If I were the Devil

by Paul Harvey

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.

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 the 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 law suit;

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 mind of
every family member for my agenda;

I would attack the 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 movie
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 at;

I would convince the people that right and wrong
are determined by a few who call themselves
authorities and refer to their agenda as
politically correct;

I would persuade people that the church is
irrelevant and out of date,
and 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."
