He has blinded their eyes

Why does God blind the eyes and hearts of people so that they cannot see Him? He indeed blinds all of us, and those of us He elects He chooses to remove the wall of faith, but I think the real reason is that wall, that darkness, that cloud of separation is for our benefit.  Like Moses being too close to God being too near His power undoes us.  Normally we are separated by a great distance, and by that we are sheltered being such weak and sinful creatures. 
We think of separation and distance from God as a problem, and it is, but for sinful evil man it's also a kindness, that we do not behold the dazzling brightness of God, and we are not instantly undone, is a good thing.
