When Satan Attacks

Dear Guanocopious,

I’ve seen all that you’ve done. How you utilized all means to prevent opportunities for the slaves of the Enemy to meet our patient and how you inflicted discomfort in our patient to lure him to rejection [1]. However, I must say that you’ve overlooked the fact that we are currently at war with the Enemy who has control over the elements [2] and can reverse the curses that you’ve inflicted [3].

It’s a pity that the Enemy has outwitted you this time and won the heart of our patient. He has now successfully conquered the stronghold of our patient’s heart and mind [4], and there is a high chance that He will not surrender this stronghold [5].

But fret not. Even though our patient has sworn allegiance to our Enemy, don’t forget that he is still a new recruit in the pack. That said, this meant that we can still win him over [6].

But that must be done with a plan. Given your incompetence, let me walk you through the general layout of our Enemy’s fortress within our patient.

There are two levels to our Enemy’s fortress. The first level is the head knowledge and social pressure. When our patient made a profession of faith, swearing allegiance to the Enemy, he was conscious and he knew what he said [7]. On top of this, there are witnesses holding him accountable for his words [8]. But our patient’s understanding of the fortress ends there. He’s been told about the inner level but he has never entered it, neither will he enter it in the near future [9].

This inner level is where our Enemy dwells. But, He is unlikely going to make contact with the patient after profession [10] unless our patient enters this zone on his own accord [11]. Hence, it is our core responsibility to guide our patient away from this inner fortress and into a mode of betrayal.

There are many ways to do this, but based on my experience, the best way to do this is to appeal to the patient’s inner design. Remember that our patient was made in the likeness of our Enemy [12]. This likeness is exactly why we are pursuing him. Anyhow, this likeness dictates how our patient think and reason. This likeness tells our patient good from evil. Now, if you were to promote our patient to think that he has the authority over his circle of influence, then you’re assured success [13].

Lure him into thinking that status is good [14]. Nudge him into power so he may boast. I kid you not, the Enemy will not pull him down from power until the time is up. Hence, do not fear. Approach him in broad daylight and entice him to power. Lure him into serving the Enemy. Guide him to get approval from the slaves of the Enemy. When approval abounds, so does pride. And when our patient is filled with pride, he will not have space for our Enemy [15].

I see that you’ve shaped the world into a world that pursues aesthetics. Good. Use it to lure our patient as well. Lure him to yearn for appreciation from others. Lure him to desire the beauty that you’ve taught the world [14]. Lure him to desire what you’ve determined as good. Remember the YOLO trend that you’ve set earlier? Yes. Use it to lure our patient into the mindset that if he doesn’t do as others did, he will regret.

Oh, one more thing. Remember how you have promoted the attributes of our Enemy within our collective patients and taught them to worship these attributes? I must say those are pretty well done. Continue to promote the worship of these vaguely conceptualized concepts such as “love”, “rights”, and “feelings” [16]. On this note, I’ve also noticed that within the patient, he is starting to question himself if he’s “born this way” [17]. I love how you taught them this phrase. You know what to do now that our patient is hooked onto trying to discern between facts and feelings [18]. Very soon, with a little bit of help, feelings will turn into reality for our patient. We can help him make feelings permanent [19]. Trust me. And when feelings become the measure of truth, we know the Enemy has lost His stronghold within our patient [20].

The show is only going to get better. But I’ve got to warn you this. Act fast. Though our Enemy will not act during this period of time, He will when the time is ripe [21]. I do not know when He decides to do what He does, but He will do what He says He will [22]. During then, work for us will be the toughest. With this, I urge you to act quickly, following the tips that I’ve given you to assure success.

The time is ticking. Our prize is there for us to take. Remember, glory is ours when we’ve won.

Yours,
Lucifer.
