According to the Bible, the human heart is deceitful above all things (Jeremiah 17:9). Add to this formula the enemy, Satan, whom the Bible describes as a murderer from the beginning and as the father of lies (John 8:44). Introduce a body of Christ-following believers who often know very little about the Bible and even less about the 27 percent of the Bible containing prophecy, and you have a recipe for deception.
Fraud is an intentional deception or intentional misrepresentation made by someone with knowledge that the lie he or she just put forth will likely result in him or her receiving something of value. That something of value in the physical world is usually money or property. In the spiritual realm, your soul and eternal destiny are at stake. Fraud prevention (in both the physical and spiritual realms) requires familiarizing yourself with the fraud schemes being utilized and sometimes the red-flag indicators of those schemes. Nothing short of this knowledge will prepare you to stand against your enemy and the fraudulent schemes he employs (Ephesians 6:11).
Memo from the Devil is a nonfiction work that contains a ten-part fictional memorandum written in the first person as though Satan is speaking to his demonic forces. The book is designed to expose some of the fraud that is being perpetrated against the human race. The Bible does not say the truth will set you free; it says that you shall know the truth and that the truth will then set you free (John 8:31).
