"Has the devil been successful in his schemes?"

This is an interesting post (which I have seen before) that an anonymous blogger made in October:

"SATAN'S MEETING: (Read even if you're busy)
Satan called a worldwide convention of demons.

In his opening address he said, "We can't keep Christians from going to church."
"We can't keep them from reading their Bibles and knowing the truth. We can't even keep them from forming an intimate relationship with their savior. Once they gain that connection with Jesus, our power over them is broken."

"So let them go to their churches; BUT steal their time, so they don't have time to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ..This is what I want you to do," said the devil: "Distract them from gaining hold of their Savior and maintaining
that vital connection throughout their day!"

"How shall we do this?" his demons shouted.

"Keep them busy in the non-essentials of life and invent innumerable
schemes to occupy their minds," he answered. "Tempt them to spend, spend, spend, and borrow, borrow, borrow. Persuade the wives to go to work for long hours and the husbands to work 6-7 days each week, 10-12 hours a day, so they can afford their
empty lifestyles."

"Keep them from spending time with their children. As their families fragment, soon, their homes will offer no escape from the pressures of work! Over-stimulate their minds so that they cannot hear that still, small voice...That will fragment their families quickly!"

"Give them Santa Claus to distract them from teaching their children
the real meaning of Christmas. Give them an Easter bunny so they won't talk about his resurrection and power over sin and death. Keep them busy, busy, busy! And when they meet for spiritual fellowship, involve them in gossip and small talk so that they leave with troubled consciences. It will work! It will work!"

It was quite a plan!

The demons went eagerly to their assignments causing Christians everywhere to get busier and more rushed, going here and there. Having little time for their God or their families and having no time to tell others about the power of Jesus to change
lives.

I guess the question is, has the devil been successful in his
schemes?"

Yes, he is successful. why else would the road to hell be wide, and the entry to heaven narrow? He is successful in many ways but he is not victorious. He is a loser and he hates to be mocked. He is such a loser. As the scriptures says we are here on earth fighting spiritual warfare.
Jesus is victorious. Only through Him can we work out our salvation.
