When we prefer that God is a concept, it rings true with the Atheistic and Satanic argument. Just as was stated "Because then we are in charge".
When we are in charge we "Do what we wilt" as Lucifer did in Isaiah 14. We cast ourselves above God. This is a teaching also of Aliester Crowley, the Church of Satan, and is also part of the Wiccan witches creed.
In the Lord's prayer, we were taught "THY will be done (God's will be done)". This makes us not in charge, but followers of God's will.
I started a thread a while back on this about Atheists being Satanists.
The original sin in the garden holds true to this concept. "Follow your own will, make yourself in charge, do what thy wilt, and you'll have the gnosis of good and evil and be AS God"....
