In this presentation, we note that we can expect to be attacked by Satan just as Elizabeth Kindelmann was and so examine their characteristics to see how they are manifested in the Diary. We note that his attacks are:
- Always about self
- Subtle — often masking a more dangerous attack with a less dangerous but more blatant one
This leads to a brief treatment of how we overcome sin at its source, i.e., how we fight an offensive rather than defensive war against Satan and sin. We then walk through many accounts in the Diary to see these tactics at work. We conclude by emphasizing how we avoid Satan’s confusion by fixing on our eyes on God’s unending love for us — that God loves us, by grace, we love Him, and not much else matters.
