Thomas Brooks

“Satan tempts us to not fear sin, so that we will not keep a safe distance from it.”

On Thomas Brooks (d.1680):  "Brooks characterized this strategy as 'making the soul bold to venture upon the occasions of sin.' Like many of the devil's lies, it distorts a truth, namely that temptation is not sin. The Christian who is tempted only sins when he surrenders to the temptation; being outwardly tempted is not a sin.
