"Temptation in itself is not sin; it is something we are bound to face simply by virtue of being human....temptation comes to me, suggesting a possible shortcut to the realization of my highest goal... when I yield to it, I have made lust a god, and the temptation itself becomes proof that it was only my own fear that prevented me from falling into the sin earlier....temptation is not something we can escape; in fact, it is essential to the well-rounded life of a person....God does not save us from tempations- He sustains us in the midst of them."
