The author has been prompted to write this book in order to illustrate some of the snares which Satan uses to infiltrate the human mind.
Adam, the first man, was created by God in his own image without sin.
Satan tempted Eve to eat the forbidden fruit of the Garden of Eden. Later on Adam was convinced by Eve to eat the same fruit.
God was angry with them. "So the Lord God expelled him from the garden in Eden to cultivate the ground from which he had been taken. When he drove the man out, he placed on the eastern side of the garden in Eden angelic sentries who used the flame of a whirling sword to guard the way to the tree of life." (Genesis 3:23-24).
As a result of sin, the human mind has deviated from the spirit of God.
The Bible describes the human mind thus:-
"The human mind is more deceitful than anything else. It is incurably bad. Who can understand it?" (Jeremiah 17:9).
Our Lord Jesus Christ describes Satan as "The thief who comes only to steal and kill and destroy,” (John 10:10) and people who are under Satan’s influence thus: -
"You people are from your father the devil, and you want to do what your father desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not uphold the truth, because there is no truth in him. Whenever he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, because he is a liar and the father of lies." (John 8:44).
To illustrate on how some snares are perpetrated by Satan, some stories have been written. The stories, except for those mentioned as real life stories, do not refer to any persons living or dead and do not refer to any particular real events that have happened.
