Author: Walter Wink
Book: Naming the Powers: The Language of Power in the New Testament, Page #130

"That is why we must not engage the Powers without rigorous examination of our own inner evil, which we often project onto our opponents.

We must attempt to stop the spiral of violence both within ourselves and in our tactics vis-a-vis the Powers."
