The Truth... What is it?

Satan's Convention

Satan called a worldwide convention. In his opening address to his evil angels, he said, "We can't keep the  Christians from going to church. We can't keep them from reading their  Bibles & knowing the truth. We can't even keep them from conservative  values. But we can do something else.    We can keep them from forming an intimate, abiding relationship  experience in Christ. If they gain that connection with Jesus, our power  over them is broken. So let them go to church, let them have their  conservative lifestyles, but steal their time, so they can't gain that  experience in Jesus Christ.   

This is what I want you to do, Angels. Distract them from gaining hold  of their Savior & maintaining that vital connection  throughout their day!"    "How shall we do this?", shouted his angels.    "Keep them busy in the non-essentials of life, & invent un-numbered  schemes to occupy their minds," he answered. "Tempt them to spend,  spend, spend, then, borrow, borrow, borrow. Convince the wives to go to  work for long hours & the husbands to work 6 or 7 days a week, 10-12  hrs. a day, so they can afford their lifestyles.    Keep them from spending time with their children. As their family  fragments, soon, their homes will offer no escape from the pressures of  work."    "Over stimulate 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. And see to it that every store & restaurant in the world plays  non-biblical music constantly. This will jam their minds & break that  union with Christ."    "Fill their coffee tables with magazines & newspapers. Pound their minds  with the news 24 hrs. a day. Invade their driving moments with  billboards. Flood their mailboxes with junk mail, sweepstakes,  mail-order catalogues, & every kind of newsletter & promotional  offering, free products, services, & false hopes."    "Even in their recreation, let them be excessive. Have them return from  their recreation exhausted, disquieted & 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 & movies instead. And  when they meet for spiritual fellowship, involve them in gossip & small  talk so that they leave with troubled consciences & unsettled emotion."  

"Let them be involved in soul-winning. But crowd their lives with so  many good causes they have no time to seek power from Christ. Soon they  will be working in their own strength, sacrificing their health & family  unity for the good of the cause."    It was quite a convention in the end. And the evil angels went eagerly  to their assignments causing Christians everywhere to get busy, busy,  busy & rush here & there.    Has the devil been successful at his scheme?    You be the judge.
