Words of Caution for Those Who Think They're Beyond Temptation
Too many Christians, especially those in ministry, believe they are untouchablethat they're too faithful to fall or too spiritual to give in to temptation. They deny any sort of weakness, fail to draw proper boundaries, and end up doing the very things they swore they'd never do.
Pastor and author Brittany Rust was one such personuntil she found herself in the middle of moral failure and a church-wide scandal. Bewildered, humiliated, and ashamed, she thought she was beyond redemption. But God's grace met her on the ground, and here she shares what she's learned through her painful journey. She unravels the myth of being untouchable, showing how we start to believe the lie, and how we can protect ourselves from temptation. Ultimately she shows that to truly flourish in life, you must be willing to admit weaknessand that no one is beyond God's redeeming love.
