• By not giving Satan any power. This means having humility and killing the ego, which Satan loves. Satan is powerless when deprived. Satan starves without food. Don't feed Satan and give more to God. There's always a fight and struggle when it comes to the dark side but that's part of the test. You can only do what you can do and remember that God loves - He doesn't hate.
  • Walk in the Spirit, the Holy Spirit of the Living God, and you will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. And use your God given weapons that are for fighting the devil and his demons, for pulling down thoughts that exalt themself against the knowledge of God.
  • How does Satan tempt man more than man tempts man? I see commercials regarding Sexual misconduct, support of destructive obsessions and over-indulgence & as far as I know Satan isn't selling these things but rather mankind is. I'd say if you want to fight the temptation to dig yourself a "hell" in the form of unhappiness, self-loathing, and obsession and you feel external influences guiding you in that direction then perhaps it's not what Satan is doing but rather where you're allowing external influences power over your own inborn ability to choose what you do and do not have in your life. The largest temptation mankind suffers from is that temptation to let other people make their decisions for them. A pointed example is the fact that a very small amount of people hold political or financial power yet in general the only real difference between them and another man is their ability to direct their own lives and that direction includes using their influence to hold power over other men. Most of us do not enjoy the world in but most of us do nothing to change it either. Although our "leaders" may be slandered for immorality, at least they are taking action to make the world their own. Temptations are abound, and although power-figures and icons are influences the ultimate deciding factor has nothing to due with the intensity of external influences but rather your ability to choose for yourself.
  • Fighting the temptations of "Satan" is done through denial of one's inner human nature. Personally, I think such a course leads to a horribly imbalanced psyche. I think it is much better to accept your nature and learn to seek what you want and need in a responsible, ethical manner.
  • Well If you cant beat them..Join them..!!. ( NO NO NO wrong answer) ha ha KIDDING ;) be strong, be wise, Knowing is half the battle, lots of good advise above me here, read well and choose wisely.
  • By not believing that there is a beastly man trying to sway you to do wrong.
  • through God.
  • Realise that if you don't you'll suffer for ALL ETERNITY? If you believe Satan is tempting you, then you also believe you'll suffer ETERNALLY if you don't get your act together : P God has made an in-built deterrence just for you! Such is his love! : P

