We need to let the Father bring us to a level of acceptance and understanding of this truth about human existence. We cannot live as independent spiritual entities. The Father created us this way so that we would have a need to seek Him. If we reject God we automatically accept Satan’s spiritual guidance. We have a will but this can only choose between options, it cannot create its own possibilities. All of this comes out of our having a human spirit that is largely non-functional until it is animated by the life of God through Christ. It is only the true life of God that can bring our human spirit to a fully functional condition. Until a person accepts the Father’s life through Christ, their spirit is inanimate (except for the conscience). In this condition, our moral guidance must come from the only other spiritual guide in creation-Satan.
