Great article that I read this weekend based on the book called, "The Bait of Satan." John Bevere has some books that are destined to be classics and this is definitely one of them. I read this book a few years ago and I think you'll find the article to be challenging and probably convicting. Enjoy and don't take the bait!

Jesus made it very clear that it is impossible to live in this world and not have the opportunity to become offended (see Luke 17:1). If you breathe air and walk this earth, you will have a chance to become offended—guaranteed. Therefore, it is important for us to be prepared and armed, for our response to offense determines our future. click here to read more
