Romance and Sexuality -3- Relationships

The previous section was the image-based attack.  The relation-based attack focuses on interactions between the two genders.  We already have their heads swimming with images and standards of what an attractive man or woman should be.  Our next move is to muddy the waters concerning what kind of man or woman they should date/mate with.  Their reasons for choosing a mate with particular characteristics vary from “that’s what they deserve” to getting affirmation of their own manhood or womanhood.  Note the common denominator of their reasons for choosing:  the focus of the relationship is on the self.  That is the brimstone standard for infernal relationships.  A tempter can manage with a relationship focused on the other, but it creates a sort of selflessness as a byproduct that can give the Enemy a foothold.  The one thing that we absolutely don’t want is for the relationship to be centered on the Enemy.

Selfishness is a vital component of a relationship because it is the foundation on which you can build any number of dysfunctions.  The other part of the couple becomes an objectified source of gratification.  This dynamic is more visible in some relationships than others, and we will further clarify it by examining two relationship types:

“Say My Name” Relationships – This kind of relationship is something of a tempter classic.  The human goal is to use the other person to bolster one’s status as a man or a woman.  This relationship is one they use to convince themselves that they are successful as a man or woman.  We can thank our propagandists for setting the stage for this kind of relationship by convincing the flesh creatures that a man or woman is only complete if they have the “right” member of the opposite sex by their side.  We are also able to graft into their minds the concept of the trophy wife or husband.  Our infernal standards of what is or isn’t desirable are most effectively deployed in this type of relationship.

Consider the stereotypical dynamic of a cheerleading captain dating the star quarterback of the football team:  whether you look at it from the perspective of the male or the female, the relationship centers squarely upon status.  Can you see how each uses the other as a mark of success as a man or a woman?  Notice how one human is using the other as a means to an end rather than being an end in and of him or herself.  This depersonalization is exactly what we want to see in a relationship.

Now imagine if this kind of relationship were broken, what might the effects on the flesh creature be?  The relationship was their way of knowing that they are a successful man or woman; if that is taken away, so is part of their security.  This newfound insecurity can, and should, be exploited to the fullest extent.  One way to go about this is to bring them so far down that they question whether they really are what a man or woman should be.  Care needs to be taken not to leave the Enemy any room to exercise His influence here to answer their question.  The humans must take our answer or not find one at all.  The other option is to play off of the unpleasantness of their insecurity and get them to rush into another relationship just like the last.

“Identity” Relationships – This variety of relationship is a mutation of the “Say My Name” relationship.  The difference between the two is that the identity relationship is aimed at securing the answer to the fundamental question of “Am I a man/woman?”  The “say my name” relationship was a question of degree (i.e. “how successful of a man or woman am I?”)  The identity relationship centers on the question of being in the category at all.  In this case, again, we can see the human-as-a-means dynamic at work.  The human goal in this relationship is to know that they are a “real” man or a “real” woman.  This sort of pathetic wretch cannot be sure if he or she is what they are supposed to be unless they have a member of the opposite sex in a “romantic” relationship with them.

The great irony of this type of relationship is that what they are seeking cannot be found in the place they are looking.  Our espionage indicates that current opinion in the Enemy’s camp is that only the Enemy can confirm what it means to be a “real” man or woman and if the human meets the criteria.  Such an answer is expected, given that everything there seems to revolve around Him.  That is just another reason why Our Father Below was moved to rebellion.  After all, who could put up with such narcissism besides those sycophant seraphim?  Needless to say, there is no cause to worry that they might actually find what they are looking for as long as they are looking to the opposite gender for the answer.  That is simply not information they have to give.

Breaking a relationship of this kind provides us with some absolutely delightful possibilities.  When a human with this kind of relationship loses it, they are effectively being told that they are not really a man or a woman.  Once again, we are presented with two options of how to deal with their insecurity and confusion.  First, there is the option of using their emotions to push them back into a similar relationship.  The second option is one that promises greater accomplishment.  In the “say my name” type of relationship, we had the option to bring them to this “identity” stage in which they require a member of the opposite sex in order to know if they are a man or woman.  In this case, however, we are starting with the human wondering if he or she is a real man or woman.  We can use the same operation as before and, this time, break them on a fundamental level.  We are not talking about merely confusing their identity. We are talking about a blow to their spirit that will forever be a point of reckoning for them.

It is now standard procedure for us to lay the groundwork for this maneuver during childhood via deprivation of the instruction or confirmation of masculinity or femininity.  Thus, we have already primed them for the kind of blows we can deal by severing particular relationships.  If these are properly dealt at the right times, a competent tempter can stir up bitterness and self-hate that will take years to settle down (if ever) and severely compromise the wretch’s ability to have romantic relationships.  The reason why this status is so prized in fiendish circles is that the inner workings of the flesh creatures are interconnected.  Cripple one and the rest will suffer.  Thus, a shutdown of the human’s ability to have romantic relationships will have a global effect on all of their other relationships.

