Spotting Counterfeits

In the not-distant past, one of the ways banks found counterfeit money was by feel. They trained tellers by having them spend hours handling authentic bills. Just moving bills in their hands. A teller so-trained could take a stack of bills, riffle through them fairly quickly, and toss to one side any bill that didn't feel right. A large fraction of those "wrong" bills were confirmed to be counterfeits.

The best way to train people (of any age) to be able to spot Satan's lies is by having them spend a lot of time in the Bible. Even if they can't articulate why something isn't right, they'll have a such a strong feel for the truth that they'll be suspect of it.
