Why do people do what they do? How do they descide what to do in a given situation? Does the Devil directly influence these answers? If so, how much? Well I think the best way to answer these questions is to look art myself. Most of what I say and do is automatic, based on habit and upbringing. Some, I stop and think about, but my conclusion is still based on upbringing and habits. So I guess I rarely conciusely descide what to do, it's all automated, then after each time I look back at the outcome then make a slight adjustment to my habit. Most of what happens is sub-conciuse. So what about devilish influences? Well how much am I influenced by God? A lot. So it's probably the same for non-believers only reversed. Another difrence is the devils try to cover thier tracks, God doesn't. Also, for me at least, it's not like I actually ask God at every turn "what should I do next", it's more like I think, "What does God want me to do?". I'm sure it's much the same for non-beleivers but instead of useing "devil" in place of "God" they use "I" because it sounds much better. Think about it. So, probaby, if I'm anything like other people, they do thing because it's ingrained into them from parents, friends, experiences and devils. I guess the next question is how do we change these in-grained responses? I know God wants us to. I guess the main thing is to take it out of automatic and into manual. More litterally, take the descicion makeing out of you sub-concience mind and into you concience mond. Then doing something about it once it's where you can change it. It's not easy but it must be done for you to be a healthy christian. How to properly do that is another documents.
