Temptation

Other Names:
Dependence on temptation
Tempters
Nature:

Temptation, the inducement to sin, occurs when man is confronted by a temporal good (recognized as such) which conflicts with his eternal good.

Claim:

Temptation is rampant in today's world, accounting for the strife and desperation which abound. With so many choices and with such high regard placed on materialism, many figures both public and private have allowed themselves to fall prey to temptation, often at the sacrifice of fellow men.

 

Counter Claim:

In one sense, temptation is man's lot; to escape all allurements of evil would require flight from this life.
