keep them from reading their Bibles and knowing the truth."
even keep them from forming an intimate relationship with their Savior."

them go to their churches; let them have their covered dish dinners, BUT steal their time, so they don't have time to develop
a relationship with Jesus Christ..."
"This is what
I want you to do," said the devil:
"Distract them from gaining hold of their Savior and maintaining that vital connection
throughout their day!"
"How shall we do this?" his demons shouted.
"Keep them busy in the non-essentials of
life and invent innumerable schemes to occupy their minds," he answered.
"Tempt them to spend, spend, spend, and borrow,
borrow, borrow. Persuade the wives to go to work for long hours and the husbands to work 6-7 days each week, 10-12 hours a
day, so they can afford their empty lifestyles."
"Keep them from spending time with their children. As their families
fragment, soon, their homes will offer no escape from the pressures of work!"
"Over-stimulate their minds so that
they cannot hear the still, small voice of Jesus. Entice them to play the radio or cassette player whenever they drive." The

"And when they meet for spiritual fellowship, involve them in gossip
and small talk so that they leave with troubled consciences."
"Crowd their lives with so many good causes they have
