Mankind’s thought super-power
Prone to both good or evil
For with it comes temptation
How subtle is deception
This testing of our will
Amplifies weakness or brute strength
To fight for good or ill
How can we battle purely
What thought perceives as ‘nice’?
Prayer is our single sure defense
Against temptation’s vice
For thought, the lone precursor
To everything we do
Proves through our action who we serve
In places hid from view
...and mankind’s super-power
Thought is the doorway whereby we
Are led into temptation
How can we guard the barracks
Immune to force of limb?
The Word of God is faultless
and fills our thoughts with Him

What a great undertaking imagination is...
soon it reveals its colors in wisdom or foolishness
Imagination is a great thing. Every astonishing invention was the fruit of someone’s imagination, but imagination is also the first-fruit of temptation!
No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. 1 Cor. 10:13
