Never trust a con man. A con man never gives you what he promises. A con man will promise you a reward, or he’ll promise you something better than what he’s trying to con you out of. He asks you for something that seems small, and then he promises you the world. But there’s a reason why they’re called con men, because there’s always a consequence to trusting a con man.
A con man doesn’t give you what he promises. He gives you what he hides. He gives you what he hides. What he doesn’t tell you, that’s what you get. That’s the consequence.
Right now, the devil is conning you, whatever that con is for you. He’s promising you some kind of reward or some kind of gain. Say that awful thing or do that awful thing. You’ll feel better. That’s what he promises.
You’ll feel better. You’ll feel good. You’ll feel complete. He’s conning some of you out of trying to be holy. And that con usually starts with, don’t try so hard, relax.
He’s conning some of you into leaving the church, or worse, he cons the faithful into disunity. The devil is a con man, and he’s a very good one too. When he approaches you with his seductive proposals, tell him to shut his mouth in the name of Jesus. Use those words. Tell him to shut his mouth in the name of Jesus, and then walk away.
You walk away by turning your mind and attention away from him. Don’t do business with a con man. Do business with God. He’s wealthy, he’s honest, that he’s generous. This is basic sense, my friends.
