Sifting Through the Devils lies

“Be Sober, be vigilant; because your adversary, the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.
-1 Peter 5:8

Satan knows us personally and has had 6000 years to plan how to draw us away- Father Lehi taught us in 2 Nephi 2:27 that Satan wants us to be “Miserable like unto himself”

In Lesson 28 – Resisting Sin
we discuss some of the purposes Satan has on earth
-wants to destroy our agency
-wants to gain the power of God
-he wants to deceive us
-he wants us to be captive like he is

We also discussed what some of his tricks are, it is important to know how he works and what his purpose is so that we might be able to see clearly

I think is is so effective when there is an Mutual night based around a Sunday lesson

I thought it would be fun to put it out there in a way the kids could relate to

 Satan’s lies
-Yolo (Have fun now & repent later)
-If there is a Hell… (There is no Hell)
-I go to church… (as long as I am going to church I am ok)
-What? (There is no Devil or God)
-Everyone is doing it 
-Ever been… (It’s all made up, make believe)
-Once wont’ kill you (You are missing out)
-With everything… (You are nobody special, he does not listen)
-Quit being to hard on yourself (God will make an exception with you because there are so many other worse people than you)

I found the twitter idea at:

At Girls camp there was a young women who gave a short talk about some struggles she had bee going through, she bore testimony that her parents and young women leaders where right in the things they had been teaching her- she bore testimony that friends do influence you no matter how strong you are, she bore testimony that living the commandments brought her more joy and happiness then the other way she had been living.  This was huge for the young women who where hearing this from someone their age.  
I know that with the spirit we can teach these truths and the spirit will testify that they are true, but when they hear it from someone their own age it is very powerful.