However, this operation doesn’t come without risk.  You must know by now that the Enemy does in fact call some of the wretches to life as a bachelor or bachelorette.  Always be certain that you are moving them away from the Enemy so that your hubris doesn’t lead you into ignorantly going along with His plans.  Those foolish enough to do so deserve their punishment.

Those are the two best examples of the other-as-object-of-gratification dynamics in relationships.  For the purposes of this text, we will limit the discussion of relationships to these two.  The important thing for you to take away from this section is the idea that in any relationship, not just the romantic variety, you are to lead the human to focus on him or herself. Do not allow the Enemy to become the center of any of the flesh creature’s relationships.  Should you allow that to happen, you will find that all of your best attacks will only yield temporary emotional results.

Romance and Sexuality -2- The Infernal Lover

As a brief review of the media will reveal, our propagandists have been more than successful in selling our brand of romance and sexuality to the humans.  Our greatest achievement in this particular area is the creation of what call the “infernal lover”.  In brief, this construct is nothing more than what we have told the flesh creatures that they want.  There are numerous advantages to this approach.  On an individual level, it raises all kinds of image issues.  Everyone wants to be that person they saw on TV or in the magazine.  Whole industries and subcultures have been spawned from this phenomenon.  The inevitable result of their trying to be someone else is that they eventually forget who they are as an individual with individual talents, tastes, weaknesses, etc.  At that point, we have already achieved a minor victory in that they are no longer being what the Enemy created them to be but what we want them to be.  The misery of such a position is of the more delicious variety.  They may appear to be “living the high life” and may appear to be experiencing happiness, but rest assured that (if you’ve done your job correctly) those are only appearances.  The persona which they are showing to the world is nothing but a hollow shell; it is empty and comfortless inside.  The experience that they claim is “happiness” is anything but that.  “Happiness” is merely the word we’ve taught them to use to put a positive spin on things.

If you have any understanding, you can see where this is going:  we establish a standard of attractiveness that few, if any, of them can achieve and thereby throw the whole lot of them into the dirt.  Those that fit our image less than others are even more distraught with their appearances.  Those that fit our image more than others will still be desperate and insecure because they still won’t quite measure up to our standards.  Those that we use to set our standards will appear to have it made, but they will be so focused on maintaining that standard that they will have no room for any real happiness.  You would do well to note that this standard is not static, but can change to fit the tastes of the time.

Romance and Sexuality – 1

As you should well know, when the Enemy first concocted those detestable hybrids called humans, He created male and female varieties.  This division of genders is quite confusing, but it can be just as confusing for the humans as for us.  The problem is that the two genders are different, but similar.  One typically finds that, psychologically, there are more differences within genders than between genders.  The most useful way of understanding this state of affairs is to liken it to the Enemy’s claim to be “three-in-one”:  one entity expressed in three distinct persons.  Similarly, the human creature is expressed in two persons:  male and female.  If these two genders coexist and work together as one, the result is not only distasteful but also unbearably troublesome to tear down.  However, the task of destroying this harmony is not impossible.  You need only look as far as the example set by Our Father Below when he went about bringing down the first of the filthy vermin.  As long as they know who they are in the Enemy, they will be able to put up a strong defense to your attacks.  What you must do, then, is force them out of this mental/spiritual tower.

You see, Our Father Below’s first brilliant move was to approach the woman with his questions about the Enemy’s decree.  Do not fall into the same intellectual pit as some of the flesh creatures and think that this has something to do with the woman being in some way inferior to the man.  Rather, it had everything to do with the roles of the man and the woman in the garden.  The man had been charged to be the moral and spiritual leader in the garden.  It was to the man that the Enemy gave His decree not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.  The woman was charged with helping and supporting the man.  The Enemy did not see it to be good that the man should be alone in his task.  The two are given complementary roles as each would support the other.  As long as the man and woman worked together as a unit, their connection to the Enemy would be as troublesome to attack as a Roman phalanx.

When Our Father Below approached the woman first, he upset the established order by addressing the woman as the spiritual and moral leader and the man as the supporter and helper.  In so doing, Our Father Below moved the upcoming battle to ground of his choosing.  The humans now found themselves distanced from the Enemy and from each other as the woman attempted to fill a role that she that she had not been given and the man withdrew from the situation altogether.  Again, do not miss the subtle nature of this movement by thinking it has to do with the man and woman’s respective abilities.  Each is equally dangerous to our designs.  The goal in reversing their roles was to lead them away from the Enemy’s influence and security.

You would do well to carefully study this maneuver.  It is rare that a tempter can get into a human’s head and suggest a transgression so directly.  Despite the flesh creatures’ inherent disposition to sin, it takes careful preparations to get them to follow through.  However, as you can see from the current example, the proper set up can get even those who have literally walked with the Enemy and known only Him to turn their backs.

With the set up complete (moving the humans away from their Enemy-given identity), all that remained to be done was to plant the seeds of doubt and the rest, as the humans so are fond of saying, is history.  As you can probably tell by now, the key when tempting in the area of romance and sexuality is maneuvering the humans into a position where they are uncomfortable with themselves; to take away the security blanket the Enemy gives, as it were.  Such preparation is what opens the door to further temptations.
