"There is an opening of the eyes of the mind to contemplation & joy, & an opening of the eyes of the body to shame & confusion — Satan promises men the former, but intends for them the latter, & so he cheats them, giving them an apple in exchange for a paradise, as he deals with [billions] nowadays. Satan with ease pawns falsehoods upon us, by his golden baits, & then leads us & leaves us in a fool's paradise."
—Thomas Brooks, Precious Remedies Against Satan's Devices
Esau sold his birthright for a mess of pottage. Today, billions lose their souls for lives of emptiness & vanity.
