This is the time of year when young people try to figure out what they want to pretend to be for Halloween. They will wear a mask that makes them look like something that they are not—like a monster or a superhero. It is all in good fun, and few adults are actually fooled by these disguises.
The Bible tells us that the devil tries to disguise himself in order to fool people. 2 Cor.11:14-15 says, “…for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.”
Some of Satan’s servants try to portray themselves as protectors of women’s rights when they are really promoting the destruction of innocent babies in the womb. Others would like to be seen as people who promote love, acceptance and tolerance, but they are actually enablers for those who choose lifestyles that are forbidden by God. Still others insist that the enlightened approach to economic success is to redistribute wealth by punishing the “makers” and rewarding the “takers”, but their ways are not God’s ways.
Don’t be fooled by Satan or any of his cohorts! See through their masquerades and point out their schemes to others.
