If we turn aund and attak them in the same way using the same methds, n ne will win. If we utilize Satan's weapns it wuld nly be selfdestrutive. In rder t win ver Satan we must utilize Gd's weapns; humble meekness. We will let Satan hit us, but we will survive; we will demnstrate the way f virtue and the true pwer f Gd's spirit. Even after he has dne his utmst and his pwer f perseutin subsides, we will still survive. In the sight f Gd then, he will have n exuse t ause us, and after that we will be able t d anything.
