When a man is not with God, he is a plaything of the devil. And the devil plays with him: one moment he fills his soul with impure thoughts, another moment he kindles his tongue with cursing, another moment he leads him into slandering, into thievery, into debauchery, and into every other evil deed. And it continues this way until a man remembers God, takes refuge in the temple of God, and falls down before God. Then he is entirely in heaven and neither the human evils of the world, nor demons can touch him.
+St. Justin Popovich
