In this column last week, referring to Matt Hancock’s affair, I made a passing reference to ‘the Tempter’. A surprising number of email correspondents have asked me to have the courage name and shame the individual in question! I’m afraid that they have got quite the wrong end of the stick. Indeed, I’m shocked that anyone would not be certain as to what I was referring to . Have we become so forgetful of scripture?
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the Devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom he may devour. Whom resist, steadfast in the faith”
1 Peter 5: 8
That’s who I meant.
