James Robison Offers A Helpful Chart On How To “Defeat The Enemy’s Plan”

Televangelist James Robison continues to position himself as a behind-the-scenes leader of the Religious Right’s political planning and mobilization for the upcoming presidential election. Today, Robison posted on his blog a chart from writer Wayne Grudem on how to “defeat the enemy’s plan” (read: Satan’s plans) in politics and “fulfill the will of God.”

During our recent Leadership Summit, Wayne Grudem, Ph.D., who is a professor at Phoenix Seminary and a gifted author, began to write what God revealed to him concerning the strategy and effectiveness of the enemy. He outlined the enemy’s tactics and contrasted them with the will of God as it relates to many issues of deep concern to everyone who understands the importance of faith, family and freedom. The information he shared was sobering, but true.

With God’s help, believers can defeat the enemy’s plan. We must join together to see hearts changed and fulfill the will of God. We can and must defeat the enemy’s strategy. Remember, we are not warring against flesh and blood, but against spiritual powers and hidden sinister forces of darkness and deception. Satan is the father of all lies.

Grudem’s chart contrasts “the enemy’s desired result” and “God’s desired result” on issues like evolution and LGBT rights. The chart is extensive, but here are a few examples:


The enemy’s desired result

Means to reach that end

By contrast: God’s desired result


Death of babies


More babies born, not aborted

Sexual morality

Increase in homosexuality

Same-sex marriage laws; hate speech codes

Healthy marriages between 1 man and 1 woman

Sexual morality

Gender identity confusion in children

Teaching in schools that homosexuality is normal

Boys and girls confident and secure in their own distinct gender identities

Moral standards

Moral breakdown of society

Teaching of evolution, with implication that there is no God to whom we are morally accountable; teaching of moral relativism in universities

Belief that all people are accountable to God for their actions; belief in some moral absolutes



American citizens ignorant of the goodness and greatness of America; citizens not proud of country, even hating it


Revisionist, anti-American teaching of history; obsessive repetition of past American mistakes


Renewed patriotism; America’s renewed belief in its own goodness; balanced, truthful emphasis on America’s good actions along with acknowledgment of mistakes
