Paul warns the Corinthians to not get conceited and think that they are above committing sin,  “Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall.” (1 Corinthians 10:12)  But right after the warning he explains to them where they can look for help in staying away from sin.  “No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.” (1 Corinthians 10:13)  That promise continues to be true for us today.
