I was listening to Pastor Mark on the radio this week and he said "If you have truly been saved you will have a changed heart, follow Jesus's commandments, and not fall in to sinfull things". "If you find yourself commiting sinful things you probably are not saved". I thought I was saved but find myself thinking lustful thoughts at different times. I would never act on these thoughts because I know they are wrong but the very nature of having them is like committing adultry. According to Pastor Mark's reasont message I probably am not truly saved and this concerns me a great deal. Can you please comment??

James 1:13 states that God can neither tempt nor be tempted. Luke 11:4b, Matthew 6:13a, Matthew 4:1, Deuteronomy 6:16 all indicate that He is capable of both. Can you clear up this apparent contradiction?
During Jesus' 40 days in the desert, Satan tempted Him with food, testing of God's protection, and power/wealth. With all of the warnings against sexual temptation/lust in the Bible (particularly Paul's warnings in his Epistles), why didn't Satan tempt Jesus with the lust/sex?
