Lies from the enemy

Hey all, hope your new year is off to a great start. I'm definitely struggling today. One thing I'm noticing is how Satan's lies often use scripture in effort to cause us to stumble. For example:
"Its okay to masturbate/use porn... Jesus will forgive you!"
"Its okay to PMO you can't lose your salvation!"
"If you MO you will be able to focus on reading your bible. get rid of that distracting urge."

What lies has the enemy told you?

I know they're lies. I used to fall for them. Now I hear them and say "not today, satan!". I think it's good to get this out here. I have a feeling he uses the forgiveness/salvation lie a lot. "all your sins have been forgiven so what's one more?"

Stay strong my friend! I’m struggling too. Just took about a five minute cold shower, the last minute as cold as it could go. BTW it’s 19 degrees Fahrenheit here so you know the water was cold. Feel very relaxed right now!

You're a brave man craig! I'm a baby with those showers. I've tried a few (its in the 30s) here. Do you just jump in or gradually lower the temp?

Satan lies mostly by sending thoughts about pride and arrogance. These two are to worst. I heard that best weapon for fighting sin is to do little self talk. Self talk includes talking about everything bad about sin(and all passions), basically hating. We must use our anger on sins and bad habits not on people

I start at a temperature similar to a normal tap water temp on a fall day, start showering slowly lowering the temperature. Once the soap is off I get under the shower an turn it slow to very cold. I try to breathe slowly and relax. It feels good!

I love love cold showers! Haven't had a warm shower in a couple months at least..only cold don't allow any warmth haha. It's just fun and challenging to me but I get pleasure from it now. Don't plan on hot showers at all anymore but we'll see how that goes lol

Satan would tell me I deserve it. It's not my fault my wife doesn't want sex that much. It was purely selfish and it was making my relationship with my wife worse and that's part of his evil plan.

Yep heard those lies too. I was doing work around my house today and when I finished I heard that same lie. I remembered how in my early 20s id have a beer after work and somewhere that got replaced with pmo.

The single one i get told the most is " Go on, just this once, it will release the valve and give you release". And i fell for that one a lot in the past. Another one is " Just do it once per week to release tension" - and you can guess the result of that one!
