Inspired by C.S Lewis and a writing prompt…
My dearest Abaddon,
It is my absolute honor to share with you that we have acquired a new target to torment at Greater Grace Christian Academy. He is young, and full of useless knowledge, so we have many avenues to work on him through. If we encounter an area where he may be less reliant on himself, and more reliant on our Adversary, then we will simply steer clear of it for the time being. We must weaken the boy first before we recklessly attack any of those strongholds…
Now remember Abaddon, I have been manipulating the minds of these ‘teachers’ for centuries, warping them into some of the most disgraceful of their kind, ruining them one seemingly harmless day at a time. So as you read these words, consider them and understand that these ideas have worked for the past 6,000 years, and will still work today. The hearts of these abominable creatures always beat to the same rhythm.
Phase one can be handled a number of ways, but I highly recommend that you start by making sure he focuses on the subject he is teaching rather than the pupils he is teaching. These vermin cling to those who are roughly 10-15 years older than they, so keep the boy as impersonal as possible. Fill his mind with the quirky annoyances that accompany each rat, rather than letting him see them as a part of the Adversary’s creation after His image. The more our subject focuses on the content of which he’s teaching, the less time he’ll have to consider his constituents; and they will begin to resent not only him, but the subject, and ultimately the environment in which they all had this unpleasant experience.
Phases two and three become a breeze if you spend enough time laying down the foundation in phase one. For phase two, you must closely follow the subject to his dwelling place and study his habits. Once you are familiar with the territory, you must make all of his routines seem like a hassle and a chore, and turn all of his leisure times into a bombardment of stimuli. Do not allow his mind to rest. By doing this, you’ll keep him out of the powerful grasp of the Adversary’s Word and Presence. The less he is being quickened by our Opponent, the less effective he’ll be in front of others. The less he willingly learns on a daily basis, the less he’ll pass on to those who desperately need it. Occupy him with his finances, sinful tendencies, and past, and you’ll cripple him for the present. I’m salivating just thinking about the possibilities of what you’ll be able to do with his mind and soul!
Now, once everything falls into place, and he’s filled with the knowledge of his subject content only, constantly reminding himself of his past rather than thinking with the Adversary in refreshment and forgiveness, charge the atmosphere in his classroom each day about five minutes before he walks through the door. Those insects won’t have any idea what they’re walking into. And even if our subject catches on to what we’re doing, he won’t be able to shift the atmosphere with his illegitimate faith. Make sure there’s enough static in the room to get those buggers speaking out and shifting around constantly. That way every single one of his responses or lack thereof is being closely watched. The more he fails ungracefully in front of them, the more he is playing right into our hands.
So, Abaddon, with these words I commit unto you all power and subtlety as given to me by our Most Evil Father. The more worms we send to the unquenchable fire, the more pleased He will be.
To death eternal in the great abyss,
