Of the three great enemies of the Christian
an enemy more dangerous than the fact that he remains hidden or forgotten.
Of the three great enemies of the Christian--the world, the flesh, and
the devil--the last is the most dangerous. Not only because it is he
who lends the others what power they have, but also because he is not
seen and, therefore, little known or feared. The devil has the power
of darkness. He darkens the eyes, so that men do not know him. He surrounds
himself with darkness, so that he is not observed. Yes, he even has
the power to appear as an angel of light. It is by the faith that recognises
things unseen that the Christian is to endeavour to know Satan--even
as the Scriptures have revealed him."
