Slaves of Satan!

(Philpot, "The Master's Bounty, and the Servant's Obedience")

"Then they will come to their senses and escape from
 the Devil's trap. For they have been held captive by
 him to do whatever he wants.
" 2 Timothy 2:26

In our natural state, we are all the slaves of Satan!

We love our foul master, hug his chain, and delight in his
servitude, little thinking what awful wages are to follow.

This mighty conqueror has with him a numerous train of
captives! This haughty master, the 'god of this world', has
in his fiendish retinue, a whole array of slaves who gladly
do his behests. They obey him cheerfully, though he is
leading them down to the bottomless pit! For though he
amuses them while here in this world with a few toys
and baubles
, he will not pay them their wages until he
has enticed and flattered them into that ghastly gulf of
destruction, in which he himself has been weltering for

"Satan, the god of this evil world, has blinded the
 minds of those who don't believe." 2 Cor. 4:4
