Satan's Fake News Broadcast
"Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience"
When the Earth was created, it was a sinless Kingdom of God. The first humans made themselves into sinners by their choice to become rebels (see Adam's First Names and Why Did Adam and Eve Get Different Sentences For Their Sin?).
The LORD did not create humanity in a defective state - a term that has become multifaceted in meaning since that time. Humans made themselves losers, that became "human nature" when they defected from the Truth, but the subsequent nations of mankind have, from their rebellious, sinful lusts, literally become defective states.
The reason that the Messiah is going to return is to restore a sinless state on Earth - again, a term with multiple applications of meaning. Those who make it to Salvation will be in a sinless state as individuals (see What Was The Lesson Of John 3:16?), but the Kingdom of God will then, as it was in the beginning, be restored as a Sinless State on Earth.
Humans became sinners by taking the misleading word of an angel that had before then made himself into a defective state (see What Is Satan's Real Name? and The First Narcissist: Satan's Psychiatric Disorder). He thereafter became known as "Satan" - which means blasphemer, or accuser. Satan does things by means of his evil mouth (see the Fact Finder question below).
But Satan's method of malignant wickedness isn't to destroy outright - he perverts Truth, just enough, so that it becomes a lethal lie. The first humans were given the news that they would die if they took from the test tree, but Satan broadcast his fake news to them that they could do whatever seemed right to them and God would be forced to accept them on their terms (see Grace Into Licentiousness).
"3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
Satan is spirit. But his evil influence is made physical by the lies and deceptions of those that he has himself lied to and deceived. Some, based on the verses below, have compared it to Satan "broadcasting" his influence to humanity - which nevertheless is also actually being done with the lies and deceptions of those that the Devil has himself lied to and deceived.
"2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: 2:3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others." (Ephesians 2:2-3 KJV)
"Gospel" literally means good news. Again, a multilevel meaning - it's good news in that it is a report of good things to come, but it is also news that is presented by what is good - the Truth (see What Gospel Did Jesus Preach?).
The apostle Paul (see The Ministry Of Paul And Barnabas) experienced many times how the "good news" was perverted into fake news "which is no gospel at all" (i.e. not good news at all) by those who, whether they realize it or not, are "broadcasting" Satan's fake news - a fake gospel, just as he did to the first humans.
"1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 1:7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 1:9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
Fact Finder: How has Satan's spirit of "fake news" infected everything, everywhere?
