Our Enemy manipulates through fear, guilt, shame, and desire-for-the-forbidden.  He uses these hooks to direct others’ decisions by remote-control.  He strives to maintain deniability.  His methods and true goal are at odds with his stated objectives.  Other people are pawns used in obtaining his own purpose.

God’s purposes are clear and clearly stated.  He is so much about communication that he nicknamed his son “The Word”.   Truth is paramount.  Relationships aren’t the means to an objective, they are the objective.  He motivates others to do the right thing regardless of the personal cost.

No matter what we say, we are in the camp of the one whose methods we use.
