From Genesis 3 and Matthew 4 when Satan tempted Adam & Eve (who failed) and Jesus (who succeeded!):

1) You can do anything you feel like doing! Obey your appetites!

2) You will not have any consequences for your selfish choices!

3) You are your own god and you do not have to answer to anyone!

Thankfully, Jesus answered each temptation with the Word of God and did not fail like Adam and Eve.

If Jesus combatted Satan with the Word of God, how much more do we need to know and use God’s Word to overcome the enemy?
