WHAT THE DEVIL MIGHT DO WITH YOU
By Ken Blue
If I were the Devil I’d point to the hypocrites in the church, and I’d scoff…
I’d point to imaginary contradictions in the Bible, and I’d scoff…
And I would convince you that all religions are after your money, and I’d scoff…
If I were the Devil I’d keep your mind occupied with movies, music, and money.
I’d convince you that evolution is right, and that there is no purpose for your existence.
And you are a product of chance, and the chimpanzee is your first cousin.
If I were the Devil I’d poison your mind with pornography until you couldn’t think of anything else.
I’d destroy your body with drugs, and alcohol until you were burned out.
And I would destroy your soul through bitterness at the God you do not believe exist.
If I were the Devil I’d keep you so busy you would become set in your ways.
I’d harden your will as concrete, so when it came time for you to die, you’d have no desire or will to believe.
And I’d destroy your life, or bless it, so you would curse God as you go home with me to hell forever. And then I’d scoff!
(The idea came from Paul Harvey)
Pastor Ken Blue was born in Boswell, Ark. In 1955 he accepted Christ as his Savior. He and his wife Joyce were married in 1955. They have 5 children. He graduated from Midwestern Baptist Bible College in 1969 and started the Open Door Baptist Church in Lynnwood, Wa. where he pastored for 39 years. Because of health issues (ALS) he was forced to resign as pastor. It is his desire to continue to be used of God to help pastors and believers through this ministry.

Pastor Blue, the posting is very thought provoking. I like the point you made. “If I were the Devil I’d keep you so busy you would became set in your ways.”
