"In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them" (2 Cor 4:4).

In this verse Satan is called the god of this world. Notice how the god is spelled with a small "g".

Satan is not the true God, but is called the god of this world because most people are under his control. Those who do not believe in the gospel are under Satan power. Satan is called the ruler of the darkness of this world. He is behind all the sin and evil that goes on in this world. His goal is to keep as many men, women, boys and girls under his control so they will not understand what the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ really is. 

   God is always shining the light of the gospel into a person's heart, but Satan who is a deceiver tries to put barriers in the way so the person will not understand or receive the gospel and be saved.  

 Satan blinds a persons mind with methods that we will be studying throughout this book, and you will begin to understand that there is a real spiritual battle going on. Satan will become anything to lead a person away from God.

Have you ever been blindfolded? When a person can not see, they are helpless and unable to find their way. In the same way Satan blinds the minds of people who do not know God and tries to keep them from truly knowing God. Satan does not want anyone to be saved.

 There is an on-going battle between the kingdom of light and the kingdom of darkness. The battle is for the souls of every person.
