Do We Have a Choice Whether To Sin or Not?
Doing or saying the right things are not always an easy thing to do. A person is either going to be ruled by their flesh or by their born again spirit. "For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritully minded is life and peace (Rom. 8:6). That is why the Bible says "Submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you (James 4:7, New King James), and "Be self controlled and watchful because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom the may devour (verse8). "Resist him, steadfast in the faith; knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world" (verse9). In other words no one is exempt from Satan attacks, but can counter them by saying what Jesus said “Away with you, Satan”(Math. 4:10). So we do have a choice.
