Satan is an ardent church goer. He likes to occupy the same pew as the lukewarm Christian.

—William Henry Bucklew, The Starkville News, Starkville, Miss., Aug. 6, 1948.

Satan is an intruder. He comes to disrupt our relationship with God. He knows the importance of cutting the spiritual life-line to our souls.

Satan is devoted to his task. ... Satan is subtle in his approach. ... One of Satan's greatest weapons is to plant doubt in our hearts. ... Doubt serves Satan's purpose better than heresy.

Satan does not want to be a parasite, but the master of our lives. Every bait he offers has a hook in it.

—David Holland, Beauregard Daily News, DeRidder, La., May 26, 1989.

The devil diligently spreads the propaganda that it requires great sacrifice to live right. The truth is that sin is expensive to any individual, neighborhood, or country.

The shortest and sweetest road to happiness and success is the straight road of righteousness. Many people do not believe this, but it is true nevertheless.

—F.M. McConnell, Baptist Standard, Dallas, Texas, July 11, 1940.
