Christian men are in the midst of a life-long process. They're being transformed by the renewing of their minds, and through the power of the Holy Spirit, they're crucifying the sinful nature with its passions and desires.
But the world, the flesh, and the devil go to great lengths to thwart the process. Our culture is obsessed with sex. Pornography, declining morals, pervasive visual stimulation, rampant divorce, and epidemic adultery. They all reflect ungodly passions. And inflame impure thoughts.
In this six-week study you'll learn that God has provided everything you need to resist temptation. Through the examples of men in Scripture-those who fell into sin and those who stood firm-you'll find hope for controlling your passions. You' ll learn how to choose the path of purity. And you'll find assurance that through the power of the Holy Spirit and God's Word, you can escape the corruption of this world and one day stand before God blameless and pure.
"I was at the Precept conference here in Columbia, and saw this 40-minute study for the first time: "A Man's Strategy for Conquering Temptation", and thought that this would be ideal for the Prison Fellowship 'Stand In the Gap' group that I am in. It has really been used of the Lord. The ex-prisoner in our group has said that this was exactly what he needed, and has been using this with other guys that he knows. He said "This is great. I have done other studies where the men all pretended that they didn't struggle with temptation, but I feel that I can be real and admit my temptation and deal with it because the other guys are real with me." All of us have been impacted by this study (after all, we are men). I have bought extra books for the expanding scope of this study. There are four of us, and we are taking two weeks per chapter because the scriptures and the questions generate so much discussion. With a smaller group like this, it lends itself to dealing with specific/personal temptations rather than 'hiding' in a larger class. Kudos to Bob Vereen for writing this very needful study." ~ Andy
