Resisting Temptation in an Immoral Society


Christian Focus 1982

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Today, people are able to engage in choice in almost every aspect of their lives—choice is good; we look up to people who pursue their personal goals. The worship of choice enables people to pursue individual self-fulfillment as the main motivating force in their lives. Resisting temptation is not on their agenda.

The fallout in society is a higher level of crime, a lower standard of morality, abandonment of ethics at work and an increase in litigation, because failure in our lives must mean it's someone else's fault. The Church is also infiltrated—failing to resist temptation has led us to increasing divorce levels, scandal, and internal strife.

Colin Peckham's book is a practical guide to resisting temptation. We discover how temptation works, what places and times to avoid putting yourself into the danger zone, and how to escape, both practically and spiritually. He also supplies Scriptures to meditate on to defend ourselves during future trials.

Praise for the Print Edition

It sets the scene, describes temptation, warns against danger areas and danger times and has very practical, down-to-earth advice on how to escape these temptations both practically and spiritually. This reviewer does not know of any other book that gives such excellent consel, advice and warning that is, at the same time, biblically based, compassionate and practical.

—Spencer R. Cunnah & Mark A. Williams, Evangelical Magazine of Wales
