Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial for, when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life which God has promised to those who love Him.  Let no one say, when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil and He Himself tempts on one.  But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire.  Then desire, when it has conceived, gives birth to sin, and sin, when it is fully grown, brings forth death.  (James 1.12-15)
