      "How rare is the person who has continuity with regard to his
      consciousness of himself. As a rule, men are conscious only
      momentarily, conscious in the midst of big decisions, but they do not
      take their daily every day events into account at all; they are
      spirit of sorts for an hour one day a week-which of course, is a
      rather crude way to be spirit. But eternity is the essential
      continuity and demands this of a person or that he be conscious as
      spirit and have faith. The sinner, however, is so much in the power
      of sin that he has no idea of its wholly encompassing nature, that he
      is lost and on the way to destruction. He takes into account only
      each particular new sin that seems to give him impetus on the road to
      destruction, just as if he were not proceeding along that way the
      moment before with all the impetus of his previous sins. Sin has
      become so natural to him, or sin has become so much his second
      nature, that he finds his daily everyday life to be entirely in
      order, and he pauses only for a moment each time he perceives new
      impetus, so to speak, from the new sin. In his lostness, he is blind
      to the fact that his life has the continuity of sin instead of the
      essential continuity of the eternal through being before God in
      faith." Soren Kierkegaard
