Screwtape

 

There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them. They themselves are equally pleased by both errors and hail a materialist or a magician with the same delight.

An Amazon Review: by Kug: I read of this book in an article that was referencing it so thought, why not? It was written by a theologian in I believe 1907. Its not necessarily an easy read but it is an eye opening one. Keep in mind this was written over 100 years ago and the guy lays out much of what we are experiencing and seeing today. It takes you inside the Bible and an in depth study of the character Satan. I’ve read a lot but nothing quite like this. It is very specific, well documented and kept my interest end to end. Its not a light read but well worth it==> Satan.

It is important to make a distinction between evil and tragedy. An evil act is a human act, aimed at harm for harm’s sake. The capacity to act in an evil manner depends on self-consciousness: if I know how I can be hurt, I know how to hurt others. Evil destroys the individual’s faith in human nature. Tragedy, by contrast, is an inevitable consequence of human vulnerability. Tragic circumstances are destructive, but not motivated. Human beings can withstand tragedy, but can be undermined by evil.
