Satan loves to use human knowledge and education to blind the minds of people to the truth about heaven and hell. It's one of his most common and effective methods of operation.

Earthly reason and intellect are absolutely useless when it comes to comprehending the things of God. In fact, they're often a hindrance.

"But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty" (1 Cor. 1:27).

"Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned" (1 Cor. 2:13-14).

This is why statistics indicate the vast majority of people who get born-again today are children. Many adults have had their minds blinded by education and human reason. This is especially prevalent in those who are highly educated.

Why do you think there has been such a move to remove all traces of God and the Bible from our public school system? Satan wants to blind you with what you learned in elementary school, high school and college.

Blinded by Emotion
Another frequent "mind-blinder" that sends many a person to hell is emotional religion.

Remember, the Word says, God's people perish because of a "lack of knowledge," not a lack of emotion. Yet, many people attend a church where there's plenty of shouting and jumping up and down, but precious little Biblical truth going forth.

There's nothing wrong with getting your emotions involved in your worship. But when it begins to take the place of sound teaching from the Word, you're in danger of having your mind blinded by the enemy. You can begin to think that if you don't "feel it" it's not real.

Don't let yourself be blinded to the truth of God's Word, especially where it concerns matters as important as your eternal destiny. Don't perish because a lack of knowledge of these matters.
