(Re-Post) 200 Seconds in Hell with C.S. Lewis Episode 6

IN THIS REPEAT: Episode six of 200 Seconds in Hell. It's about a secret the devils hope you don't know.

200_Seconds_Ep_6.jpg
What is the "best tool" in the Devil's toolbox? You might be surprised that it is the opposite of what you think it might be! Screwtape reveals the secret outright in the fourth letter, but the method is mentioned either directly or indirectly in 75% of the letters. This sixth episode of "200 Seconds in Hell with C.S.

(Re-Post) 200 Seconds in Hell with C.S. Lewis Episode 5

IN THIS REPEAT: The 5th episode of 200 Seconds series to encourage you to read The Screwtape Letters

200_Seconds_Ep_5.jpg

Democracy is a very important word here on Earth and in Hell. So much so, that the devils want to create confusion about what the word actually means. That's why their philological department is hard at work to keep the real meaning out of our minds. When you listen to the fifth episode of "200 Seconds in Hell with C.S. Lewis" you'll learn some of what Screwtape thinks about how the practical meaning of democracy can be twisted.

(Re-Post) 200 Seconds in Hell with C.S. Lewis Episode 4

IN THIS REPEAT: The forth episode of my short-term series that encourages you to read The Screwtape Letters.

200_Seconds_Ep_4.jpg
Do words matter? Of course they do! That's why Screwtape tells Wormwood to either suggest more negative sounding terms or expressions that people associate with things they don't like. Words like "complacency," "unselfishness" and "Puritanical" are help for Hell's purposes. In this four episode of "200 Seconds in Hell with C.S. Lewis" you'll be reminded about some of the ways the devils try to twist words to make it a weapon for their gain.

200_Seconds_Ep_3.jpg
Practicing humility can be a very humbling experience, one that might just lead to pride! At least that's what Wormwood is partly told he should try to make happen with his patient in The Screwtape Letters. In this third episode of "200 Seconds in Hell with C.S. Lewis" you'll be reminded about some of the ways the devils try to twist humility to make it a weapon for their gain.
