All Christians are being fought by the devil whose mission is to steal, kill and destroy our relationship with God. It is important to know Satan’s schemes so we can understand how to fight him. His main methods or schemes are Deception, Offenses, Temptation and Accusation. If he can get us offended to the point that we hold a grudge or do not forgive someone, then he has us caught in his trap. He is a tempter and temptation appeals to people with a view of themselves that is too high. They think they can do whatever they want to do and don’t see the negative consequences of their choice. But one of the devil's main methods of destruction is accusation. This appeals to people with a view too low of themselves that don’t see the love and mercy of God, but only see God as Holy and Just. These people that succumb to accusation usually are full of guilt and shame. They suffer condemnation because of the accusations that they hear and receive into their lives. This guilt and condemnation usually leads to depression which leads to many self-destructive behaviors. We are to put on the whole armor of God to fight the devil, which is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
