The serpent still lives in the mouths of those playing kind and wise. Still lives in those pretending to be God. Those who feign humility but live with pride. Those who wield power no man should have. Those whose resolve is to destroy.

What shall we as believers do?

Forgive them? Would Jesus himself have shown them grace? Does he really ask us to forgive the devil?

Just keep following Jesus and his ways—he who defeats evil with his love. The righteous will live. But those with evil intent will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
