Six Steps to Defeating Sexual Sin

Look at the Book

Jesus tells his disciples to be willing to tear out their eyes and cut off their members to avoid where unconfronted lust leads: hell (Matthew 5:29). But nobody spontaneously tears out his eye. There should be nothing passive in us when the lion of lust comes out of the bushes. We don’t lie down and wait for a miracle. By God’s grace, we must act the miracle.

Below is a six-step strategy (ANTHEM) to killing lust. John Piper has refined this biblical strategy through years of warfare. If you go deep with them, you will find that they are relevant for other sins like anger and self-pity and greed and fear.
