I am going to throw this statement out….more people in the church are being used by Satan than by God.
This is not a “I am a young liberal punk who hates everything about the church and thinks I am a genius” statement.
This is a “what is going on and is anyone else noticing” post. After hearing a story from a close friend yesterday about the discouragement that he faced at church he reminded me of the idea that people can be used by God but can also be used as a tool of Satan.
I had never thought about this idea of people being used by Satan.
Sure you have your people who say they are Satan worshipers etc…but I never thought that people inside the church could be used by Satan. I am seeing this take place more and more. Whether it be through gossip, trying to be real and authentic (in other words tell people like it is without showing love) or just down right sin, Satan is using the church to spread the message of despair and pain.
Maybe this is not a new thought for you, maybe you are like me and it is something you never thought about.
How can we be an instrument of God and not a tool of Satan?
I watched this video the other day and laughed, got angry, laughed some more, and then wanted to type in a little comment. I had to stop watching it about 3 minutes in because I was getting really hateful (which is another great tool of satan, telling us to love our enemies like terrorist, but hate the person sitting next to us) and had a few choice words for this guy. I share this video with you not to say this guy is an idiot (well, its true, but that’s beside the point) but to show an example of Satan using someone as a tool of hate and harm.
