corruption of humans

  1. corruption of humans

    1st goal for satan,lead people away from God.2 once away from God exploit them in every way.3after being exploited they don,t believe in God thus follow satan.:mad:.the people don,t follow the good word because of satan unlimited lies.they are spiritually dead.they never understand until they read the bible.but satan stops them.:mad:
     
  2. Until the Holy Spirit gets their attention...Then old nick is done in!
     
  3. very true,but faith is passed by us,we have a responsibility to shine in goodness.we need to shine a lot.
     
  4. Actually God blinds people as well....

    Joh 12:39-40 Therefore they could not believe. For again Isaiah said, (40) "He has blinded their eyes and hardened their heart, lest they see with their eyes, and understand with their heart, and turn, and I would heal them."

    Satan too though....
    2Co 4:4 In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

    but of course since God is omnipotent and omnipresent Satan can only do what God allows him/it to do in the first place, eg Job...

    so yes indeed... unless God opens blinded eyes, blind is what they will remain, and total depravity is proved, as is regeneration precedes faith...

    blessings,
    Ken
     
  5. God blinds those folks according to the disposition of their hearts.
     
  6. Another way to understand it is, He lets them stay in the blindness they have chosen.
