Christian Quote of the Week (or so!)

Temptation “[Satan’s device in temptation] is to present the bait and hide the hook; to present the golden cup, and hide the poison; to present the sweet, the pleasure, and the profit that may flow in upon the soul by yielding to sin, and hide from the soul the wrath and misery that will certainly follow… He promises them the former, but intends the latter, and so cheats them -- giving them an apple in exchange for a paradise, as he deals by thousands now-a-days.” -- Thomas Brooks (1608-1680) Related Bible Verse:  “Jesus said to them, ‘Pray that you will not fall into temptation’” (Luke 22:40).   Note: The work from which the above quote was taken, Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices, from The Complete Works of Thomas Brooks, vol. 1, is available as a PDF eBook at the Classic Christian Library, free of charge at: http://classicchristianlibrary.com/comp_s et_section.html If you would like to be sent the Christian Quote of the Week (when they are updated), via email, please send an email request to ssper@scripturestudies.com To review past Christian Quotes of the Week click here.
