Evil Hiding Among The Good

My Photo“In his People of the Lie, M. Scott Peck says that if one is looking for genuine evil, then one ought to look first within the synagogue and church. It is the nature of evil to ‘hide among the good.’ Satan masquerades as an angel of light. Lucifer is his name, after all. Leaders of the church beware, not only because we work among the godly, but also because we ourselves, called to speak to and for God and to God’s people, are in a morally vulnerable position where sin is always lurking about the door (Gen. 4:7).”

Will Willimon in his book Pastor: The Theology and Practice of Ordained Ministry. p. 266
