From the book: The Shepherd’s Staff, sect. B1
>> Satan’s purpose is to bring us into feelings of both doom and despair. He wants us to think that God has cut us off and that we have little hope for future. If he can’t take us this far, he will seek to keep us under an uneasy cloud of divine disapproval. His desire is to so weaken our faith, that we feel we aren’t strong enough spiritually to face him in warfare.
>> “If our hearts condemn us not, then we have faith towards God”. If our heart is heavy with condemnation, our faith will be weak or we will be without any faith. Without faith, we will not fight! That is why the devil wants: a Christian who will not fight or resist.
