The following outline and discussion questions have been prepared to accompany my weekend sermon on April 11/12, “Fooled by Satan" (2 Corinthians 11:1–11). The questions can be used for discussion in small groups or for personal reflection.

Outline

  1. Divine Jealousy (v. 2)
  2. Divine Marriage (v. 2)
  3. Satanic Seduction (vv. 3–4)

Main Point: Receive Paul’s words as God’s passionate plea for a pure devotion to Christ.

I wish you would bear with me in a little foolishness. Do bear with me! For I feel a divine jealousy for you, since I betrothed you to one husband, to present you as a pure virgin to Christ. But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes and proclaims another Jesus than the one we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or if you accept a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it readily enough.

I, Paul, myself entreat you, by the meekness and gentleness of Christ—I who am humble when face to face with you, but bold toward you when I am away!—I beg of you that when I am present I may not have to show boldness with such confidence as I count on showing against some who suspect us of walking according to the flesh. For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds.

Jim Elliot (1927–1956) wrote, “The devil has made it his business to monopolize on three elements: noise, hurry, crowds … Satan is quite aware of the power of silence.”

—Quoted by Burk Parsons in Tabletalk, January 2013

"One little word will fell him!"

John 12:31
Now is the judgment of this world, now shall the ruler of this world be cast out.

1 John 3:8
The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil.

Hebrews 2:14
Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same nature, that through death he might destroy him who has the power of death, that is, the devil.

Why Satan Is Left on Earth

Part of the problem of evil is the problem of why Satan is given so much freedom to harm the world, when God has the right and power to throw him in the pit. God will one day do away with Satan altogether (Revelation 20:3, 10). That will be no injustice to Satan. Nor would it be unjust for God to do it today. So why doesn't He, in view of how much misery Satan causes?
