3 `I can resist everything except temptation.’ - Oscar Wilde



6 “As far as God goes, I’m a non-believer. But when it comes to the devil — well, that’s something else. The devil keeps advertising; the devil does lots of commercials.”


8 ‘Put on the full armour of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.’ - Ephesians 6:1-11 -

9 Why should we believe in the existence of the Devil?



12 `There are two equal and opposite errors into which we can fall about the devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence; the other is to believe and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them. They themselves are equally pleased by both errors.’ - CS Lewis

13 What are the Devil’s tactics?

14 “The thief comes to seek and kill…”

15 “…I have come that you may have life and life in its fullness.” - Jesus, John 10:10

16 Did God really say…?

17 ‘And the LORD God commanded the man, "You are free to eat from any tree in the garden”’; — and secondly he gave one prohibition – ‘”but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil”’ — and then thirdly there was a penalty – ‘“for when you eat of it you will surely die."’ - Genesis 2:16-17 -

18 ‘Did God really say you must not eat from any tree in the garden?’

19 ‘The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat from the trees in the garden, but God did say, `You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.'" “You will not surely die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you’ll be like God, knowing good and evil.”’ - Genesis 3:2-5 -

20 ‘When the woman saw the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some of it and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.’ - Genesis 3:6-7 -

21 ‘Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realised that they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.’ - Genesis 3:7 -

22 `Human beings are the only animals that blush, and the only animals that need to.‘ Mark Twain


24 ‘Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees in the garden.’ - Genesis 3:8 -

25 ‘I was afraid!’

26 ‘But the LORD God called to the man, “Where are you?”’

27 ‘There is NO condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.’

28 What is our position?

29 ‘…he has transferred us from the dominion of darkness to the kingdom of the Son he loves.’


31 ‘And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. - Colossians 2:15 -

32 `God permits evil in order to draw forth some greater good.’

33 How do we defend ourselves?

34 Ephesians 6

35 ‘Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled round your waist …’ - Ephesians 6:13-17 -

36 ‘Put on the breastplate of righteousness’

37 ‘… and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.’

38 ‘In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.’

39 ‘Put on the helmet of salvation.’

40 ‘Take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.’

41 How do we attack?

42 ‘And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.’

43 ‘Don’t be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.’

44 How can I make the most of the rest of my life?

45 What should we do?

46 ‘Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world.’

47 How do we do this?

48 Why should we do it?
