If I Were the Devil
The dodge commercial that bastardized one of Pauls speeches for their marketing purposes reminded me of one of his older recordings. it changed over the years but I think I found the original transcript from 1965:

"If I were the Devil . . . I mean, if I were the Prince of Darkness, I would of course, want to engulf the whole earth in darkness. I would have a third of its real estate and four-fifths of its population, but I would not be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree, so I should set about however necessary to take over the United States. I would begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.” “Do as you please.” To the young, I would whisper, “The Bible is a myth.” I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that what is bad is good, and what is good is “square”. In the ears of the young marrieds, I would whisper that work is debasing, that cocktail parties are good for you. I would caution them not to be extreme in religion, in patriotism, in moral conduct. And the old, I would teach to pray. I would teach them to say after me: “Our Father, which art in Washington” . . .

If I were the devil, I’d educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting so that anything else would appear dull an uninteresting. I’d threaten T.V. with dirtier movies and vice versa. And then, if I were the devil, I’d get organized. I’d infiltrate unions and urge more loafing and less work, because idle hands usually work for me. I’d peddle narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. And I’d tranquilize the rest with pills. If I were the devil, I would encourage schools to refine yound intellects but neglect to discipline emotions . . . let those run wild. I would designate an athiest to front for me before the highest courts in the land and I would get preachers to say “she’s right.” With flattery and promises of power, I could get the courts to rule what I construe as against God and in favor of pornography, and thus, I would evict God from the courthouse, and then from the school house, and then from the houses of Congress and then, in His own churches I would substitute psychology for religion, and I would deify science because that way men would become smart enough to create super weapons but not wise enough to control them.

If I were Satan, I’d make the symbol of Easter an egg, and the symbol of Christmas, a bottle. If I were the devil, I would take from those who have and I would give to those who wanted, until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. And then, my police state would force everybody back to work. Then, I could separate families, putting children in uniform, women in coal mines, and objectors in slave camps. In other words, if I were Satan, I’d just keep on doing what he’s doing.

Paul Harvey, Good Day."

Then the updated version on youtube:





He is pretty much on the money with everything. Whether or not it's the devil idk, I think it has more to do with peoples nature to take the easy road. Societal pressure to live the right way is eroding quickly.

RE: If I Were the Devil
this is pretty much in line with the communist /masonic infiltration of the Church.

the devil is simply something that is against Christ.

Quote: I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.” “Do as you please.”

this is the essence of the occult.

Just do what you want to do.. follow your carnal desires. these guys are trying to bring us back to some primal simplicity.

that whole adam and eve story is so rich with allegory and meaning it's unbelievable.

jordan maxwell is right.. if you look at the bible allegorically it tells you a lot about the state of the world.

I think moral decay is the biggest problem facing our society. People are losing their identities in modern society b/c they don't hold themselves to any standard.

RE: If I Were the Devil
these people believe that when Lucifer convinced EVE to eat from the tree of knowledge.. he was the liberator.. or the light bringer.

People will be unhappy because nothing is sacred.

If you like SEX.. it's better to have some taboos on it.. it's MORE EXCITING.

they say catholics have more exciting sex lives because of all the shame associated with sex. HAHA
