B. The Source of Temptations 1:13-18
Jam 1:13Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:
Jam 1:14But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
Jam 1:15Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
Jam 1:16Do not err, my beloved brethren.
Jam 1:17Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
Jam 1:18Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
