If you don’t want to get tripped up by the devil’s traps, start by knowing what they look like.
In this week’s deep dive into the old wisdom of how NOT to get done in by el Diablo, we’re digging into self-deception.
If the thing you’re doing ‘isn’t so bad’ after all, why would you want to repent of it?
And if your vice is actually a virtue, why would you ever listen to any warnings that it’s bad?
And just like that, the trap is sprung, and you’re on your way to becoming another derelict wreck on the rocks.
It’s not vanity or greed — it’s ambition, right?
It’s not gluttony, you just love food.
It’s not adultery or fornication, just an ‘extramarital affair’?
If you’re talking like that, you’ve already been ensnared and will need to cut your way out. You can justify how ‘you are the special case’ and that ‘God understands’
OR, you could pay attention to the warnings from scripture and elsewhere.
If you don’t recognize and identify the true face of sin, how can you possibly hate it?
And if you don’t hate it, how can you possibly hope to stand against it?

Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
