The United States is being devastated by the wildfires of immorality, pastor, conference speaker and award-winning author Greg Laurie writes in a World Net Daily column. “[H]omes are being devastated. Families are being devastated. And unless we take precautions, we could be the next victims of the fires of lust, passion and immorality.”
Many Christians have a false sense of security—thinking that a particular sin cannot touch them. But that very presumption is a display of pride that can set someone up for a fall.
Samson was one of those who thought he was immune from temptation.
“In the Old Testament, we read that he killed a thousand of Israel’s enemies, the Philistines, with the jawbone of a donkey. In Samson’s mind, what was one woman going to do to him?” writes Laurie, who is senior pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California, and Harvest Orange County in Irvine, California. “But Delilah (whose name, by the way, means ‘delicate’) began to break down Samson’s resolve and resistance until finally he confessed to her what the secret of his supernatural strength was. If only he could have come to his senses and realized that he was falling into a trap.”
