Bible Commentary for James 1:14

Wesley's Notes for James 1:14


1:14 Every man is tempted, when - In the beginning of the temptation. He is drawn away - Drawn out of God, his strong refuge. By his own desire - We are therefore to look for the cause of every sin, in, not out of ourselves. Even the injections of the devil cannot hurt before we make them our own. And every one has desires arising from his own constitution, tempers, habits, and way of life. And enticed - In the progress of the temptation, catching at the bait: so the original word signifies.

Discussion for James 1:14

  • Heath on James 1:14
    Lust....read Genesis 6:1 and 2.. Keep in mind we were created a little lower than the angels. Guilt can do more harm than the original sin Lust Paul... Solomon... NOBODY CAN TAKE EVERYTHOUGHT CAPTIVE ALL THE TIME.

    To Heath>A Christians forever home is in Heaven. If you are going to spend ETERNITY with Jesus, don't you want to get to know Him? What is he like? What He likes? He's the son of God, but he's human too. He had temptations but NEVER sinned. He understands the pits we frequently fall into. Just talk to Him. The Bible is where you will find out these things. Believe me, satan doesn't want you to read it. In the last days of earth, people will be starving for the Word of God (one of Jesus's names).
    Everybody goes thru this. We renew our minds in the Bible. Start with John & flip back to Matthew, Mark, Luke. I went through this too :) Turn off all media & music. Ask the Holy Spirit to help U
