The Two Trees by David K Bernard

Really since the dawn of times there has always been two choices. The way of life, and the way of death. An epic battle has been going on between God and a powerful, evil spirit, Satan the devil. The highway of the upright is to depart from evil. He who keeps his way preserves his soul. Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded. Here are three ways that will help us follow the voice of the Good Shepherd instead of the Wolf in sheep’s clothing. In particular, Satan’s voice always has these three qualities.

1. It Contradicts God’s Commandments. Just like Adam and Eve in the Garden, Satan always lures us away from God’s Commandments.
2. It Creates Anxiety Rather Than Peace. Satan seeks to divide and conquer and in the process he creates great confusion in our life.
3. It Accuses us and Brings us Down. Another key aspect of God’s voice is that He always seeks to affirm us and tell us about our beauty as children of God. The devil will try to convince us that we are terrible, horrible, awful human beings. He will do his worst to tell us that we are worthless, sinful, wretched men and women. After we have committed a sin, Satan will always tell us that God does not love us and that we are not worthy enough to be in Heaven. Satan is the Accuser.
