How then are we to avoid yielding to temptations: 1. In a society dominated by preoccupations with wealth, possessions, acquisitions, greed, appearances, etc. --- are we to withdraw from being near wealth, possessions, stores, etc? 2. In a society dominated by images suggesting that premature sexual pleasures are generally readily available --- in the absence of True-Lovers who are committed to helping young people become True-Lovers who truly are involved in meaningful/pleasurable sexual relationships --- there are always domineering dishonest "lovers" willing to take advantage of immature young people --- seducing them into dysfunctional intimacies, sexuality, and domineering relationships --- which lead tragically to: alienation, estrangement, excommunications, disintegrations, etc. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
