In this Day and Age, it is almost impossible to avoid sexual temptations, it’s all around us, it’s unavoidable but the Bible says in (1 Corinthians 10:13) that God is faithful, and he will not let us be tempted beyond what we can bear. Though temptations are not avoidable, committing sexual immorality is, we must understand that we are destroying God’s temple when we commit any kind of sexual sin.
