How to Get Used by the Dark Side (Article)

Updated: Feb 23, 2022

Soaking just enough life out of someone to gain big resources; letting the consequences of that gain fall on those being drained; leaving the people who get used with a false sense of reward; Big business does it. High school cliques do it. But the one at the head of it all; he is, for now, all but condemned for his leadership role in the greatest, hidden pyramid scheme the world has ever taken part in.

Where's my (the writer's) straight Jacket?

Traded it for armor once I got sucked into reality. I had many arguments toward spiritual life when I was an atheist. But for every one thing I found to support my atheism, I later found a hundred to support the existence of God, the devil and the war that ensues. Thats a conservative estimate and no exaggeration.

If you’re reading this and your reaction is something like “yep, already knew about the war”, congratulations; you’ve got a shot at a freedom that some may never know. If you’re thinking that it’s outside what you know, but are willing to open your mind to it, same thing; let this help you reach toward that spiritual future. If you think I’m a nut job and need some happy pills, I don’t say these things as an argument to you. I say them out of lengthy experience, extensive study, love and hope for everyone’s freedom.

I say it because there is a great connection between you, I and all of us. It's engrained in the heart and cannot be removed, even when someone spends years conditioning us to believe so. It may feel severed or non existent, but after years of study and testing, I’ll put what little I own on the idea that the system of connection is not gone, it’s just hidden. And this, my brothers and sisters; this is where getting used starts, amongst the unfair illusion that our most natural, most potentially celebrated and most beneficial connections do not exist.

"Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken."
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 KJV

I didn’t just learn about how humans are webbed together from the Bible and other Christians. I’ve spent years of testing what I used to call theory, using my own time and life to gain personal answers. At an earlier point I called faith a fairy tale. Until more and more undeniable points of information were both sought by me and forced into my life, by life, I paid little attention. I wrote off the story of the devil VS God’s kids as anything but truth.

You don't just have to have faith

There are those who know from experience that we are all steeped in potential deception. There are those of us who investigate negativity as if it were a machine, waiting to be blueprinted and exposed. We’ve investigated joy in the same way. We’ve investigated the sources of both, not just until we found belief or disbelief, but until we often experienced mental and physical exhaustion. Anyone can do this.

"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened."
Matthew 7:7-8 KJV

So when I or others who have knowledge of this stuff say it’s real, we stand on solid ground. Telling us that a damaging and deadly war between good and evil doesn’t exist; it’s like going back in time to tell John Crapper that the idea of a toilet is ludicrous. Trust me on this; I can safely tell you, belief in that statement will save you from living with big, smelly piles of [something] all over your life.

Confusion, hidden by the imitation of certainty

When you don’t realize the different sides of an opposition are there, you don’t discern between a wolf in sheep’s clothing, a sheep in wolves’ clothing, and a wolf standing there with a an AK47. The sheep might look like fools, the wolves might look like friends, and the bullets look about as threatening as candy.

When sin looks harmless because those who know its dangers are made to look silly for such belief; it becomes a Trojan Horse. When Christ looks like a fairy tale, our greatest weapon against darkness appears to be useless. And when a lack of belief cuts us off from our right to an eternal future, we’re left with blank spots that can be filled by those who have nasty intentions. They know what we're looking for, especially when we don't know where to truly find it.

The enemy is incredibly efficient and incredibly cunning

Think of anything you do well. It can be a profession, a hobby or anything else. Years of experience give you insight. Your skills are much more efficient than many other people’s. How long did it take you to become advanced or even an expert? You’ve had that long to learn not only the basics, but the subtle, little details that put you steps ahead. So how well do you think you could run such an activity if you had thousands of years to study and practice?

This is what the devil has, more experience and a higher set of skills than any human can even begin to imagine. And, just as important and extensive as his ability to attack in uncountable ways; there is his ability to hide himself and his attacks in plain sight. As surely as one of us can seek and find, another can remain unaware of a system that tries to put its claws into everything, human or otherwise. Here's a little lesson in "War for Beginners"; it's incredibly smart to keep your adversary unprepared, by making sure they don't sense you, even when you're right next to them.

"For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light."
2 Corinthians 11:13-15 KJV

How to get used

"He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."
John 8:44 KJV

Whether or not you know about God and his enemy, you can bank on this statement; to not be aware of both sides of any surrounding war is to live in no-man’s land. To live in no-man’s land is to be game for either side. And in the case of God and the devil, there’s only one side with the standard operating procedure of using you then tossing you into the fire. The other, being God, has a welcome package that’s rich in eternal reward.

Why God, Why?

One of the greatest questions posed by man is this; if there is a God, why does he let so many bad things happen? One of the many answers is this; God allows the devil to demonstrate what the devil believes is the right way to do things. God does this so people can make a choice. Therefore we have a choice and we have to clearly demonstrate it.

Know the Bible. Know God. Hold yourself responsible for the improvement of your own actions and words. But for the sympathy of yourself and others, know that there is ALWAYS a party of those who try unimaginably hard to influence such behavior. Use compassion and love in every decision you make. Or,

Get used by the dark side.

Oh by the way, Darth; that insanely evil mouth-breather with the dark cape, the mean looking black mask and the permanent asthma attack; he’s not really anyone's father. Neither is chance, neither is evolution, and neither is the one who leads the rebellion against God.
