Atheists worship Satan to make a mockery of Christians because they don't want to be bothered with God or God's followers practices, so they mock. However their practices, particular the black masses are not innocuous as they think because they are opening portals to the dark world. We see in Scripture when Judas took of the bread knowing he was planning to betray Jesus. So not discerning the body of Christ. It was during that action Satan entered him. This is a warning to not play around witb God or blaspheming the Holy Spirit. This is the spirit of the antichrist in action in the world. Underneath those layers it's satan trying to get at Jesus. He obviously can't because Jesus overcame Satan once and for all but he can work on people to get them away from Christ.
Jesus came to give life more abundantly and the evil one is a destroyer who brings death.
I'm sticking with Jesus.John 10:10
