Satan is very aware of this (even though Calvinists aren't) (2Cor.4:4) because man must reject the Light that God sends.

2 Corinthians 4:4 says absolutely nothing about man rejecting the light.
{read verse 3}

Satan is very aware of this (even though Calvinists aren't) (2Cor.4:4) because man must reject the Light that God sends. 2 Corinthians 4:4 says absolutely nothing about man rejecting the light. {read verse 3}

Yes, they are 'lost'(vs.3) because they 'believe not', they believe not, because they reject the light, He came unto his own, and his own received him not, but as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them which believe on his name (Jn.1:11-12), He that rejecteth me and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him, the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him on the last day (Jn.12:48)

These are those of Romans 1 who became vain in their imaginations and their foolish hearts were darkened, who God has turned over to 'strong delusion that they should believe a lie' because they believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness (2Thess.2:11-12), thus,

And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather then light, because their deeds were evil (Jn.3:19)
