Testing and Temptations: A Guide to Sanctification

Our Walk in Christ Publishing

Narrated by Thomas Murosky

3 hr 23 min

Our America is one where many Christians do not live life like Christ nor do they read the Bible. The average American Christian is not engaged in service and gives less to the cause of Christ than they do for their entertainment. As part of the church, we need to be walking like Christ and encouraging others. Testing and Temptations will guide you through living for Christ in the midst of trials in your life.

We all experience many trials that can be either tests or temptations, but little regard is ever given to what these words mean. Have you ever thought about the concepts behind testing and temptations or what role they may play in your life?

While listening in on a sermon and constantly hearing the pastor fumble over test and tempt, the concept behind the book Testing and Temptations was born. In this book, we will examine the differences between tests and temptations and examine four key principles of Testing and Temptations:

• The Source of the Trial

• The Method the Trial Works in Us

• Where the Trial Leads Us

• The Intention behind the Trial

Once we understand how Testing and Temptations are applied in our lives, we will be in a key position to understand how we can leverage our trials in order to grow closer to Christ. Thomas Murosky outlines simple steps to grow closer to God and live a more holy life, dedicated to the service of God.

When Jesus was asked to sum up the whole huge leather Bible into one simple phrase, he actually gave us two commandments. But modern evangelicals have short attention spans and only heard that we should love our neighbor. Christians everywhere have bought ineffective refrigerator magnets and bumper stickers, but in this book, we will give you better stickers and magnets because we finally found the perfect formula to honor God through block parties!


What would happen if every follower of Jesus twisted the Great Commandment into only loving our neighbors? Is it possible we can create world peace by ignoring that whole subjective 'loving God' part and throwing a block party instead?


The Art of Shallow Neighboring was penned in response to the sheer number of Christian books and organizations casting aside true Biblical study and discipleship for trendy business practices and scriptural mis-interpretations. While this book is intended to be a Christian comedy and parody, there is nothing funny about the way modern evangelicalism is treating the Bible. Hopefully this book will help people everywhere realize we need to stop looking for the shortcuts to God, and instead set down our digital devices, pull out that old dusty Bible, and begin true and deep study. I implore small groups to put aside video curricula and appoint a wise teacher of the Bible to teach, and for Churches to truly place the Bible above trendy business practices. Let us repent and return to God as they did in the time of Ezra, the priest.
