Satan is a master of deception.
As a Christian, I believe wholeheartedly in the existence of Satan and his daily efforts to draw mankind away from the love and truth of God. It is in this light that I can’t help but draw some conclusions about the Trayvon Martin / George Zimmerman tragedy. First and foremost, this was a tragedy, but the legalities of the case are not the focus of my assertions here.
I want to talk about truth. Since the beginning of time, Satan has known that the greatest opportunity to divide and conquer mankind begins–no, not with race, religion, ethnicity, or gender–but with the family. No other institution possesses the power, love, and intimacy needed to disciple the truth of God’s love. But even if you’re not a Believer, only ignorance would deny that the foundation of morality, values, and ethics begin within the home. If Satan can undermine that foundation, he can undermine the support system that is so essential to self-esteem and so essential to having healthy relationships in every facet of life. (more)
