This would be something that someone looking at the message information would want to know about the message. This first message in our series on Satan is aimed at how he attacks believers in order to deceive them into not doing God's will. His various TRICKS are used to mislead believers into doubt, distortion and deception (just like in the garden of Eden) and the method he consistently uses is craftiness (trickery). He lays TRAPS in order to seduce believers, and offers substitutes to draw them away from the simplicity of following Christ. Finally, he offers TRADE-OFFS through false messages that include another Savior, a different spirit and a different way of salvation. The Corinthian believers were resisting Paul, but tolerating these false ministers - a real travesty.
