Some people stress that we must believe the Devil is real and is our dangerous enemy; they say that in order to fight well we must recognise the enemy.

And sometimes they think to stress this point by saying that evil people are not our enemy – this is the opposite of recognising the enemy: Christ said to evil men, “ye are of your father the Devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do” Jn 8. Evil men are absolutely our enemy, doing the lusts of the Devil on the earth.

If we do not recognise this enemy, then we do not recognise our enemy the Devil, or any enemy.

“Beware of men” Mt 10

Some might object that we shouldn’t see some group of people as our enemy, but this of course does not come from Scripture. Rather, we must group people by morality, and this must trump any other grouping. Grouping by morality must trump grouping by skin colour, for example: if a person is good, we must be friends, regardless of skin colour: if a person is evil, he must be our enemy, regardless of skin colour.
