The twelfth in a series of 16 “blog bites” answering anticipated objections to material set forth in A Way of Escape, i.e., the twelfth in a series of 16 “blog bites” answering anticipated FAQs.
OBJECTION #12 (of 16)
Two are better than one ... For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, for he has no one to help him up ... Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10, 12).
How much more clearly can it be stated? God has provided a way of escape alright. And the train to Freedom City passes through Accountability Station. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 is the proof text for accountability-based escape.
NEW TESTAMENT TEACHING ON SPIRIT-LED ESCAPE
LOL! I could, of course, counter with the New Testament teaching found in Galatians 5:16-25 (and verse 16 in particular). The counter argument might go something like this:
I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh (Galatians 5:16).
How much more clearly can it be stated? God has provided a way of escape alright. And the train to Freedom City passes through Holy Spirit Station. Galatians 5:16 is the proof text for New Testament, Spirit-led escape.
Every individual is different. An accountability-based purity program might be best for some. While a wholly Spirit-powered option might be best for others.

A GAME-CHANGING BOOK HAS ARRIVED
In A Way of Escape, readers are reminded of New Testament teachings on Spirit-led escape from lusts of the flesh (Galatians 5:16). Readers learn how to step up the degree to which they “walk in the Spirit.” They learn how to build a library of Spirit-anointed, flesh-diffusing apps. Apps that are uniquely fitted to them, and their unique Spirit-filling triggers.
The still-struggling now have another option. The still-struggling now have fresh hope for discovering that long-sought-after way of escape from sin and temptation (I Corinthians 10:13). A way that—because it is wholly Spirit-powered—does not require enlisting the aid of an accountability partner or group. Truly, a game-changer!
