Hi, thanks for considering my question.
My question is, let’s say that you want to perform a certain sin, say stealing, or masturbation, or the like, but you don’t It has gone past the urge, the initial idea to the place that you desire it, but are able to talk yourself out of it and keep yourself from it out of devotion to God.
What is the breakdown of the parts? You willed it but ____ kept you from it? Or the power of sin gave you the urge, ______ made you want it, but you didn’t will it, therefore didn’t do it? I need help with the compartmentalization of these faculties, and their terms.
Thanks so much!
