Have you wondered, oh atheist, what makes you feel the way you do about the Almighty God, your Creator? Have you wondered what makes you deny His existence - what makes you fight against Him - what makes you have such a strong negative attitude against Him - what makes you hate Him?
It is because you are thoroughly depraved. Your hatred against the Almighty and righteous God is a manifestation of your total depravity.
You, as well as all mankind, have a sin principle that dwell in the members of your body. The sin principle is an antithetical law to the TEN COMMANDMENTS. Mankind was not originally created with this principle in his body, but received it shortly after he was created. Let me give you the gist on how mankind received this evil principle.
When the Almighty God created the first man Adam, He created him in His Kingdom. What this ultimately means is that theTEN COMMANDMENTS are the Laws Adam was originally created to obey. Since God is Adam's Creator, and the TEN COMMANDMENTS are the Laws of the kingdom of God, God created Adam in righteousness. That is, God created all the faculties of Adam's soul, mind and body to function in perfect harmony to the TEN COMMANDMENTS.
Prior to God having created man, satan and a third of the angels which God also created in righteousness defected from God's kingdom in heaven. Hell was also created by God for the fallen angels, and when they defected this is the place they were cast. However God allowed satan and a number of the other demons to leave hell and to establish satan's evil kingdom on earth. The kingdom satan established over the demons is a democracy.
It is likely that satan saw God actually create the first man and heard God command the man not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
When God commanded man not to eat of the forbidden fruit, what God was doing was exercising his authority over mankind because He is man's Creator, and required man in his created state of purity to exercise his responsibility to obey God in thought, word and deed.
But God created Adam in a unique position: He created him as the federal head and representative of the entire human race. The name "Adam" in the fullest sense means "mankind."
Therefore when God commanded the man not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, God was actually speaking to all mankind. When God told the man that he would die if he ate, God was speaking to all mankind. This is why all mankind die and this is the reason no cure for death can be found. It is part of the penalty God has placed on all mankind for having sinned or disobeyed His law in our federal head and representative, the first man Adam.
satan is a spiritual creature who was not created by God with a corporeal body as God created man. Thus in order for satan to communicate with the first man, or with Eve, satan possessed a snake that may have lurked near or on the tree which fruit God forbade man not to eat. Satan, through the snake, deceived Adam's wife, Eve, to eat of the fruit of the tree of which God forbade. His ultimate purpose in deceiving Eve was to get Adam to eat so that Adam - the federal head of all mankind- would disobey the command of God.
So Adam ate of the forbidden fruit. He did so voluntarily knowing that he was disobeying God. But what actually took place when Adam ate was that he disobeyed the commandments of God. And by disobeying God and obeying satan, Adam cast off the law of God and embraced the law of satan. When Adam did this, He was transferred out of the kingdom of God and transfer into the kingdom of satan. Since he was transferred into satan's kingdom, satan's law of sin was established in Adam's body and Adam became a slave to satan. This is what is meant by the fall of man. He fell from the created state of righteousness in which God created him. He fell from the kingdom of God.
Since Adam stood in the unique position as federal head and representative of the entire human race, all mankind fell with Adam. All mankind became slaves of satan. All of Adam's posterity are born into the world as slaves of satan. All of them inherit the law of sin which establishes itself in their corporeal bodies. This law of sin, which rules every unbeliever's soul is antithetical to the TEN COMMANDMENTS, and it is this law of sin which makes atheists as well as all other non believers hate, disobey and deny the existence of God.
The law of sin, which dwell in the members of your body oh atheist makes you a slave of sin and causes you to love all unrighteousness and to hate all of God righteousness. This law of sin is what makes you thoroughly depraved regardless of your status and level of so-called "education." It is what makes the wrath of God abide against you and what puts you on the sure road to God's eternal punishment after you die.
