Steven Rigby, the Computer Information Technology Department Chair at BYU-Idaho, spoke to students about ways to stay safe in a world of sin.
Rigby taught just as there are physical fortifications for buildings, cities and nations, we must increase our spiritual fortifications through prayer, studying the scriptures, following the prophets and giving service.
He said with these defenses we can withstand Satan and his tactics which include the “massive attack,” “Laying siege” or a “backdoor attack.” He explained a backdoor attack includes gaming, social media and our cellphones.
“You can bet Satan has a plan on how to use this device to sneak past all of your defenses. Do we have a plan on how to keep these backdoors shut? Is it written down and reviewed frequently? By one click of a button or link, Satan can bypass all of your fortifications and slip you into sinning within seconds,” he said.
