I've heard many Pastors and Ministers preach on this. All agree that Satan cannot read minds, but brainwashing and evil thoughts can happen in many ways. The enemy of God can see our habits and subtly play on them to affect our thoughts. If you read the beginning of the book of Job, notice that the attacks on Job are based on what Satan sees.Tracy said:This is a very intersting . I am not so sure he cannot read minds because he is powerful enough to take over the minds of many and perhaps prays on the weak willed and has brainwashed people there is evidence around the world today.
__________Soldier of God said:The Bible give us no reason to believe Satan and his demons can read our minds. To me, that would take a measure of omnipresence and omniscience, which they do not have. However, Satan and his demons have been observing and tempting human beings for thousands of years. Surely they have learned a few things about us over the years. Even without the ability to know our thoughts, they can probably make a well-educated guess as to what we are thinking – and then attempt to use it to their advantage. That is why we are commanded to “Submit yourselves, then, to God” James 4:7 before we are told to “Resist the devil”.
