If I were The Devil Empty If I were The Devil

If I Were the Devil

"Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil
prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone
to devour."1 "The Spirit clearly says that in later
times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving
spirits and things taught by demons."2

The copy for today's Daily Encounter has been
attributed to Paul Harvey who is reported as having
said:

If I were the devil:

I would gain control of the most powerful nation in
the world;

I would delude their minds into thinking that they had
come from man's effort, instead of God's blessings;

I would promote an attitude of loving things and using
people, instead of the other way around;

I would dupe entire states into relying on gambling
for their state revenue;

I would convince people that character is not an issue
when it comes to leadership;

I would make it legal to take the life of unborn
babies;

I would make it socially acceptable to take one's own
life, and invent machines to make it convenient;

I would cheapen human life as much as possible so that
the life of animals are valued more that human beings;

I would take God out of the schools, where even the
mention of His name was grounds for a lawsuit;

I would come up with drugs that sedate the mind and
target the young, and I would get sports heroes to
advertise them;

I would get control of the media, so that every night
I could pollute the mind of every family member for my
agenda;

I would attack the family, the backbone of any nation.


I would make divorce acceptable and easy, even
fashionable. If the family crumbles, so does the
nation;

I would compel people to express their most depraved
fantasies on canvas and movie screens, and I would
call it art;

I would convince the world that people are born
homosexuals, and that their lifestyles should be
accepted and marveled;

I would convince the people that right and wrong are
determined by a few who call themselves authorities
and refer to their agenda as politically correct;

I would persuade people that the church is irrelevant
and out of date, and the Bible is for the naive;

I would dull the minds of Christians, and make them
believe that prayer is not important, and that
faithfulness and obedience are optional;

I guess I would leave things pretty much the way they
are.*

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, please give me a spirit
of discernment so I will recognize the 'wiles and ways
of the devil' and not be taken in by him. And please
deliver me from obsessing about the devil and giving
him more attention than he merits. Thank you for
hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus'
name, amen."

1. 1 Peter 5:8 (NIV).
2. 1 Timothy 4:1 (NIV).
