Satan's Tactics To Tempt People To Sin

Satan managed to get Eve to give in to LUST - the physical and mental desires for things to satisfy us in place of God himself.

• THE LUST OF THE FLESH (physical appetites) She took and ate the apple

• THE LUST OF THE EYES (desire for things/materialism)
   The fruit looked so fresh and delicious

• THE BOASTFUL PRIDE OF LIFE (pride in our achievements)
   It would make her so wise

Satan Uses The Same Tactics Today

To lure people into sin today, satan   -

•  TEMPTS people to REBEL AGAINST GOD'S INSTRUCTIONS 
     eg  to seek their security, self-worth & significance other than in God

•  MAKES REBELLION AGAINST GOD LOOK ATTRACTIVE AND HARMLESS  
     eg by tempting people with glossy adverts to drink to excess
