對抗慾念

Are You Ready to Admit That You Can’t Conquer Lust on Your Own?

Lust is that vehement desire for inordinate pleasures of the flesh. This sin threatens to hit us all where we live, since we all obtain life through the act of sexual union, and our powerful, species-preserv­ing impulses toward sexual behaviors are under nearly constant assault from temptations to sins of lust in thoughts, desires, words, and deeds. To combat this powerful sin of the flesh will require far more than ordinary weapons As St John Climacus makes clear, we will have no chance of winning this battle if we plan to rely on our own strength. Rather, the first step we must take and never step away from is to admit that we cannot do it alone and to ask God to strengthen us with supernatural, spiritual weaponry.
