1 Corinthians 10:13: "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it."

In this section of our Onward Christian Soldiers discipleship class, we have been looking at some Bible verses that can be used to overcome the temptations that we face. Hiding the Word of God in our hearts and using it when we face temptation as Jesus did is the key to being victorious. Today, we are going to begin looking at specific temptations that are, as the Bible says, "common to man," and we are going to review what the Bible says about those sins so we can be aware of the dangers of those sins and so that we can hide those Scriptures in our hearts to use when we face these temptations.

Lord willing, over the next few weeks, we are going to go through a list of 12 temptations. (We will add more if the Lord leads us to do so.) This list comes from two sources -- one ancient and one modern. The first source is a list that was developed by monks in the early church called "the seven deadly sins" or the "cardinal sins." The second source is a Barna survey from 2011 which tracked the top temptations Americans admitted to struggling with.
