Satan is working with all his might to block our view of God's awesome beauty and glory, His righteousness and justice.
A well-dressed man politely telling his friend at Starbucks that the God of the Bible just doesn't seem like a God worthy of his worship is more of a victory for Satan than all the gore and terror in the world.
Satin is out there. He can't be bargained with; he can't be reasoned with. He is pitiless and always laser-focused on his two-fold mission: 1. To lure us into a place where we turn against God. 2. To accuse us of our guilt for the very rebellion he's helped engineer.
For the Christian, nothing could be more serious. If God is ignored, blamed, or rebelled against, then His glory will not be our joy. Thank God for our Savior Jesus Christ.
