“Tinap fɔ fɛt Setan, i go rɔnawe.”—JEMS 4:​7.

4 Wi nɔ nid fɔ fred Setan ɛn in dɛbul dɛn. Nɔto ɔltin Jiova go alaw Setan fɔ du to wi.

 5 If wi gɛt tayt padi biznɛs wit Jiova, Setan nɔ go ebul pwɛl wi padi biznɛs wit Am.

(Mayka 4:​1; Jɔn 15:​19; Rɛvɛleshɔn 12:​12, 17) Setan no se na smɔl tɛm nɔmɔ dɔn lɛf fɔ am, so i de du ɔl wetin i ebul fɔ mek wi nɔ kɔntinyu fɔ de biɛn Gɔd. Sɔntɛnde, Setan kin atak wi fes-to-fes, bɔt ɔda tɛm dɛn i kin yuz kɔni kɔni we dɛn fɔ atak wi.

(Sɛkɛn Lɛta Fɔ Kɔrint 2:​11; luk Ɛndnot 31 na pej 254.) Wan pan dɛn we dɛn ya na juju biznɛs.

NƆ GƐT ƐNITIN FƆ DU WIT DƐBUL DƐN

10. (a) Wetin i min fɔ put an pan dɛbul biznɛs? (b) Aw Jiova de si juju biznɛs?

Di Baybul tɛl wi se juju biznɛs na tin we Jiova “et” ɛn wi nɔ go de put an pan juju biznɛs ɛn wɔship Jiova di sem tɛm. (Ditarɔnɔmi 18:​10-12; Rɛvɛleshɔn 21:​8) Ɔl tru Kristian dɛn fɔ avɔyd ɛnitin we gɛt fɔ du wit dɛbul dɛn.—Lɛta Fɔ Rom 12:​9.

SETAN KIN TRAY FƆ FUL WI

12. Aw Setan kin kɔnfyus di we aw wi de tink?

12 Setan kin tray fɔ kɔnfyus di we aw pipul dɛn de tink. Smɔl smɔl, i kin mek pipul dɛn bigin dawt, dɔn dɛn kin bigin “kɔl bad, gud ɛn gud, bad.” (Ayzaya 5:​20) Setan de mek pipul dɛn tink se di advays dɛn we de na di Baybul nɔ de ɛp wi, ɛn wi go gɛt gladi-at if wi nɔ fala Gɔd in lɔ dɛn.

13. Aw Setan dɔn tray fɔ mek pipul dɛn dawt?

13 Wan pan di men tin dɛn we Setan de yuz na fɔ mek pipul dɛn dawt. I dɔn de yuz dis fɔ lɔng tɛm. Na di gadin we bin de na Idɛn, i bin tray fɔ mek Iv dawt bay we i aks am se: “Fɔ tru tru PAPA GƆD tɛl una se, una nɔ fɔ it di frut dɛn pan ɔl di tik dɛn na di fam?” (Jɛnɛsis 3:​1) Leta, insay Job in tɛm, bifo bɔku enjɛl dɛn, Setan bin aks Jiova se: “Yu fil se na fɔ natin mek Job de fred yu?” (Job 1:​9) Afta Jizɔs baptayz, Setan bin chalenj Jizɔs bay we i tɛl am se: “If yu na Gɔd in pikin, tɛl dɛn ston ya fɔ tɔn to bred.”—Matyu 4:​3.

14. Aw Setan kin mek pipul dɛn dawt se dɛbul biznɛs na tin we nɔ rili bad?

14 Tide, Setan de kɔntinyu fɔ mek pipul dɛn dawt. I de tray fɔ mek pipul dɛn dawt if dɛbul biznɛs rili bad bay we i de mek i tan lɛk se sɔm kayn dɛn nɔ rili bad. Ivin sɔm Kristian dɛn kin bigin fɔ fil se i nɔ rili bad. (Sɛkɛn Lɛta Fɔ Kɔrint 11:​3) So wetin wi go du fɔ protɛkt wisɛf? Aw wi go mek shɔ se wi nɔ  alaw Setan fɔ ful wi? Lɛ wi tɔk bɔt tu we dɛn we i kin yuz fɔ ful wi: fɔ ɛnjɔy wisɛf ɛn us tritmɛnt wi go tek.

