How Satan Feels about the Bible

Jonathan Edwards:
The Devil has ever shown a mortal spite and hatred towards that holy book, the Bible: he has done all that has been in his power to extinguish that light, and to draw men off from it: he knows that 'tis that light by which his kingdom of darkness is to be overthrown. . . . Every text is a dart to torment the old serpent: he has felt the stinging smart thousands of times; therefore he is enraged against the Bible, and hates every word in it.
--Distinguishing Marks of a Work of the Spirit of God, in Works, Yale ed., 4:254

'Every text is a dart.'
