As quietly as God works, Satan too have been working silently. This is why it is very damaging, since people are just too blind to see these invisible forces and if they do see them, it is very likely for them to make a mistake in telling the difference.
For example, when God has blessed a person with much gifts, it could be seen as 'Oh, I'm being lucky!', etc. They failed to see that they should thank God for it and they failed to see how much God loves them.
Many things around us show how the Satan successfully blinded many of us to see the beauty of the Lord. Visit this site and see how Bible verses were taken as 'hate literature'! www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=31080
He said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn.
Yes, it is sad. But there is still hope. Perhaps, all these can be taken as a process for us to learn to be more compassionate, and to be a better example of Christ.
10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
Have you allowed Satan to blind you?