      Scripture denies your comments... (Ecclesiastes 9:5, 6) For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing at all, nor do they have any more reward, because all memory of them is forgotten. 6 Also, their love and their hate and their jealousy have already perished, and they no longer have any share in what is done under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 9:10) Whatever your hand finds to do, do with all your might, for there is no work nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom in the Grave, where you are going. There is no ' ongoing' punishment here... our death pays for anything we did wrong... But then we have the resurrection...only then are we judged,,,not for what we did but for what we will do in the be obedient or not,
  • A good way to fight Satan is to realize that he is, in fact, not real.
    • pugwashjw65
      If what YOU say is true, then the Bible is lying... (Job 2:1) Afterward the day came when the sons of the true God entered to take their station before Jehovah, and Satan also entered among them to take his station before Jehovah. BUT IT ISN'T...
  • Start a medication like Haldol because if you believe there is an invisible figure like the devil tempting you to do things against your will you are crazy.
  • Deny yourself the things that you crave.
  • I feel that the people slamming you for believing in Satan need to get out. Regardless of whether or not you believe, he still signifies the existence of right and wrong. You know when something is wrong, so try and make the conscious decision to fight it.
  • There are no temptations. The human mind may take temptations into a situation between an angel and devil. My major idea: To me and how i have realized this is that there is no devil and angel going back at each other when you are so called tempted. What really happens at these times are the choices or paths that are revealed to you and how it is that you should choose. By choosing whatever it is that you think you are tempted to do, when it is only really your own choice, your action will have a response. What you choose will determine your future. Satan is truly real, but he sets only that of a bad example in which "humans" should not follow. We are the ones making temptations seem like temptations are real when it is really our own self and decision making moment. No temptations!
  • By NOT listening to Dr.Laura and also by NOT reading any of her books.
  • 1. spend more time with God, studying (and applying) His word 2. when Satan reminds you of your past, just remind him of his future 3. laugh at him, as Satan can endure anything but being mocked
  • I'm having lots of trouble. This ugly spook is right next to me. I try, but I can't get rid of him. He is "The Great Sneak." He makes you think, that his induced thoughts are your own. I go through periods of obsessive sexual thoughts. This is idiotic, because I am an old man. He is a coward. He won't show himself, but I know that he is here. I pray, but he still stays with me. Once in a while, it is obvious that he is here. I also believe that "HE-SHE" can physically show himself as either male or female. He searches my mind and knows my past experiences better than I do. This NITWIT will lose the battle with me. My heart is a good one. I have love, compassion, empathy and I try to be the best person, that I am able to. The best he can do is to direct me towards the internet, where I sometimes look for tits. I can't help it-I just love them. But I cant find pictures of just them. I have to wade through of all of the ugly porn. He has a firm hold on the net. FACIALS-The men , who take part in and produce this are "WOMEM HATERS" They too are influenced by this Spook. Does anyone think a woman really wants this done to her? She is used, because of her addiction to drugs. She may be a runaway, who was hurt by her family. She may be obedient to her PIMP, who she thinks cares about her. She may be tempted by the money that she will receive. Did you know that many-many of the girls taking part in porn are not really girls. They are transexuals with make believe pussies, that are as dry as a bone in Death Valley. LOOK AT THEIR FACES. Even though they are heavily made up, you will see that they are male faces. Plastic surgery can do wonders these days. But everything is MAKE BELIEVE. ANAL-Does anyone really believe that a woman wants something up her ass? Again those who produce and take part in this are WOMEN HATERS. The THEME ON THE INTERNET SEEMS TO BE THE DEGRADATION OF WOMEN. THAT IS EVIL. AND WHO, IS EVIL. THE UGLY SPOOK IS. UGLINESS JUST FOR THE SAKE OF HATRED. He has gotten a hold of the world with the net. Many of you won't believe all of this. You will think that this is all nonsense. LOOK AT THE STATE OF OUR WORLD. Think of Bosnia. Ethnic cleansing. PURE EVIL. Think of the killing, rape, starvation and AIDS in Africa. PURE EVIL. Think of the terrorists-Killing everyone they can. PURE EVIL. Think of late term abortion. Fully developed babies being torn to pieces during an abortion. Beautiful babies gone. PURE EVIL. Think of the constant crime in the US. Murder after Murder. PURE EVIL. When I grew up, women were honored and protected by men. If one cursed in front of a woman, he would likely be in a fight with all of her protectors. THE MEN OR BOYS, WHO HEARD IT. Those days were far far better than the way things are today. Now it's facials. Can you believe it? You believe that your mind is yours alone. That all of your thoughts and the things you do are yours alone. USE YOUR IMAGINATION. . Imagine that your life and the lives of all others are a collective dream. Dreamt somewhere else. we are all dreaming our lives in this existence. What if some thing evil were sitting next to you as you sleep. Saying things to you, that affect your life here. This is an imaginary way for you to understand temptation and how it can occur. We live as lone as we sleep in this other place. When, we wake, we must leave this dream. The only way out of this dream is to die. This keeps the collective dream realistic. A person can't just disappear from this life. THIS EXPLAINS HOW THERE CAN BE LIFE AFTER DEATH AND GOOD AND EVIL. BELIEVE ME! THE SPOOK IS HERE AND HAS AN EVIL INFLUENCE ON ALL OF US IN THIS WORLD AND LIFE. GET RID OF HIM.

  • 10: Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11: Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12: For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13: Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
  • The same way Jesus did. He quoted Scripture everytime that Satan tempted him. Matthew 4:4 .....It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Matthew 4:7 .....It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. Matthew 4:10 .....Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. The following verse says that the devil left him. If you're going to quote scripture you'll need to get very familiar with God's word and memorize some of it. Listen to preaching too. I'm not talking about back-scratching, ear-tickling, compromising, pussy-footing, penny-pinching, nickel-nipping, pink tea and lemonade preaching, but old fashioned, rock-ribbed, barnstorming, Hell-fire-and-damnation, window-rattling, shingle-pulling, fundamental Bible preaching.

