Evil is a Move Towards Non-Existence

"Evil, for Athanasius as much as for Augustine, is no substance, but a breach with the source of existence and therefore a move toward non-existence." - Leithart, Athanasius, p89.

Participation in evil makes us less and less "real."  Think about that the next time you are tempted with the words, "just be yourself," "follow your heart," or "express yourself."
