Screwtape revisited

Trevin Wax has some delicious satire patterned after The Screwtape Letters. Screwtape’s advice to Wormwood includes:

At the local church level, I am convinced that the more you blind the people to their hypocrisy, the better off we will be in the long run. Make sure their temperaments run towards judgmentalism and not repentance. You can do this by keeping them focused on the sins of the increasingly decadent culture. As long as [they] focus on the actions of those in our territory, they are less apt to repent of the actions of those in their pews and pulpits.

So true it hurts!
