The Enemy and Love

There is nothing so contrary to the nature of the devil as love, for he is a spirit who is full of malice. . . . The devil understands many things, but there is nothing that he would make such bungling work at as imitating the true, divine, holy, humble love of a true saint.

Jonathan Edwards, The Glory and Honor of God, edited by Michael D. McMullen, page 314.
