Christian Understanding of Deception by R. Douglas Wardrop"e;The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy."e; John 10:10a NKJVsatan is the god of this world (see 2 Corinthians 4:4 and 1 John 5:19), is the "e;father of lies"e; (see John 8:44), and his job description is to "e;steal, and to kill, and to destroy."e; In order to achieve his aims, he most often lies to us and deceives us."e;For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds."e; 2 Corinthians 10:4 NKJVsatan often disguises his forces to make them look like natural problems so you'll fight them with natural weapons. But you cannot fight a spiritual foe with natural weapons but with spiritual weapons, i.e. speaking God's word to the devil and his demons."e;For satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light."e; 2 Corinthians 11:14b NKJVUnfortunately satan can disguise himself as an "e;angel of light,"e; so it is possible to be deceived by an innocent and apparently correct Christian teaching (see Matthew 24:4, 24:5; Mark 13:5, 13:6; and Luke 21:8).Often these inaccurate or incomplete teachings focus on God's love and blessings (thus appealing to our flesh and so lead us astray (see Mark 13:22 and 1 Timothy 4:1) and do not mention His greatness, or our need to obey Him and have a reverential fear of Him.This book aims to help reveal satan's lie and deception strategies and so empower Christians to live the Christian life that God intended.R. Douglas Wardrop's other two books are A Young Person's Guide to Christianity and Spiritual Disciplines for Today - Getting Closer to God.
