If I Were the Devil by Paul Harvey
Click the play button on this YouTube video to hear what Paul Harvey had to say.
I think Paul Harvey’s speech shows proof that the devil comes to kill steal and destroy. The devil will do anything to stop us from believing in God. Listen to the YouTube video above or even read the transcript below “If I were the devil.”If I Were the Devil by Paul Harvey (Script and Audio). #PaulHarvey #IfIWereTheDevil Click To Tweet
This is a script that was written by Paul Harvey. This is entitled “If I were the devil.” This was a warning for our nation. This was broadcasted April 3, 1965.
If I Were the Devil
If I were the Prince of Darkness I would want to engulf the whole earth in darkness.
I’d have a third of its real estate and four-fifths of its population, but I would not be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree. The
So I should set about however necessary, to take over the United States.
I would subvert the churches first.
I would begin with a campaign of whispers.
With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whispers to you as I whispered to Eve, “Do as you please.”
To the young I would whisper “The Bible is a myth.” I would convince them that “man created God,” instead of the other way around. I would confide that “what is bad is good and what is good is square.”
In the old I would teach to pray after me: “Our Father which art in Washington.”
And then I would get organized.
I’d educate authors on how to make lurid literature exciting so that so that anything else would appear dull and uninteresting.Trending
I’d threaten TV with dirtier movies and vise versa.
I’d peddle narcotics to whom I could, I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction, I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.
If I were the devil, I would soon have families at war with themselves, churches at war with themselves, and nations at war with themselves until each in its turn was consumed.
You know in 2021, this commentary is still so true for today too, just as it was back then!
With promises of higher ratings, I’d have mesmerizing media fanning the flames.
If I were the Devil, I would encourage schools to refine young intellects, but neglect to discipline emotions; let those run wild until before you knew it, you’d have to have drug-sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every school house door.
Within a decade, I’d have prisons overflowing. I’d have judges promoting pornography.
Soon I could evict God from the courthouse, then from the schoolhouse, and then from the houses of Congress.
And in his own churches I’d substitute psychology for religion and deify science.
I would lure priest and pastors into misusing boys and girls and church money.
If I were the devil, I’d make the symbol of Easter an egg and the symbol of Christmas a bottle.
If I were the Devil I’d take from those who have and give to those who want it until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious.
What do you bet I couldn’t get whole states to promote gambling as the way to get rich.
I would caution against extremes in hard work, in patriotism, in moral conduct.
I would convince the young that marriage is old-fashioned, that swinging is more fun, that what you see on TV is the way to be and thus I could undress you in public, and I could lure you into bed with diseases for which there is no cure.
In other words, If I were the devil, I’d just keep doing what he’s doing.Paul Harvey News and Comment
Growing up as a youth and to early/mid-adult I enjoyed listening to Paul Harvey news and comment. In 2014, Pastor Bob Neal, shared this in a sermon on Sunday, May 25, 2014. Here this commentary by Paul Harvey was written in the 1960’s. Does it not sound like its out of a newspaper today?
I always enjoyed how Paul Harvey ended his segments, he would end it by saying “Paul Harvey Good Day” and the other one I remember “And now you know the rest of the story.”
In 2014, I don’t believe the devil wanted this posted because he tried his best to prevent it by giving me errors as I went to click publish. But my God is stronger! God saw to it that it got published. (And I have been able to republished it too!)
