"You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it."
If we aren't serving God, we're serving the devil.
II Corinthians 4:4
"...whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them."
The devil's blinded the eyes of unbelievers.
"Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you."
"Be angry, and do not sin: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil."
If he gets us in one small area, he can get the rest of us.
What you are like in your personality reveals how you are tempted.
The temptation is tailor-made to the tempted.
