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 life of animals are valued more than human beings;
I would take God out of the schools, where even the mention of His name was grounds for a lawsuit;
 
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 minds of every family member for my
agenda;
 
I would attack then 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 movies 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 agendas as politically correct;
I would persuade people that the church is irrelevant and out of date, the Bible is for the naive: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!
