As a Christian, I’ve come to realize that being tempted is like dating. Yes, I said that! In fact let me repeat “being tempted as a Christian is like dating”. Now let me explain what I mean.
Let’s look at the dating analogy. Have you ever noticed that a man’s approach varies based on the type of female he perceives he is dealing with? If he believes you are a sketel, he will make a derogatory remark. If he thinks you are a lady, he may even develop an accent. This is because he realizes that the presentation of his package will determine if he gets the reward of your attention. When that man catches your attention, he starts out small. He may ask for your phone number or even a date. The more you agree to, the more the stakes raise until you find yourself sleeping with him or married.
