You Don’t Need An Adamic Nature to Be Tempted

You don’t need an Adamic nature to be tempted.

Jesus wasn’t depraved, yet, as a human, he was tempted.

Eve (the first female human) wasn’t originally depraved, yet, at sinless Eden, she was tempted.

As an archangel in sin-free Heaven, Lucifer wasn’t depraved, yet he tempted himself and other angels with him.

You know why?

Being tempted is inherent in love: Love must be tried. No need for depravity.

“There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” (1 Corinthians 10:13, KJV)
