If I Were The Devil

By Paul Harvey


If I were the Devil..... 

I would gain control of the most powerful nation in the world. 

I would delude their minds into thinking that they had come from man's effort, instead of God's blessings. 

I would promote an attitude of loving things and using people, instead of the other way around. 

I would dupe entire states into relying on gambling for their state revenue. 

I would convince people that character is not an issue when it comes to leadership. 

I would make it legal to take the life of unborn babies. 

I would make it socially acceptable to take one's own life, and invent machines to make it convenient. 

I would cheapen human life as much as possible so that the life of animals are valued more that human beings. 

I would take God out of the schools, where even the mention of His name was grounds for a law suit. 

I would come up with drugs that sedate the mind and target the young, and I would get sports heroes to advertise them. 

I would get control of the media, so that every night I could pollute the mind of every family member for my agenda. 

I would attack the family, the backbone of any nation. 

I would make divorce acceptable and easy, even fashionable. If the family crumbles, so does the nation. 

I would compel people to express their most depraved fantasies on canvas and movie screens, and I would call it art. 

I would convince the world that people are born homosexuals, and that their lifestyles should be accepted and marveled. 

I would convince the people that right and wrong are determined by a few who call themselves authorities and refer to their agenda as politically correct. 

I would persuade people that the church is irrelevant and out of date, and the Bible is for the naive.

I would dull the minds of Christians, and make them believe that prayer is not important, and that faithfulness and obedience are optional. 

I guess I would leave things pretty much the way they are."
