Eve’s temptation had nothing to do with sex which is not a shock to me. She was tempted to become morally autonomous, to make her own decisions about right and wrong. Adam, on the other hand, was not deceived by the serpent but seduced by the woman. Guys you know what that means. He put pleasing his wife before pleasing God. I’ll just take a wild guess and say that his sin was sexually motivated. The devil is not stupid and he knows man’s weakness and of course, he knew Eve’s also.

Guy’s the first thing he is going to do is try to convince you that you may as well give into sexual temptation because he is not going to relent in his tempting. If you don’t give in today, he will be back tomorrow. Actually, that depends on your resolve but you must remember that he lies. Secondly, he is in control of the world system and he is going to continue to bombard us with pictures and images because he knows that we are stimulated by what we see. He is going to use every media outlet available. Thirdly, he knows that he cannot stop marriage but he will work to create as many mis-marriages as possible. Fourth, he goes with the flow. Today, he is using the internet big time to promote porn. I like the internet; it has changed my world but I am afraid that Satan likes it as well but for a different reason.

When Lewis talks about the two women, the terrestrial and the venus, I think he is talking about a real woman [possibly your wife] and an imaginary woman [probably a 10] if you know what I mean. I am not in a position to say that he is either right or wrong. What I do know is that if a man pursues his unrealistic fantasies, he is going to end up disappointed and unhappy. Many a man has brought endless sorry to his life by thinking with something other than his brain. Always remember, sex outside of marriage is not an expression of love. You cannot have sex outside of marriage without it being destructive. There is no exception to this rule. It is what it is!
