The Devil


The Devil called a worldwide convention.  In his opening address his evil servants, he said, "We can't keep the Good, God believing people from going to Mosques, Temples, Churches.  We can't keep them from reading their Holy Books and knowing the truth.   We can't even keep them from forming an intimate, abiding relationship experience with God. If they gain that connection with God, our power over them is broken.  So let them go to the Places of worship, let them have their conservative life-styles, but steal their time, so they can't gain that relationship with God.

"This is what I want you to do, servants.  Distract them from gaining hold of their creator and maintaining that vital connection throughout their day!"

"How shall we do this?" Shouted his servants.  Keep them busy in nonessentials of life and invent innumerable schemes to occupy their minds", he answered.  "Tempt them to spend, spend, spend borrow, borrow, borrow.  Persuade the wives to go to work for long hours and the husbands to work 6 - 7 days a week, 10 - 12 hours a day, so they can afford their empty life-styles.  Keep them from spending time with their children.   As their family fragments, soon , their home will offer no escape from the pressure of work!"

"Overstimulate their minds so that they cannot hear that still, small voice.  Entice them to play the radio or cassette player whenever they drive, to keep the TV, VCR, CDs and their PCs going constantly in their homes.  This will jam their minds and break that union with God".  "Fill the coffee table with magazines and newspapers.  Pound their minds with the news 24 hours a day .  Invade their driving moments with billboards.  Flood their mailboxes with junk mail, mail order catalogues, sweepstakes, and every kind of newsletter and emotional offering of free products, services and false hopes.  "Even in their recreation, let them be excessive.  Have them return from their recreation exhausted, disquieted and unprepared for the coming week.   Don't let them go out in nature to reflect on God's wonders.  Send them to amusement parks, sporting events, concerts and movies instead.   Keep them busy, busy, busy !! And when they meet for spiritual fellowship, involve them in gossip and small talk so that they leave with troubled consciousness and unsettled emotions".

"Go ahead, let them be involved in soul winning.  But crowd their lives with so many good causes they have not time to seek power from God.  Soon they will be working in their own strength, sacrificing their health and family for the good of the cause.   It will work!   It will work! It was quite a convention.  And the evil servants went eagerly to their assignments causing Believers everywhere to get busy, busy and busy and to rush here and there.



I guess the question is:   has the devil been successful at his scheme?  Well you are the best judge.
