"The Bible mentions three great
sources of temptation--the world, the flesh and Satan. The outward
world is so correlated to our susceptibilities as to excite them and
thus beget a temptation to self-indulgence. The flesh with its appetites
and passions clamor for gratification; and hence the flesh and the
outward world become temptations. Satan also presents his temptations
in every form which subtle malignity can devise."
