Using satan as adversary. But if it was God who did it (because he was the adversary) then why does it say in the book of James that God can’t tempt. If God can’t tempt, then it would be God (the adversary) it would have to be satan (the devil.) Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: (James 1:13 KJV) Reply Biblically, there are two kind of temptations: God tempts (tests) faith, but He doesn’t tempt people to do evil things. These are two different kind of temptations. It was David’s faith to His commandment (Exodus 30:11) that was tested. David failed that test. If you read the context; even Joab reminded David about this (2Sam. 24:3); but he ignored him. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
