Spiritual integrity overcomes temptation

Christian Science teaches that we can resist temptations of all kinds by becoming conscious of what we really are as the sons and daughters of God. The man God created is spiritual, perfect, harmonious, honest, sincere, immortal, inviolable. These qualities, which constitute the very substance of man’s being, cannot limit us. On the contrary, they elevate, strengthen, and support us as we strive to follow the example of Christ Jesus in our daily lives.

God is the only Mind, the source of all the intelligence and motives of man. To be conscious of this is to understand that we have innate spiritual integrity that cannot be corrupted by sensualism, dishonesty, or any other moral weakness. Whatever temptation we seem to be facing, God furnishes us with the inspiration we need to maintain our self-control. We just need to be willing to trust and obey God.
