Soul Fighting

I warn you to keep away from evil desires because they fight against your very souls. 1 Peter 2:11 (NLT)

So much for ‘victimless’ sins. No matter the impact on others, whenever you sin, you’re a victim.

Of course, Satan hides that card very nicely.

‘Rebellion’ is fighting against the man, not yourself. Sexual sin is about pleasure. Pride is disguised as building self-esteem.

But every blow for your self-esteem that is not based on your relationship to God is a hammer to your soul. Fighting the man gives you the black eye. And the pleasure of sexual sin—whether private or public—never measures up to the pain.
