Atheist mocks Christian belief in Satan, let’s discuss that…

An Atheist continues to support and worship his god, Satan, by denying Satan’s existence. Truly, there is no difference between Atheism and Satanism; both seek death in sin and death in Hell in their unbelief concerning Jesus Christ. Every Atheist exists under demonic influence and they are a child of Satan as per their loyalty to him even if unaware.

Atheist, Mark Dempsey, stated: Christians believe that Satan is real, but what’s interesting is that Satanists don’t. On the Satanic Church website they state their view. Do you believe in Satan: “No, nor do we believe in the existence of Satan or the supernatural. The Satanic Temple believes that religion can, and should, be divorced from superstition. As such, we do not promote a belief in a personal Satan.” Are Satanists right when they say that Christians are superstitious when they promote a belief in a personal Satan?

Response to Atheist Dempsey,

The most effective strategy in Satan’s repertoire is his skill in convincing mankind that he does not exist. The opinions and beliefs or unbelief of Atheists and Satanists concerning Satan is truly of no concern in reality for they are Satan’s servants, unaware. What is relevant is what Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit have said about Satan. Before we review the relevant Scriptures, remember this; in this life constrained by Time, mankind has but two-options concerning their Eternal destiny,

1. Trust in Jesus Christ as Lord for the mediation of sin and find life in God’s Kingdom

– or –

2. Deny Jesus Christ as Lord and serve Satan by default and ultimately die in sin and die the “second death” in Hell in futility.

Please do not follow the lead of Satan’s servants as exemplified by Mark Dempsey and other atheists who defend Satan as they store-up wrath against themselves for the Day of Wrath at the Judgment of the Condemned manifesting subsequent to the Millennia Reign of Jesus Christ.
