A practical biblical method to stop a sinful thought from becoming a sinful action
We are constantly bombarded with opportunities for sinful thinking. Our minds are battlefields where godly thinking is relentlessly attacked by believable lies and deceptive fantasies. The voice of Satan and the voice of the sinful self try to overwhelm the pure voice of God.
But there is hope--even for those who have repeatedly fallen into the cycle of sinful thinking. Using biblical models, historical figures, and real-life case studies, Taming Your Private Thoughts provides a biblically based process for getting the thought life under Christ’s control and avoiding the consequences of sin.
This is not just a book about positive thinking or denying the presence of sinful thoughts, nor does it offer quick fixes or easy formulas.
The book includes: * Honest examination of the problem of wrong thinking for men and women, young and old * Straight-forward case studies that demonstrate the consequences of sinful thinking * Biblical solutions for breaking vicious thought cycles and finding peace of mind * Discussion and reflection questions * An appendix of ScriptureAbout the Author:
