8 Anti-Mormon Tactics That Satan Uses To Attack The Latter-day Saints
Satan is the father of lies and deception. He has many titles including the cunning one. Satan is master of language and convincing. After all, he was able to sway a third of the host of heaven to follow him. Whereas we do not normally study Satan it is wise to learn the tactics he is using against the Saints! President Ezra Taft Benson taught in General Conference:
“A study of Satan’s methods can alert us to his seductions.”
Ezra Taft Benson
With that as the context, let’s take a look 8 Anti-Mormon tactics that Satan uses to attack the Latter-day Saints so that we can resist them!
1st. Half truths.
One of the biggest misconceptions about Satan is that he always tells bald face lies. Lies that are 100% untrue. But Satan is far wiser than that. Satan’s most powerful lies are the ones where he mingles with lies with something that is true. Like in Genisis 3:3-4 when Satan tempted Eve to eat the forbidden fruit, he told Eve, “Ye shall not surely die” (lie) but “ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil” (true).
His goal is to keep us from understanding the truth. What is truth? The Lord explained in the Doctrine and Covenants as the following.
24 And truth is knowledge of things as they are, and as they were, and as they are to come;
25 And whatsoever is more or less than this is the spirit of that wicked one who was a liar from the beginning.
Satan is always trying to deceive us, even if he must use something that is true, but wrapped in a lie as bait! Just like a skilled fisher wraps a hook with a fly, Satan will try to give you part a half truth wrapped in a lie.
