The Devil's Top Ten Temptation Targets - Nathan Rages

1Cor. 10:6-12 6 Now these things happened as examples for us, so that we would not crave evil things as they also craved. 7 Do not be idolaters, as some of them were; ... 8 Nor let us act immorally, as some of them did, ... 9 Nor let us try the Lord, as some of them did, ... 10 Nor grumble, as some of them did, ... 11 Now these things happened to them as an example, and they were written for our instruction, upon whom the ends of the ages have come. 12 Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed that he does not fall. 

In this, the second part of our studies on the Devil's schemes (per Eph. 6:11​ and 2Cor 2:11​), we consider the specific sin areas in which we're most likely to be attacked.  This Top Ten list is based on a review of the areas in which the "good" characters in the Bible were most often tempted and/or fell into sin. 

1. False teaching.
2. Sexual immorality.
3. Fear of man.
4. Fear of circumstances.
5. Discontentment.
6. Interpersonal conflicts.
7. Rebellion.
8. Lukewarmness.
9. Loving the world.
10. Pride.
