“Well this is witty and a great way of making religion more interesting!”

“I liked finding the scriptures at the end. When I looked the passages up, it helped to explain some of your imagery and symbolism that I didn't quite understand initially.”

"Lovely. Allegorical Bible commentaries (parables) and teachings are powerful. I like how the scripture references follow each thought to show the association and reveal truths in God's Word."

The devil has long since been canceled out of the equation between God and mankind. And, like any relationship, the only trespassing option is through temptation. A simple, holy, stare at temptation's pattern will quickly become a shield of wisdom to Satan's tactics. So let’s do it! Let's eavesdrop on the scene where Jesus Himself was tempted by Satan:

 

TEMPTATION TACTIC # 1
(from Matthew 4:3):

"And when the tempter came to him, he said, ‘If thou be the Son of God … (let's pause right here!)”

 

Temptation will always start out with a confrontational doubt: one perception trying to bully another one. It’s the origin of peer pressure and oppression. It is a secular faith simply hoping for a weak will.

 

The reality is Satan already knew. The real goal was to get his foot in the psychological door, and lure the animation of truth with a dare. That's right! Temptation, simplified, is just a "Psst...come 'er," to an isolated (independent) truth, inviting self-perception into a game that (1) it doesn’t have to play and, (2) wouldn’t even benefit from. Can you imagine a blind man taunting an African-American saying, "If you’re really black, than prove it by [stereotype.]” Temptation wins if the motivation to battle an insult with proof is strong enough. However, temptation looses when one remembers they're never responsible for what tempters do or do not "see.” Temptation prays for (or preys on) victims who are "blind" to this tactic!”


‘Okay... from the top!”


'And when the tempter came to him, he said, ‘If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread (Matthew 4:3)'


I think it’s a coincidence that the devil waited 40 days before he aimed his temptation (Matthew 4:2). And I don’t believe this delicious method for proof was a miscellaneous pick. Can you guess how long the body can go without food? You got it! Let’s solve this equation:

 

Tempters use your own atmosphere and physiology against you for better accuracy. Whether it be sexual, violent, or political, this is the game plan behind it: to make your own nature its own Judas. This way a betrayal of righteousness still at least feels right (calming the battle within). That's why a fighter burglarizes your comfort zone, or a bribe is spontaneous. Always remember regret has a short deadline...      (Discover and outsmart ALL of temptation's tactics on page 51 in the book)
