Berkouwer on Subtle Evils

Do not think that there is only one way to devaluate the moral feeling of a particular era.  There can be undermining of morals which obviously and blatantly denies the commandments of God and boldly proclaims unrestrained human liberty.  But there can also be a refinement of evil which seems to propagate something very fine and good.  In the latter case the danger is much greater than when evil is obvious to everyone. – G. C. Berkouwer, Modern Uncertainty and Christian Faith, 64.
