8. Sin and Temptation
This section of the course is about sin, temptation, and where it comes from.
Sin is doing something which is morally wrong. We sin because we are tempted to sin, and our temptation comes from within us. We are also tempted by the Devil. This implies that the devil is not what is envisaged in popular culture, but that it is a part of human nature. The Bible gives a picture of the devil which will probably surprise you.
