Rhetorical Tricks of the Enemy’s Trade [Pt. 2]

Hiram R. Diaz III

“God the Son tells us to be wise as serpents and meek as doves. This is not advice; it is a command. It is a command that places upon all of God’s saints the responsibility of being aware of how the devil and the unbelievers under his influence wage war against the church… 

“The devil aims to deceive the naive, to create and nurture divisiveness and stumbling blocks contrary to the sound doctrine once for all delivered to the saints. He aims to achieve this through ‘smooth talk’ and ‘flattery.’ And as it was in the time of Adam and Eve, so it has been with the enemies of God ever since…”

  1. I was sorry I could hardly read it for the small print. But I do understand we are not to be ignorant of the enemies devises……Jesus wasn’t using a slogan to be casually spoken and then ignored. We are in a life and death spiritual battle and we need to be alert at all times. I say alert, not paranoid 🙂
    Lord bless you Maria…

    • Hi, Scarlett! yes, white on black is hard to read. I copied and pasted and then printed it out to read.

      Right! No slogans ever. Jesus used the words ravening wolves about false teachers who are the enemy’s servants – a really strong warning. And that’s because as you said it is a matter of life and death. Perhaps it’s like climbing a rock wall. You have to always know where you are. Right – not paranoid but alert. :0) I guess we may look paranoid at times, but that’s okay.

      Lord bless you too, sister. It’s always good to have you comment.

      Hebrews 5:13-14
      13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
