I honestly believe, people are weak. We are easily tempted. And if no one was watching, we’d all break the rules.
Is it better to remove temptation entirely, or to fight it?
A friend put forth the argument that if you remove temptation entirely, then it is no contest, that you don’t get to see how strong you truly are. That by having the temptation in your hands that you control your destiny. Maybe you’ll see how strong you really are, OR that there it doesn’t really exist (that it is all in your mind).
Someone else argued that we as humans, are weak, that we shouldn’t have temptation, b/c we will take it, even if in imperils us. In knowing that we are weak, we can avoid it and make the ‘right’ decisions in life. Because your decision can&will affect those around you for better and for worse.
