Conversion: Both Easy and Impossible

"Let no temptation take hold on you, but such as is human. And God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that which you are able: but will make also with temptation issue, that you may be able to bear it."-1 Cor. 10:13

God never lets us be tempted beyond our abilities. That means even the worst sinner in the world, living in adultery, full of anger and empty emotional and physical pleasure, with the worst most developed ill repute and has been living this way for years on end, long removed from her pure youth is perfectly capable of leaving her sins and is not tempted beyond her most meager abilities. That is how much we are capable of repenting and returning to purity. When someone refuses to repent, it's not because she can't repent, it's because she doesn't want to. Pray for conversions. Go to confession.
