One of Satan’s favorite tools is psychological warfare. He just loves to make us miserable and feel defeated. He also uses this tactic to instill fear and uncertainty. In the Bible, Satan is also called the father of lies, a deceiver and the accuser of the brethren.
A man named Saul Alinsky tapped into this wellspring of evil tactics and wrote a book called “Rules for Radicals.” Like Barack Obama, Saul Alinsky was a community organizer and posited the ideology of communism in at least three books (pamphlets). In his writings he foisted Neo-Marxist ideology on the unsuspecting populous – poisoning them with his political ideology to supplant democracy by means of gradual infiltration rather than revolution. Hillary Clinton was a rabid follower of these precepts and even gave a thesis on his book.
Most of the time, half-truths are incorporated in ideological warfare with the “enemy” (normal people). But with the advent of the internet, this is getting harder and harder to do since the information age lets us be aware of the goings-on across the whole world. A person need not be deluded in this atmosphere of deceit and subversion of our way of life.
Brainwashing is another term used to describe these effects on the human condition – and for lazy or foolish people, this tactic usually works. One of the things Alinsky espoused was: if you tell a lie often enough, people will begin to accept it. We are now seeing this tactic being used every day to keep the populous off balance.
Saul Alinsky wrote, “The first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.” The following are just two examples of psychological and physical warfare being waged by Satan:
I bumped into Anna the Catholic again today and asked her how she was doing. Of course, I knew she was still agonizing over the problems the Catholic church was having regarding the rampant pedophilia that had recently been exposed among the supposedly celibate priests. She smiled and tried to be nonchalant and in control. Inwardly, I’m sure she was hoping I wouldn’t broach the subject again. I, in turn, was amicable toward her. The poor soul. I hated to tell her about the latest scandal but decided after a few pleasantries to say something about it. Do I tell her about that too? How will she find out if I don’t tell her and her husband? I did so without rancor.
I lightly warned her that there was a new inquiry in New York about it happening there too. She hesitated; I had caught her off guard. And with a degree of finality and with a sly smile on her face, she said, “Father so and so told us it was all of the devil that this was happening” as if to say, “We’ve exposed him.” I’m thinking, what took you so long and what are you going to do about it? Why are you folks in denial? Why?
On further research I found that these evil priests had a dating network of other like-minded individuals. The photos and names were there for the whole world to see; they were partying, drinking, smiling and posing in various states of dress or lack thereof. They even had contact numbers such as is found on dating services!
People hate to be proven wrong; and, in most matters, one must take care not to be offensive. That would only cause her and her husband to stand firm in the spiritual quagmire they’ve created for themselves for not knowing scripture. “My people perish for lack of knowledge.”
On the other hand, some of us like to appear as godly people, earning the supposed respect of others. “Having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof.”
On further reflection I can only guess that Anna and her husband are taking this thing seriously enough to take a stand and leave that heretical, apostate and hypocritical church.
So, what can a man do but to warn family, friends and others about the dangers of believing in mere men as opposed to God and His written word? In this case, I must wait to see what God would have me do.
I also have another case to report. This one has to do with a young lady who works at a nearby thrift store that I frequent. She is an indigenous person about thirty years old and very shy – hardly ever looking at the customers but instead always looking down at the goods she is checking out.
I found a brand new and very interesting illustrated Bible and was buying it for my grandson. This Bible was created by a Christian artist and is fully illustrated beautifully. It is named “The Action Bible” and has won the Christian Book Award.
In any case this is the first time the young cashier noticed and commented on a purchase. She leafed through the pages and fell in love with it. I asked if she was a Christian. She said she was a Mormon. To this I replied facetiously, “Oh you mean the church that was founded by a guy who found two gold plates buried in the ground and talked to the angel Boney Moroni? At this she let out a full-throated laugh, repeating “BONEY MARONI?” to which I said, “We have to talk.” This is the first time I’d ever seen her smile.
The checkout line was beginning to grow, and so I had to say goodbye. Is this one going to receive Christ and find happiness and peace of mind through a letter I’m composing – just for her? I hope so.
This is another example of deceit and psychological warfare foisted on people by the Evil one. One that would keep us chained by fear and uncertainty.
Jesus said, “I have come to set the captives free.” And if the Son sets a man free, he is free indeed, so let us look to the Bible which espouses only truth and look to God for guidance. In doing so, God’s promise is, “I will keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
