thank you for the helpful verses, i read them all. thank you for reminding me to flee, as that is one of the few things i'm able to do when i separate myself from whatever is tempting me. those verses also say to follow after the good things, like faith, charity, and peace. now, perhaps i have something to focus my energy in whenever i'm tempted. i just need to find an immediate outlet for my mind to keep me from sinning. sort of like behavioral science. do you substitute some type of behaviour when you are tempted?
