One of my great privileges is teaching Systematic Theology at Columbia International University Seminary and School of Ministry (we have very large sweatshirts!). This semester I am teaching Systematic Theology 2 which covers the five areas of man, sin, salvation, the Holy Spirit, and the Church.
We are right now studying the doctrine of temptation and sin and are going through my book When Temptation Strikes. Over the next few blogs I want to address these two critical issues.
The two quotes above by Ian Thomas illustrate some of the issues we will be tackling over the next few weeks.
1. Why are we so reluctant to talk about temptation and sin in Christian circles?
2. If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, how has He dealt with your problem of sin . . . and sins?
