Defeating temptation the hard way

This is fantastic:

http://www.ccel.org/ccel/owen/temptation.toc.html

Don't read it if:
1. You think you have any strength of your own to withstand temptation;
2. You want to remain unchallenged;
3. You want a quick-and-easy way to defeat temptation, and aren't willing to take a thorough look at Biblical teaching.

Do read it if:
1. You recognize that apart from Christ you can do nothing, and that, if Abraham, David, and Peter fell, what chance do you have?
2. You're willing to be challenged and even scared by Biblical truth;
3. You take sin so seriously that you're willing to put much prayer and effort into understanding temptation and the nature of your own soul.

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this site.
It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's difficult to get that
"perfect balance" between user friendliness and appearance.
I must say you have done a awesome job with this.
Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Chrome.
Outstanding Blog!
