleyA few moments of pleasure, a few dollars to gain?what can it hurt?
In Winning the War Within, Dr. Charles Stanley talks about temptation, the enticements that trip us up, the protections God provides to help us stay clear of Satans traps, and the escape route God makes available if we go too far.
Winning the War Within is a Bible-based examination of relevant questions: Whats the problem? Whos to blame? How can we defend ourselves? How can we escape? What happens if we fall?
Clarifying the distinction between a test or trial?which may come from God?and a temptation?which never comes from God, Dr. Stanley explains Gods solutions for coping with trials, triumphing over temptations, and recognizing the diffrence.
As long as you are on this earth in its present condition, you will be faced with temptation. The more spiritual you become, the more of a target you become. As your spiritual maturity and responsiblility increase, so must your sensitivity to and dependence on the Holy Spirit. ?Charles Stanley
