It was Owen's earnest regard that his readers should be brought into a condition of safety against the wiles of the devil, to break the force of his warnings and entreaties by ingenious speculations and irrelevant learning. Not merely in the warm appeals interspersed with his expositions, but in the patient care with which no nook of the heart is left unsearched, does the deep solicitude of Owen for the spiritual welfare of his readers appear. To one who reads the treatise in the spirit with which the author wrote it, --simply that he may judge his own heart, and know what temptation means, and be fully on his guard against it

In Christian theology, the teaching that Christ possessed both a human and divine will is central to the doctrine of two natures, but it also represents a logical paradox, raising questions about how a person can be both impeccable and subject to temptation. This volume explores these questions through an analytic theology approach, bringing together 15 original papers that explore the implications of a strong libertarian concept of free will for Christology. With perspectives from systematic theologians, philosophers, and biblical scholars, several chapters also offer a comparative theology approach, examining the concept of impeccability in the Muslim tradition. Therefore, this volume will be of interest to scholars and graduate students working in analytic theology, biblical scholarship, systematic theology, and Christian-Islamic dialogue.

This first tome treats the German philosophical influences on Kierkegaard. The dependence of Danish philosophy on German philosophy is beyond question. In a book review in his Hegelian journal Perseus, the poet, playwright and critic, Johan Ludvig Heiberg (1791-1869) laments the sad state of philosophy in Denmark, while lauding German speculative philosophy. Moreover, Kierkegaard's lifelong enemy, the theologian Hans Lassen Martensen (1808-84) claims without exaggeration that the Danish systems of philosophy can be regarded as the disjecta membra of earlier German systems. All of the major German idealist philosophers made an impact in Denmark: Kant, Fichte, Schelling, and most significantly, Hegel. Kierkegaard was widely read in the German philosophical literature, which he made use of in countless ways throughout his authorship.

The Nature Danger and Cure of Temptation

In this masterful treatise on temptation, Capel explains that God’s honor is on the line, and what will Christians do to uphold his honor amidst those temptations? Will they give in easily, or will they fight? Do they know how to fight? Are they successful in their fight? How do they know? Capel explains the substance of a temptation (what it is), what it means that one is drawn aside into temptation, what being enticed to sin means, and what it means to be tempted to lust (lust being a hinge for all temptation). He will show how temptations come from the world, the flesh and the devil. He gives general rules for dealing with temptations, as well as specific remedies to fight against them. He is particularly keen on dissecting the way Christians ought to resist all temptations to sin, and what the order of resisting is in doing so. He shows that no temptations can be won over without the power of Christ through the Spirit, and how that work is accomplished in God’s people. A most excellent section to this treatise is Capel’s vivid depiction of how one sin (which a Christian falls into by a powerful temptation) will give way to other sins. How deep-buried sins (not regularly seen) are actually the foundation of other temptations to sin which the Christian looks to cast off, but cannot, until the original deep-rooted sin is cast out first. That section is worth its weight in gold for the Christian who desires to live victoriously against all sin for the glory of Jesus Christ. This work is not a scan or facsimile, has been carefully transcribed by hand being made easy to read in modern English, and has an active table of contents for electronic versions.

Lead Us Not Into Temptation is a spiritual book as given to me by God. This book is different from other spiritual books in that it connects man with his sole link to God and that is through his own soul. Regardless of one’s religion or persuasion, this book is for all people to find their way back to God. For secularism, religion and intellectualism have failed miserably in bringing true peace and love into this world, be it in the past, our present and probably in our future also. Jesus once said, “truly, truly you must be born again of the spirit. For that which is of water is water (the body), and that which is of spirit is spirit. For the Father is spirit and for us to worship Him we must worship in spirit and in truth.” This is a universal law, the same for all people all over the world, regardless of their religious beliefs. For we all worship the same one God, and He must be worshipped in spirit and in truth. The purpose of this book is to help people change from their secular life to a spiritual life and to develop a closer walk with God in their daily lives. By which we then begin to worship God the Father in spirit and in truth. This is the one pathway never chosen by man and is the pathway to peace on earth and good will towards all men. It is the pathway to the salvation for all mankind. Part One: Lead Us Not Into Temptation explores the history of man back to the Garden of Eden and the first temptation where man falls from grace. Man after that incident embarks on a journey of secularism, worldliness and materiality, which only separates him more and more from God. Although man has had the opportunity to live in the time of the great prophets of God and with Jesus himself, he has still maintained a steady course in his secular/worldly lifestyle constantly refusing to follow the spiritual path of God. This stubbornness of man has brought him to where we find our world today, in the grips of a huge recession and probably a depression, and world tensions and terrorism threatening the peace of the world. Part Two: Deliver Us From Evil, teaches how one can develop a life of spirituality and redemption from both God and from oneself. I begin with the prophecies of God as given to us in the Holy Bible and in the Bible codes. I explain how these prophecies line up with our generation living on Earth right now and are 100% accurate and have all been fulfilled to date. They are God’s warning to us that we cannot go on living worldly/secularly lives for we are reaching the end of the road: the End Times as predicted in the bible. It is a warning meaning we can change the future from doom and gloom to eternal bliss, but it is up to each of us. That unless we are willing to make some very fundamental changes in our lives towards one another and to God, we won’t survive as a civilization That without faith, hope and love in God we are doomed to repeat our mistakes. I teach the power of prayer and how that through prayer with God, one will find the answer and changes for their lives. I show how a prayer life is the only link we have to God the Father. Through daily prayer, one will begin the process of recreating a life of spirituality. I teach the principles of a spiritual life and the fruits of God’s Holy Spirit. How God works the fruits into your life changing you from your former self (imperfections and dislikes) into the new person filled with the wonderful fruits of God’s Holy Spirit. I explain that the key of life is love for without love there could be no God, no universe, no us. This book is for all people of all races, all religions to find the cure to life that has escaped them all through the years. It will unite the reader to a one to one relation with God and a healing and rebirth for their souls.

How many times have you tried to change a behavior only to find yourself doing the same thing again? Do these phrases sound familiar? "There I go again!" "I've had this struggle for years, and I just can't seem to win." "I do okay for awhile, but then I get caught in the same old sin." It"s easy to be discouraged when we fall into the same old sins, but God, in the Bible, offers hope to repeat offenders. Timothy S. Lane, a pastor, counselor, father, and husband helps you fight the daily, small battles with temptation by looking at the desires that underlie your behaviors, the different stages of temptation, and how honestly going to Christ in repentance and faith will change your desire life. You will learn that you and your sin are no match for God's goodness, power, and grace.

How can we guard ourselves against becoming trapped and overcome by our besetting temptations? John Owen (1616-1683) shows how watching and praying before entering into temptation is key. Jesus gave this command to the disciples on the night he was betrayed (Matt 26:14). This book provides practical suggestions for this work, but it also emphasizes our utter dependence on God and the power of the gospel to keep us from the "hour of temptation." This book was originally published in 1658 as Of Temptation: The Nature and Power of it, The Danger of entering into it, and The Means of preventing that Danger with A Resolution of sundry Cases thereunto belonging. This edition attempts to make Owen's writing more accessible to modern readers. It includes the following updates: Complete and carefully updated text. Sentence-level rewriting and rewording for clarity. Modern English sentence structure. Modern English vocabulary. Updated organization and headings. English Standard Version (ESV) scripture references. Scripture quotations in footnotes. Active table of contents.
