Священник Андрей Ковалёв

Evil Whispers.

Life's steady beat begins with God,
One may believe or not.
One has to like the art a lot,
To love dance of the heart.

We must maintain this Divine craft,
May it be easy or be hard
One has to like the art a lot,
To imitate this part.

If you successful in that -
Heart would be nice and hot.
One has to like the Art a lot
To draw the lucky card.

But if the Death outsmarts you,
And catches you off guard...
One has to like the art a lot -
Dance out of your heart.

The Cunning of the Devil.

Satan, in Aramaic literally - 'opposer', doesn't just come out and say it. He, often times, starts with a true statement - to give his scheme more credibility. Then, he slowly starts to draw our attention from God to something else, like 'art', which, in itself is pretty good, but not necessarily God, and much more neutral.

Eventually, satan begins to show his own crafty 'face' though still imitating good values.

Our attention is fixed not on God, while some trait of a doubt is introduced - 'if you successful,' and even then - concentration is not on God but on one's earthly values, 'Heart would be nice and hot'. Again, concentration is drawn away from God, switched from 'The Goal' to 'means' (art of whatever, as long as it's not God), and, at the same time, some supporting un-Godly ideas, such as 'luck' are introduced.

Finally, Death comes forward more real than ever and states: oh well, since it came to that, at least do it proudly - like a man, 'dance out of your heart'

And then - you are it.

[37] Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
[38] This is the first and great commandment. (Matt 22:37-38)

[33] But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (Matt 6:33)
