“Knock out sin, and the Enemy’s whole structure caves in.”

…But if you can convince him even now that ‘sin’ is an outdated concept of pre-modern psychology, we can recoup all our lost ground, and more.

But how can you keep him from noticing the obvious? Of course he’s a sinner. They all are; don’t they read the news? Sin is the only dogma of the Enemy’s Camp that can be proved just be reading the papers.

Here’s where the psychwar mavens in the Public Information Directorate have prepared the way for you. They’ve insinuated their arguments into the very fiber of the surrounding society and even into his Church. In fact, a surprising number of the creatures’ theologians and religious education ‘experts’ believe the only ‘sin’ is to believe in sin!

That’s the lynchpin. Knock out sin and the Enemy’s whole structure caves in. If there’s no sin, there’s no need for salvation, and thus the dogmas of the Incarnation, Atonement, Resurrection, Ascension and Second Coming can safely be filed under ‘mythology.’

Reader: Humph! This book sounds suspiciously like a shameless plagiarism of C.S. Lewis’ Screwtape Letters.

Author: It is! I have no shame about it, because I’m sure Lewis wanted such ‘plagiarisms.’ The Screwtape Letters invented a new genre, a new species; all I’m doing is breeding another specimen.
