Let ‛s start at the beginning. If you remember from
Exodus Chapter 20, the first commandment is . . .
 
  Duh, I, uh . . . Thou Shalt
Not . . . something . . .
 
     
  That ‛s irrelevant,
I ‛m not
on trial here.
 
     
  This seems like a basic, simple commandment, but Satan has found a way to
convince people that peace, freedom, and happiness can be found from worldly
sources. This “ bait and switch ” tactic is the basis of all of his ploys. He tricks
people into thinking he, and not God, holds the keys to paradise and peace.
 
     
  This is fun making my own
God. Now, if I can get people
to worship it, I will have control
over their lives.
 
     
  Hey, I ‛m a nice guy too, in fact, I am the God of this world and I have great
and instant rewards for those who follow me. Living Prophets are not needed.
We now have plenty of ministers, man ‛s great wisdom in this day of progress,
and discoveries to decide for ourselves what is right and wrong. After all,
everyone should be able to enjoy their God-given appetites and passions.
