Chapter 31 - Being
It has been said that a Christian is like a man asleep in the back seat of a speeding car. If he suddenly awakes, he sees someone he trusts driving and can go back to sleep. A man without God is like a man asleep in the back seat of a speeding car who suddenly awakes and sees no one behind the steering wheel and clambers over the seat to take control himself.
Some of the contrast between these two views is captured in Proverbs;
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. - Proverbs 3:5-6
Satan first tempted Eve by an appeal to her own understanding.
And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. - Genesis 3:6
Trusting God does not come easy. Most of childhood is spent learning 'if I do this...I can get that'. Satan takes this integral part of human leaning and uses his deceptions to extend it into areas that logic should tell us are not possible like changing climate or ending hunger and poverty.
Satan has many people eager to believe his deceptions because they offer a balm to the anxieties generated by reality. Diminishing resources, hostile hordes, increasing debt, and decreasing morality all loom at the periphery of vision. However, being convinced that these things are not really a threat or are being solved can allow a person the comfort of his individual pursuits.
