Satan, just like Jesus has his representatives on the earth who do extraordinary feats for their master. Sadly, the villains do not always know for whom they are working in their endeavors to reach their goals. Laban wanted to obtain more riches. Laman and Lemuel wanted to rule as the rightful heir to their father after his death. Sherem wanted to convince his people that Jesus was not a logical possibility in which to believe. In their goals, these people were misguided and uninformed, but yet they pursued them tenaciously. One lesson that Satan and his followers can teach is persistence.
Did you hear the one about Korihor? - Korihor had a talent for speaking. For whatever reason he decided to interfere with the faith of his fellow countrymen, he knew what to say and how to say it to gain acolytes.
