Stone Soup for Five: How Satan Encourages Us To Sin: Method One

How Satan Encourages Us To Sin: Method One

We're ready to jump in to this series of blog posts working through the book Precious Remedies Against Satan's Devices by Puritan Thomas Brooks.  You can read along in the book with me with a free digital copy here, or purchase a paper copy here.

Today, let's look at the first way Satan encourages us to sin:  by presenting the bait and hiding the hook.

  3. What was the temptation (bait)?
  4. What was the hook (sin)?
  5. How would that situation have been different if you had used one of the remedies above?
  6. Is Satan currently using this same method with you right now?  If so, how?
