Rid the Temptation or Fight the Flesh?

During college, I remember hearing a story about a guy who threw away his computer.

He was so serious about sexual purity, he decided to get rid of his greatest temptation to give in.

I remember thinking that was pretty stupid.

Not the desire for purity of course. That was admirable.

But, I remember wondering whether getting rid of the temptation altogether was the same thing as overcoming it?


For, I can chain you to a wall in order to prevent you from making foolish decisions.

But, is that the end-game?

Do we rid the temptation or learn to overcome the flesh altogether?
