Nibbling At Satan’s Golden Baits

Brooks “Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices

“. . . the deceitfulness of sin.” Hebrews 3:13

Sin is of a very deceitful and bewitching nature. It will kiss the soul, and look enticing to the soul–and yet betray the soul forever! It will with Delilah smile upon us–that it may betray us into the hands of the devil–as she did Samson into the hands of the Philistines. 

Tell the bewitched soul that sin is a viper that will certainly kill; that sin often kills secretly, insensibly, eternally–yet the bewitched soul cannot, and will not, cease from sin. 

A man bewitched with sin–had rather lose God, Christ, heaven, and his own soul–than part with his sin! Oh, therefore, forever take heed of playing with or nibbling at Satan’s golden baits!

  1. are you doing brister’s puritan challenge? this was one of the books on the list. so far it has been one of my top 2 favorites.

  2. No, unfortunately I am not. At the time when Brister started the Challenge I didn’t have a large cash flow going. Although I have been popping in on his blog to see the different things he has been writing about the Puritan Challenge. Of all the books that he has been talking about this is definitely one that I would want to pick up also.

    Which makes me think of this book. Have you read or do you know anything about “The Almost Christian Discovered” by Matthew Meade? I have seen it around and heard it recommended lately. What do you think?

  3. I am not familiar with that book. But after looking it up on Amazon I definitely want to check it out.
