Prayer by Verbal Bean

It has been an interesting read. Different perspective. Not too bad. But something jumped out that I take issue with. Verbal Bean stated that he believed Jesus was tempted to fornicate. I find the notion rather blasphemous.

I do not believe that being tempted in like manner means that Jesus was tempted with EVERY SPECIFIC THING that people deal with. If tempted to fornicate, was He tempted to steal? Lie? Kill?

Other than that, no real objections to VBís commentary. Iím bout half way through.

Why would he not be tempted to fornicate, steal, lie and kill?

There is this.

Heb.4

[15] For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

Do you think he was tempted with homosexuality?

All points


1John 2:16
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

Re: Prayer by Verbal Bean

“Adulterous spirits are like radar. If they’re in a person they’ll send a signal, and that signal will touch you.”

p. 124
——

I’d say other spirits do the same. Experienced it myself. Interesting way to describe it. I’ve described it like a signal going through me. Then to turn and look, and lo and behold...

homosexuality is not a natural sin like the others... Iíve never once been tempted with homosexuality. Itís repulsive to me and not natural. But I donít know one person that has not been tempted with letís say lying or hate and unless they were made to be a eunuch... you have to understand that just because he was tempted doesnít mean he desired. Obviously he was tempted when he was fasting but he never let it get to the point where it was sin.

Re: Prayer by Verbal Bean

I heard an older preacher, who knew Verbal Bean personally, who said that many of the men talking bout his books today would never had let VB in their pulpits. He was very offensive to those who did not believe in the spiritual realm.
