    Just finished a book on Satan's evangelistic strategies and although from 1989 much of the content is still very relevant today, except these days Satan has more strategies, and more of the culture has been won by Satan's evangelists. But honestly how often do you hear sermons on Satan these days? How often on Spiritual warfare? Why or why not? It seems that many are indifferent and ignorant of his schemes as so few churches teach on the topics mentioned in this book.

    Are you aware of what the following are?

    Pantheism
    Reincarnation
    Moral Relativism
    Esotericism

    Can someone tell me why Satan loves psychology? Why satan loves to give people better paying jobs, and all the things, and sex that they desire?

    Its a philosophical question and requires thinking.

    Sorry. That rules me out, but I'll try to follow as the thread progresses (if I can keep up).

    The Wizard: Why, anybody can have a brain. That's a very mediocre commodity! Every pusillanimous creature that crawls on the earth or slinks through slimy seas has a brain! Back where I come from, we have universities, seats of great learning where men go to become great thinkers. And when they come out, they think deep thoughts — and with no more brains than you have. But! They have one thing you haven't got! A diploma! Therefore, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Universita Committeeatum E Pluribus Unum, I hereby confer upon you the honorary degree of Th.D.

    Scarecrow: "Th.D."?

    The Wizard: That's, er, "Doctor of Thinkology".

    Scarecrow: I haven't got a brain... only straw.

    Dorothy: How can you talk if you haven't got a brain?

    Scarecrow: I don't know... But some people without brains do an awful lot of talking... don't they?

    Dorothy: Yes, I guess you're right.

    I've always wondered why the scarecrow is the one that says, "I've got a plan" to get into the Wizard's inner sanctum, when he is the one in the movie that doesn't have a brain....?

    Maybe the Scarecrow was a former community organizer

    Where there's one there are more...a flock of scarecrows. Or was it a flock of seagulls ...yes, bad hair people, I remember...it was a flock of seagulls. I think it's called a party of scarecrows, not a flock.
