Overview

Words of Caution for Those Who Think They're Beyond Temptation

Too many Christians, especially those in ministry, believe they are untouchable--that 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 person--until 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 weakness--and that no one is beyond God's redeeming love.

Outstanding! In this bare all book, Brittany Rust takes us on a courageous journey through the myth that you’re too faithful to fall. She asks the question, “how to can you flourish by admitting weakness?” Brittany gracefully and biblically argues that failure to acknowledge personal vulnerabilities creates a blind spot in our lives. Along the way she explains the secrets on how to confront weakness, establish guardrails and claim adversity as a blessing. This book is a timeless treasure that speaks loudly to God redemptive plan playing out in all of us.
