Sizing up the Enemy II
Satan and his followers are superior to the body of Christ in intellect. None of us has any hope of matching up with his brilliance or education. The Bible presents Satan as extraordinarily smart; again, God said he was perfect in wisdom (Ezekiel 28:12). Satan’s intellect includes both book knowledge and field experience.
Many of our people aren’t too smart even as humans go, and others won’t take any time to study. Some don’t even believe that thinking, learning, and study are worthwhile spiritual activities. Many Christians would rather learn gospel songs with not a word of the gospels in it, instead of reading the gospel. The contrast between our confusion and Satan’s sharp, well-informed forces is pitiful. Intellectually, Christians are hopelessly outclassed; without gaining the desired wisdom from God.
