Absolute Enemy

“Power according to men, as well as the spirit of power which that brings about, is truly the absolute enemy of God.  God is with those who have little power whether they have chosen this way or whether they are found involuntarily in this situation; and at issue is both material and spiritual power.  Inversely, those who have power, of whatever kind, always turn away from God.”

— Jacques Ellul, Apocalypse:  The Book of Revelation, 138.
