I would gain control of the most powerful nation in the world;

I would delude their minds into thinking that they had come from
man’s effort, instead of God’s blessings;

I would promote an attitude of loving things and using people,
instead of the other way around;

I would dupe entire states into relying on gambling for their state

I would convince people that character is not an issue when it comes
to leadership;

I would make it legal to take the life of unborn babies;

I would make it socially acceptable to take one’s own life, and
invent machines to make it convenient;

I would cheapen human life as much as possible so that the life of
animals are valued more than human beings;

I would take God out of the schools, where even the mention of His
name was grounds for a lawsuit;


I would come up with drugs that sedate the mind and target the young,
and I would get sports heroes to advertise them;

I would get control of the media, so that every night I could pollute
the mind of every family member for my agenda;

I would attack the family, the backbone of any nation.

I would make divorce acceptable and easy, even fashionable. If the
family crumbles, so does the nation;

I would compel people to express their most depraved fantasies on
canvas and movie screens, and I would call it art;

I would convince the world that people are born homosexuals, and that
their lifestyles should be accepted and marveled;

I would convince the people that right and wrong are determined by a
few who call themselves authorities and refer to their agenda as
politically correct;

I would persuade people that the church is irrelevant and out of
date, and the Bible is for the naive;

I would dull the minds of Christians, and make them believe that
prayer is not important, and that faithfulness and obedience are

I guess I would leave things pretty much the way they are.
