“I think you are mistaking somewhat cultured/thoughtful people (Some of them anyway) for agents of the devil, all your arguments seem a little paranoid to me. Think of it this way, "test everything and hold tight to that which is good." maybe they are just in the testing phase, trying to think for themselves. I think some of your writers could stand to be a little more flexible and varied in their interpretations, rather than trying to stuff every pigeon in the same hole.
All this fear mongering seems to be just as much about self gratification as it is about informing vulnerable people. goodfight.org's devotion and diligence is commendable.
However I believe that blind, aggressive almost frenzied faith to this degree, can only detract from the opportunity and experience that God sent us here to realise. Or do you really think he sent us here just for the exquisite chance to bury our head in the sand.
Many thanks for your time,

Good Fight Response:
Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I do agree with you to a certain degree, however, I always like to hear specific examples. Can you perhaps provide me with an example that supports your thoughts?
I do believe there are many artists that are ignorant to their ways and practices and sometimes promote evil things out of ignorance; however, even if the person is not promoting evil knowingly as well as intentionally it does not mean that they are not being used by Satan, even if it is in ignorance.
For example, If I strapped a bomb to myself and threatened people or I would actually go through with the threat and end up killing myself and others as well as injure many others - and all along I do this, completely convinced in my mind that "it's all a joke", "I don't really mean it" or perhaps I'm simply ignorant/deceived into believing that bombs aren't real. The bottom line is, I'm still being used for evil. No matter how ignorant/deceived I may be, the fact of the matter is, I'm hurting people, thus I was used as an instrument for evil. As strange or perhaps graphic as this analogy may seem - it's nothing compared to the real danger of what Satan desires to do to a person's soul...
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like
a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. –1 Peter 5:7
After reading the verses below, stop and think of just how your logic of judgment would define John the Baptist, Jesus and The Apostle John…
Now in those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the wilderness of Judea, saying, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." –Matthew 3:1-2
"He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him." –John 3:36
John the Baptist
"But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned." –Matthew 12:36-37
Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son. –1 John 2:22
the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. –1 John 3:8
We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one. –1 John 5:19
-The Apostle John
Look forward to hearing from you again.
