Advises teenagers on overcoming temptation, whether it be overeating on cookies, cheating on a test, or killing a policeman.
If The Devil "Made" You Do It, You Blew It! develops a theme of tremendous importance for today's teens: How to recognize and overcome temptation. Surrounded by a permissive culture fueled by satanic sources and values, teens are constantly bombarded with messages that say:- "You'll never win over temptation!"- "Do your own thing-it doesn't matter."- "If it feels good, it must be right."- "You're not hurting anybody. Go ahead."- "God will forgive you this once."Reestablishing the truth that God faithfully provides a way of escape from temptation is no small task. Lorraine Peterson's purpose is to:- Alert young people to the seriousness of temptation.- Show them how to deal with it biblically.- Prove that temptation can be used as a tool to strengthen, not defeat, faith.
Insightful devotional readings that focus on teens overcoming temptation biblically.
