IS ATHEISM SATANISM?
Some Christians believe that atheism is a form of
Satanism. That belief is partially right and partially wrong. Atheism is not
Satanism as it is generally understood and practiced, but it is Satanism by
The most fundamental characteristic of satanic
movements is their allegiance to Satan and rebellion against the God of the
Bible. Such groups vary in their beliefs from being violent to being
somewhat eccentric and just plain comical. Atheism is a philosophy which
does not have any allegiance to Satan, since obviously they do not believe
that he exists, but they do reject the God of the Bible and His standards
and they do preach the elevation of self as the ultimate source of ethical
standards and a philosophy which has led many to immoral and
they do consciously embrace a god -- and
it is "the self". Unfortunately
many of them do not simply reject Christianity and proceed to mind their own
business; they invest their energy in indoctrinating others into their
viewpoints. Some, in fact, become evangelical in their fervor and aggressive
in their approach. They clearly and desperately want adepts and they will
invest time and money to accomplish their aim.
But what does the Bible say about atheists?
According to the Bible there is no such thing as being
free from God and becoming “independent.” If one rejects God’s ways, he
automatically joins the "other" camp and that camp is Satan’s camp.
Satan is “the Prince of the Power of the spirit that

Atheists are “children of disobedience." They have no use for God’s
commandments, though some may say that some commandments may have some

Bible and some openly blaspheme Him and His ways with
Their spirit is the same bitter spirit that Satan and
his rebellious demons have toward God.
Yet, in spite of their anger, their offensive diatribes and their sinful ways, we must remember
that Jesus Christ died for them as well and that in the past several atheists have mended their ways and have become
committed disciples of Jesus Christ. A few went on to become famous Christian apologists.
Though they are our
adversaries, we must not see them as detestable enemies. We are to love them
as Christ loves them, and we must not treat them with disrespect and disdain.
Atheism is therefore a philosophy that emanates
from Satan. It leads to abandoning the true God and to idolizing the self.
Furthermore it, at times,
supports lifestyles which are dangerous and self-destructive.
Atheism, therefore, must be opposed, and we must do so without relenting, as we must oppose any other
form of Satanism.