SETAN DE YUZ DI TIN DƐN WE WI LƐK FƆ GƐT WI

15. Aw wi go put an pan dɛbul biznɛs bay di we aw wi de ɛnjɔy wisɛf?

15 Tide, bɔku fim dɛn, tɛlivishɔn sho dɛn, kɔmpyuta gem dɛn, ɛn Intanɛt sayt dɛn de sho dɛbul biznɛs, majik, ɛn juju biznɛs.

Sɔmbɔdi kin put an pan dɛbul biznɛs bay we i put an pan tin dɛn lɛk fɔ rid in sta, fɔ rid in pam, ɛn plɛnti ɔda tin dɛn. Setan de mek pipul dɛn fil se dɛn tin ya nɔ bad, ɛn i de tray fɔ mek dɛn tin dɛn de luk wɔndaful, fɔni, ɛn fayn fɔ wach. Sɔmbɔdi kin tink se i nɔ rili bad fɔ wach fim we gɛt sɔntin fɔ du wit dɛbul ɔ juju biznɛs wans i nɔ rili put an pan dɛbul biznɛs. Wetin mek i bad fɔ tink da kayn we de?—Fɔs Lɛta Fɔ Kɔrint 10:​12.

16. If wi de pik we dɛn fɔ ɛnjɔy wisɛf, wetin mek wi fɔ avɔyd tin dɛn we gɛt fɔ du wit juju biznɛs?

16 Setan ɛn in dɛbul dɛn nɔ de ebul no wetin wi de tink.

Dɔn, Setan ɛn in dɛbul dɛn go  tray fɔ mek wi put an pan juju biznɛs.—Rid Lɛta Fɔ Galeshya 6:​7.

17. Setan no se wi want fɔ gɛt wɛlbɔdi, aw i kin yuz dat fɔ ambɔg wi?

 18 Jiova bin wɔn di wan dɛn we de pwɛl in lɔ dɛn se: “Udat nɔ obe PAPA GƆD in lɔ, PAPA GƆD et in prea ɛn nɔ go ansa dɛnsɛf we [dɛn] de pre.” (Prɔvabs 28:​9) Jɔs imajin, Jiova nɔ go ivin lisin to dɛn prea! So wi nɔ want fɔ du ɛnitin we go pwɛl wi padi biznɛs wit Jiova ɛn we go mek i nɔ ɛp wi, mɔ di tɛm we wi sik.

(Matyu 6:​13, NW) If i bi se i gɛt sɔntin fɔ du wit dɛbul ɔ juju biznɛs, wi nid fɔ avɔyd am!—Luk Ɛndnot 32 na pej 255.

19. Wetin dɔn mek bɔku pipul dɛn de fred Setan?

19 We sɔm pipul dɛn de tink se Setan ɛn i dɛbul dɛn nɔ rial, ɔda wan dɛn no se dɛn rial bikɔs sɔntin dɔn apin to dɛn we sho se dɛn de. Bɔku pipul dɛn de fred wikɛd spirit dɛn ɛn dɛn dɔn tɔn slev to kɔstɔm dɛn we gɛt fɔ du wit juju biznɛs. Ɔda wan dɛn de mek pipul dɛn fred di dɛbul dɛn bay we dɛn de pul stori dɛn we de tɔk bɔt di bad bad tin dɛn we dɛbul dɛn de du to mɔtalman.

20. Aw wi go ɛp fɔ skata Setan in lay lay stori dɛn?

20 Mɛmba se Setan want mek pipul dɛn fred am. (Sɛkɔn Lɛta fɔ Tɛsalonayka 2:​9, 10, NW) In na layman we no aw fɔ ful di wan dɛn we de put an pan dɛbul biznɛs ɛn mek dɛn biliv di tin dɛn we nɔto  tru.
