Religion Opinion / How Does the Devil Control Human Life?
« on: November 06, 2007, 04:39:27 PM »
Have you ever felt under attack by a force beyond yourself? Paul was well aware of such an influence when he wrote of the "law in (his) members, warring against the law of (his) mind" Romans 7:23. We are at war with the most formidable foe imaginable. His mission is to destroy our faith in God. Satan is not some mythical character with horns, tail, and pitchfork. He is very sophisticated and specialized. He is the greatest under-cover agent of all times., Biblical descriptions of him include everything from an angel of light to a ravenous beast. Anyone is a welcome challenge to him, from Adam to Jesus himself. Nobody is too good or powerful for his advances. He was strong enough to defeat one of the apostles of Jesus. Satan's attacks are relentless. He can provoke, tempt, enter into, transform himself, and vex. He is a cunning trap-setter, and his prey is man. The bounty he collects is eternal damnation. He loves to manipulate and control, and his most dreaded weapon is death. He convinces theologians that he is non-existent, and thereby gains his strongest foothold. It is easy to see evidence of his activity in today's world by observing the crumbling American home, vulgar speech, despicable movies, the conduct of office and factory personnel, and the cruelty of sports events. Satan's greatest temptations are hurled against "good people" not the drunkards, liars, thieves, adulteresses, and murderers. He already controls them. Both Christ and Paul were so aware of his influence that their teaching is filled with warnings and dangers for those who try to live godly lives (Matthew 24:24; II Corinthians 11:13-15; II Thessalonians 2:7-11; Galatians 1:8). "The devil has a file on you." He knows your name and shudders every time you confess Christ. He wants to destroy your desire to live a holy life. In short, he wants you to worship him. You may recoil at the spectacle of an organized "Church of Satan", but there are many other ways in which you can pay homage to him. An egocentric preoccupation with self is one of his most deceptive attacks. Satan is the originator of self-worship, because that is his basic nature (Isaiah 14:13,14; Ezekial 23:2). When one exalts "self" he robs-God of the praise rightfully due him only. And the devil is pleased. The popularity of the devil was revealed in a survey by Dr. Clyde Z. Nunn. The Cincinnati Inquirer of April 4, 1974, published the results of a study made by the Center for Policy Research, of which Dr. Nunn is Senior Research Associate. This study revealed that among the 3,546 persons interviewed, belief in the devil's existence was up 11 per cent and the certainty of God's existence was down 8 per cent. Though Satan is neither omnipotent nor omniscient, he has tremendous powers of manipulation. The Bible says, "And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness" I John 5:19. His sword of craftiness is wielded in the time and space container in which we dwell. The most catastrophic blunder man can make is the attempt to combat Satan without submitting to God. Many are disarmed by believing the devil is not fierce. We must decide to submit to God. His promise is, "Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you" James 4:7. To resist Satan without submitting to God is only half the strategy. But even after recognizing the enemy and deciding to seek help, we must still put on the armor. God's arsenal is open to us. The battle array comes in all sizes. "Wherefore take unto you the whole amour of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having on the breastplate of righteousness; and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith you shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God" Ephesians 6:13-17.

Bill Donohue, president of The catholic League, has condemned "The Golden Compass" as a pernicious effort to indoctrinate children into anti-Christian beliefs and has produced a 23-page pamphlet titled The Golden Compass: Unmasked in which he maintains that Pullman "sells atheism for kids". Donohoe told interviewer John Gibson on Oct 9, 2007 why he believed Christians should stay away from the film....

You may already know about the kids movie coming out in December
starring Nicole Kidman. It's called The Golden Compass, and while it
will be a watered down version, it is based on a series of children's
books about killing God. (It is the anti-Narnia.) Please follow this
link and then pass it on. From what I understand, the hope is to get a
lot of kids to see the movie - which won't seem too bad - and then get
the parents to buy the books for their kids for Christmas. The quotes
from the author sum it all up. I hope it totally bombs because we were
all paying attention!
God sets His truth in picture frames of life.



Subject: Caution with this Movie...

There will be a new children's movie out in December called "The Golden
Compass". The movie has been described as "atheism for
kids" and is based on the first book of a trilogy entitled "His Dark
Materials" that was written by Phillip Pullman. Pullman is a militant
atheist and secular humanist who despises C. S. Lewis and the
"Chronicles
of Narnia". His motivation for writing this trilogy was specifically
to counteract Lewis' symbolisms of Christ that are portrayed in the
Narnia
series.


Clearly, Pullman's main objective is to bash Christianity and promote
atheism. Pullman left little doubt
about his intentions when he said in a 2003 interview that "my books
are about killing God."
He has even stated that he wants to "kill God in the minds of
children". It has been said of Pullman that he is "the writer the
atheists would be praying for, if atheists prayed."

< BR>While "The Golden Compass" movie itself may seem mild and
innocent, the books are a much different story. In the trilogy, a young
streetwise girl becomes enmeshed in an epic struggle to ultimately
defeat the
oppressive forces of a senile God. Another character, an ex-nun,
describes Christianity as "a very powerful and convincing mistake."
In the final book, characters representing Adam and Eve eventually kill
God, who at times is called YAHWEH. Each book in the trilogy gets
progressively worse regarding Pullman's
hatred of Jesus Christ.



"The Golden Compass" is set to premier on December 7, during the
Christmas season, and will probably be heavily advertised. Promoters
hope
that unsuspecting parents will take their children to see the movie,
that they
will enjoy the movie, and that the children will want the books for
Christmas.



Please consider a boycott of the movie and the books. Also, pass this
information along to everyone you know. This will help to educate
parents, so that they will know the agenda of the movie.
