Page 409 - Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God : for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man : but every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
Page 269 - Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind...
Page 95 - I may be mighty through thee to pull down the strong holds of sin, to cast down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and to bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.

Page 409 - Let no Man fay when he is tempted, I am tempted of God, for God cannot be tempted with Evil, neither tempteth he any Man., but every Man is tempted when he is drawn away of his own Lufi, and enticed.

Page 253 - As concerning, therefore, the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one.
