Temptation alone is not sin, knowing the temptation is bad and overcoming the temptation is definitely not sin, it could even bring merits as we cling to the good side.
Jesus himself was tempted many times while walking on earth 2000 years ago. Surely Jesus did not sin just being tempted. (actually Jesus as human being is as capable to sinning as anyone of us.)
Judas was tempted, for 30 pieces of coins he betrayed Jesus, he fell for the temptation, sin is for sure... whether he repented is another academic question.
Peter was tempted and denied Jesus 3 times to save his own skin, sin of course, but he confessed to Jesus (after Jesus rose from the death) and was forgiven.
Sin is a deliberate act against God.
Temptation alone is not sin.
But if we let temptations lead us into action that is contrary to Church's teaching and displeases God, sin is for sure.
Cindy, I hope you understand.
He says to make money we must serve the rich, and help the poor!
If we help the rich to make 10 millions, rightfully we should benefit by earning 1 million, or so.
While at the same time we should help the poor to become rich, so that when they are rich, we can serve them too.
I tend to agree with him!
