Songs about overcoming the flesh/temptations?

Post by Friday13th on Fri Aug 31, 2018 5:46 pm

Hey guys. I wanted to share some good songs with some friends about overcoming your flesh and temptations, so I was hoping you guys can help me out? I'm thinking fairly broad in terms of perspective (can be an encouragement, a warning, a battlecry, whatever), but it needs to be specifically convicting or encouraging in regards to dealing with sin, temptation, fleshly desires, etc. 

The songs DO NOT have to be metal. Any suggested Christian song with this theme is welcome. Here are some examples of what I'm looking for:

Theocracy - "Laying the Demon to Rest"



The 77's - "The Lust, the Flesh, the Eyes, and the Pride of Life"



Holy Soldier - "Lies"



Leeland - "Pure Bride"

This song came straight to my head when you mentioned struggles of the flesh... could very well be a Christian Metal song.....

Interesting take on the Death song, my man! I kinda doubt that was the intended message. Atheistic cultural appropriation?  Laughing  Rolf 1

Thanks! Yes, some of those are good ones I forgot about, and others I haven't heard. I'll check 'em!

Anything by Lust Control...
"Bird Nest" by One Bad Pig has a different approach to temptation (they also recorded a cover of the aforementioned 77's song)

Disciple "Come My Way" is excellent. Really good about that. So is their song Dear X.

Antestor - Svartedauen gjenkomst
The "Black Death" in the Song could very well be interpreted as sin, temptation etc. I think.

this may not be exactly what you're looking for but it always made me think about giving in to the flesh/temptation...realizing that when I sin I am "pounding the nails and setting the crown". I never really caught the lyric and one time listening it came through loud and clear and I honestly never knew what the song was about but every time I heard the lyric after that day it got me big time...

No. Not a Christian band. But I believe at least one of their members ... can't remember which one ... maybe Gary Cherone or Nuno Bettencourt ... is a strong Catholic.

They had a few hits in the late 80's and early 90's. You've probably heard some and didn't know it ... More Than Words, Hole Hearted, Decadence Dance.

I thought their third album was awesome from top to bottom. Here's another from that album which has faith shining through (at least how I hear it). Awesome song. A ballad. Takes a while to get started, but worth it. Great harmony.



One day
We'll find the time
To spend, together
Until then, my love
If I had one wish
It wouldn't be hard to choose
Seven Sundays in a row
Cause that's the day
That I spend with you
Someday soon,
You and I
Will hold each other
Once again, my love

If I had one wish
It wouldn't be hard to choose
Seven Sundays in a row
Seven Sundays in a row
Seven Sundays in a row
Cause that's the day
That I spend with you
If I had one wish
It wouldn't be hard to choose
