Always tempting

John Owen in his book Overcoming Sin and Temptation does not underestimate the power of sin:
Sin is always acting, always conceiving, always seducing and tempting....There is not a a day but sin foils or is foiled, prevails or is prevailed on; and it will be so while we live in the world....there is no safety against it but in a constant warfare."
Do we take sin that seriously?  Would we be getting beat up less if we did?
