In other words, your youth leader says that an evil monster that we can't see or hear lurks among us and gets inside our brains to control our thoughts and desires.
Here are some questions that you might consider asking your youth leader:
1. Where exactly is Satan?
2. Where does Satan live?
3. What does Satan look like?
4. What does Satan sound like?
5. Has anyone ever seen Satan?
6. What empirical evidence do you have that an evil, invisible monster exists?
7. What empirical evidence do you have that an evil, invisible monster can invade our thoughts and control our behavior?
8. Does this evil, invisible monster follow us everywhere we go? Does he float in the air? How does he move about?
9. Where in the Bible does it say that an invisible, evil monster controls the thoughts of homosexuals?
10. What does science say about the existence of an evil, invisible monster?
11. What do psychologists say about the existence of an evil, invisible monster?
12. What does neurobiology say about the belief in an evil, invisible monster?
If your youth leader can't provide you with empirical, trustworthy evidence that this evil, invisible monster truly exists then you may want to suggest that his thinking is extremely childish and that he is suffering from delusion. You may suggest that he seek counseling and some serious self-analysis.
