John Piper Explains How Sin Gets Its Power

John Piper says that sin (lust for example) “gets its power by persuading me to believe that I will be happier if I follow it. The power of all temptation is the prospect that it will make me happier.” (Quoted in Putting Your Past Behind You, E. Lutzer, Here’s Life, 1990 p. 54)
