When faith diminishes evil grows

helmut-thielicke-1The unmasking and the potentiation of evil naturally belong close together, for the more concentrated and demonstrative the negation of God becomes, the more powerfully it emerges and the more difficult it is to fail to see it. And yet one will fail to see it even in its most patent form as long as one closes ones eyes to the light and the glory of God.

–Helmut Thielicke,
The Reality of the Demonic
