Satan's Devices: A Look at the Satanic Temple

Chelsea and I talk about current news of The Satanic Temple expanding programs in elementary schools, including in a small town in Colorado.

Lucien Greaves co-founded The Satanic Temple as a religious institution to claim religious rights recognized under the Constitution. The institution has seven secular humanistic tenants that sound reasonable until they are applied to political causes like abortion.

We observe four of Satan's devices from the Bible for how Satan operates as the god of this world and through organizations like The Satanic Temple:

  1. Discrete operations
  2. Man-centeredness
  3. Deception of goodness
  4. Myth of neutrality

Scriptures Referenced:

2 Corinthians 2:11; 11:14-15

Matthew 13:39; 16:23,26

John 6:70; 12:4-8

Psalm 14:1

Matthew 12:30

Ephesians 6:11-12
