Isolation is Spiritually Destructive

Diettrich Bonhoeffer Quotoshop 1-2

“Sin demands to have a man by himself. It withdraws him from the community. The more isolated a person is, the more destructive will be the power of sin over him. Sin wants to remain unknown . . . [But] the sin must be brought into the light. The unexpressed must be openly spoken and acknowledged . . . If a Christian is in the fellowship of confession with a brother he will never be alone again, anywhere.” (Diettrich Bonhoeffer)
