The Darker Side of Evil

Selected highlights from this sermon.

Satan works through weaknesses we already have. He’ll put thoughts into our minds that we think are our own. Because Satan isn’t attractive to us, but sin is, he’ll take sins such as covetousness, the exaltation of self, and sexual temptations and use them to entice us.

From things that appear harmless, (New Age ideas, palm reading), to things that are blatantly sinful (pornography, occultism), even things that you have no control over (abused as a child, ancestral involvement in the occult)—Satan will use these as entry points into your life. And once he gets a foothold, he’ll take as much territory as he can.

To get out from under his thumb, you have to submit to Christ and put on the whole armor of God, and little by little, as battles are won against the enemy, he’ll back off.  And you can press on to be who God wants you to be.