      Did Jesus get involved in the politics of his day? No. People wanted to make him a King...and Jesus refused...and fled to the wilderness...
  • Unless one has Jesus Christ as Savior, you cannot fight against satan and his temptations.
  • He is an evil hamstie!!! He bite me again last night... Its our hamster - and he's evil!!! :D
  • Stop considering his words in the same way you stop thinking about pink elephants. Switch your thoughts to another topic.
  • Q: Who is Devil [=Satan]? (A: The one who keeps on asking "Why?", that's who!) Devil/Satan is nothing but an objective and enquiring human mind seeking knowledge & TRUTH. Only a human mind may be open to rational thought process[es], reason and logic; and willing to question “why”, prepared to challenge anything and everything under the sun including the sun itself! So the moment the first question ‘why’ pops into your conscious, you have become the “victim” of Devil, “possessed” even! But is that such a bad thing? Or, “WHY is being a “victim of Devil” a bad thing? See? It is that easy to ‘fall prey’ or ‘surrender oneself’ to The Devil! Unlike many competing Gods, there is only one Devil and from the beginning of time, and Devil is stronger! Devil has endured many gods single-handedly --just by being itself-- and apparently with great success. All god-men believe that Devil is still around, don’t they? Gods [through god-men] need ‘Devil’ to justify their own [and their respective god’s] pseudo-existence, but Devil needs no God, ‘Devil’ is self-sufficient! All Gods jealously compete with Devil for ‘betterness’, Devil couldn’t care less! Even all godmen admit: Devil is always happy, always smiling! His eyes have a lively glint! And like a true friend, the Devil does not expect anything in return: no obedience, loyalty, spiritual ritual, prayers, offerings or sacrifice! --other than the ‘virtual currency of your soul’, according to the religionists, of course. But is that such a bad thing? Or, “WHY is giving your ‘soul’ to Devil, ---or ‘keeping a mind open to doubt, rationality, reason and logic’-- bad? How can it harm you? So, who is your friend now?
  • I sic Glades night & the pips onto them!
  • ---------- i did for a long time but i gave in to it and it was the best i ever did

  • By not getting too close to what tempts me.
  • Get away while you still can.

  • by smoking...thats all i can do..i get tempted by something i smoke, i cry i smoke, i get mad i smoke. YUP!!
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Smoking isn't a biblical condemnation, although smoking condemns your body.
  • -Pray. -Stay away from such temptation. -Listen to a calming song. -Talk to someone. -Read an interesting book or magazine. -Watch a good movie. (Not porn) -Go outside for some "fresh" air. ("fresh" if you live in New York)
  • Temptations have short term pleasures with long term unhappy consequenses. You have to learn to be a long term thinker. This means seeing yourself as a person of integrity/fitness/love NOW. You have to realise that temptation when it raises its head is not ugly - it is mearly a thermometor of your emotions and where you are with the temptation you feel. I always beleive that fellowship with people of similar temptations but who also want to abstain is the best way too. happy resisting!
  • hiking
  • That takes a lot of discipline and you must realize that Satan is a lair! He comes in may shapes and forms and honestly he holds this world in his hands. There are so many people who do not believe in God so those are all souls he has won. Satan tempts even the Holiest of Men. I think you have to have faith and be strong willed in order to fight off Satan
  • Resist the devil and he will flee away!
  • Antipsychotic medication.
  • being obedient to the Bible's directives...
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Very true.
  • Be fixated on the presence of God within you.
  • Simple...As a child of Jesus Christ, Satan has no power over me.
  • I heard once if you are tempted you have opened the door somewhere in your mind. Close the door. Of course if all you can do is turn around and run...then turn around and run for your life. I did that once in the beginning and it worked perfectly.
  • Put on the whole Armor of God: Ephesians 6:11-18 King James Version (KJV) 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
  • Here is the solution. Accept the Word of God into your lifestyle. Once you do, God will write "His way of living" in your innermost being. Hebrews 10:16 "This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;"
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      A side note since we are not perfect: God will forgive any minor imperfections. 2 Corinthians 12:9 "And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
