TEMPTATIO, ITS ATURE AD LIMITS.BY DAIEL MOORE, M.A.CHAPLAI I ORDIARY TO THE QUEE, ADVICAR OF HOLY TRIITY, PADDIGTO ;AUTHOR OK 'SUDAY MEDITATIOS,' ETC.* And now,Through all restraint broke loose, he wings his wayDirectly tow'rds the new created world.And man there placed ; with purpose to essayIf him by force he can destroy, or worse.By some false guile pervert ; and shall pervert,For man will hearken to his glozing lies.And easily transgress the sole command.Sole pledge of his obedience ; so will fall.He and his faithless progeny : whose fault ?Whose but his own ? Ingrate ! he had of meAll he could have : I made him just and right,Sufficient to have stood, though free to fall. 'Milton, Paradise Lost, book iii.* There is no calling so holy, no place so retired, wherethere are not temptations : and therefore we must be watch-ful, especially against the beginning of temptation : becausethen the enemy is easier overcome, when he is not sufferedto come in at the door of the soul, but is kept out, and re-sisted at his first knock.' — Thomas X Kempis, Imit. of Christybook I. ch. xiii.
 
PREFACE.The following pages contain the substanceof Lectures, delivered by the Author to hiscongregation, in the Lent of the present year.Prepared, as they were, without any thoughtof publication, they will probably fall short,both in point of fulness and arrangement,of what the title given to them might lead areader to expect. But, besides the want of leisure for a more complete discussion of thesubject, the writer felt it would be more inkeeping with the usual character of LentenMeditations, as well as more in accordancewith the wishes of those who asked for thepublication of the present course, to sendforth the Lectures, with only slight varia-tions from the form in which they weredelivered.Whitsuntide,June 1878.COTETS.LECTURE I.C|)e 9ut]^or of Cemptatuin.* He said unto them, An enemy hath done this.*
