it is problematic to think that life gave birth to death and death has lived its life haunted by the need to hunt down life. I could go on: roaming my mind for evidence that death is alive and wishes to be the only form of life...scratch that of existence but that’s not the focus or emphasis, here.
Can we run away from temptations? Yes, but we shouldn't because temptations help us tell our proximity to truth, our age in the reprise of faith, our inner state to GOD, our remote state that we are ready to be used by GOD – upon completion; they tell the enemy to be clear because nothing they do can derail us and nothing new can impale our thinking which is set on GOD.
Heck! Who would want a saviour who has no idea of what you should be saved from; who can take away the hurt, by helping, unless they know what the hurt is? The Man – JESUS knows!
Needless to say, to distort our moral standard, the influence must establish a fault in the source of all morality. To get humanity to be immoral, humanity needs to see GOD as unjust – and wrongly so – only then can humanity embrace immorality as though it were a juicy paradise of immortality.
My body needs to be saved, my body is not the saviour of itself. Only those who need no salvation can save, only THE ONE who gives salvation is the saviour of the body. If the body needs salvation, it cannot give salvation.
The warm correction of a father, the storm of affection from the mother. The presence of food in the stomach, being good to leave a mark, not crude even in lack.
Is the righteous man in no need for salvation? What is his righteousness and how much does it cost? Is it powerful enough to save him? Who determines him righteous? What is righteousness in man?
"I think, that's where true redemption is, to take away everything that covers our vulnerability before him. I think GOD wants us to come naked before Him so he can cloth us with light, he wants us to come bleeding before him so he can heal us with love" I said and wondered what I even meant.
Here’s the gist. If your desire doesn't lead you to GOD, purity and the essence of the truth, then you need to pull the plug and have a surgical session on the desire. Cut it open and fix this and that before using. All desires can be re-routed to do good.
