They are spiritually blind: Reason Six of Sixteen Reasons The World's False Religions Can Unite
By Brannon S. Howse
The false religions of the world can unite because their adherents are spiritually blind. What does it mean to be spiritually blind? Here’s how the Bible explains it: “But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded” (2 Corinthians 4:3-4). And who is the god of this age? Satan, of course. The truth has been veiled to those who follow a false religion through the deception of Satan. But the glorious message of the Holy Spirit is that He spiritually enlightens people to see the truth, to understand their sin and depravity, to understand the Gospel, and to repent. For those who have not been allowed to understand the truth of God’s Word, it is easy to unite with others who share their spiritual blindness, simply because they cannot see the truth. John 14:15-17 also says the world is spiritually blind because they do not have the spirit of truth:
If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever--the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive.
