Unconscious Despair

September 26, 2010
A conscience which is not fully enlightened both to the seriousness of its condition before God, and to the grandeur of God’s merciful provision of redemption, will inevitably fall prey to anxiety, pride, sensuality and all the other expressions of that unconscious despair which Kierkegaard called “the sickness unto death.”

– Richard Lovelace, Dynamics of Spiritual Life.
