“There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”
King James Version (KJV)

The scriptures do not teach that God tempts us. Let God be true but every man a liar. This scripture taken in context means if we are enticed by our own desires, and are led by them into sin, God will provide a way out for us. He does not want us to sin, but reassures us that when we do, there is forgiveness for us through his Son our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.. We have died to sin, how can we live in it any longer?

To Tina, yes God will put more on you than you can bare, if you are not a Christian. If you are not a Christian, then it is entirely possible to have more than you can bare to be put on you. Even then God is waiting on the side lines for you to accept Jesus as your Savior, as way of escape.

what a reviving scripture! I think God is the only way out of any given terror.

No temptation or sin, can we always find a way of ESCAPE! I find I cant "always " find a way of escape, why is this? Would this be a normal weakness, as we all are sinners and fall short of the glory of God. Taking the scripture literally we could all be sin free! Blessings!!!

I interpret temptation also as trial or affliction.
It has become a life verse to me due to the many physical limitations I have. When God has closed a door he helps find the window of escape. It is a constant test that helps me to do good and be compassionate to others.

Jehovah God never forsakes us to the point of permitting us to come into situations that make it humanly impossible to do his will. By strenthening us to resist temptation, Jehovah makes the way out. God can fortify our faith and give us the spiritual strenth we need in order to maintain integrity.

Our preacher says that "God will not put on us more than we can bear"isn't in the bible.He(the preacher) says God will put on us more than we can bear so that we will continue to come to God and that if God didn't put more on us than we could bear,why would we need God.i don't get it.something isn't clear to me.help.

No matter how hard life can be for a believer in Jesus Christ, it should settle in our minds that, victory is ***ured when this verse, 1st Cor. 10:13 becomes our daily song.

Amen Timothy, So we do not have an excuse when we sin because God gives us a way to escape from that temptation so we wont sin. If you are blind or dont take heed to the way out then you are in trouble. You must stay strong in your spirit to see the signs that God gives us. Be ye Holy for our Lord God is Holy!!!!
Timothy Wayne George's comment on 2011-11-02 04:22:09:
Temptation has two meanings: as one is an enticement to do evil, and the other is to test one to do good. God in his mercy only test us to do good. While he allows Satan to entice us to do evil he sets a limit on it so that we are able to endure it.
