Bridge to Nowhere

Satan uses sin as a bridge to assault your interest in Christ.

I shall only add that the sin [Satan] tempts you…is not the thing he aims at; his design lies against your interest in the gospel. He would make [that] sin but a bridge to get over to a better ground [for him] to assault you as to your interest in Christ. He…will say today, “You may venture on sin, because you have an interest in Christ,” [but] will tomorrow tell you…that you have none because you have done so. – John Owen, Overcoming Sin and Temptation, 206
