These three attributes reflect the components of a man’s life. They each represent strategic points in our life. The aim of the enemy is to make us ineffective in all three areas. Burden us with pain and failure from our past. It influences our present and causes us to question the future. Satan has weaved deceptive devices into the fabric of society. The aim of vices of sin is to condition our heart that blinds and saddles us with pain, uncertainty that life has dumped on us.
