"But if our Gospel
be hid, it is hid to them
that are lost, 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 Corinthians 4:3-4; see also 2
According to the Word of
God, as a result of the fall of man in the Garden of Eden, all unconverted persons are blinded
and held captive by Satan in his kingdom of darkness. Therefore, salvation is a mighty deliverance from this captivity by the power and sovereign grace
of God (2 Corinthians
4:6; Colossians 1:13-14).
