Satanic verses

Re: Verse reading–Psalm 91 (day seven)
“He will command His angels to guard you. . . they will bear you up, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.”  (Satan, quoting Psalm 91 in Luke 4:10-11)  In 1988, Salman Rushdie published a novel called The Satanic Verses. It is a fictional story based loosely on the true account of Mohammed who was once influenced by Satan to speak words into the Quran,  later to renounce the things said.  Even to remind the Muslim world of this little-known truth was explosive.  (Rushdie experienced death threats)  The Bible tells a very different story of Jesus’ encounter with Satan.  Without being influenced,  the Lord denied Satan’s misinterpretation of Psalm 91 from the very start.  God’s promise is to protect us from some dangers and to guide us through others.  There is no absolute immunity from danger and pain. The Bible has no satanic verses, but the enemy still works to misinterpret and confuse our trust.
