I know it has only been a few weeks since I started the “My Tuesday Three” theme, but I’m already discovering that it is much more difficult than I imagined. It seems as though I must be more focused on seeing the “three” posts throughout the week, and if I don’t have a lot of time to read other blogs that is very challenging. This last week, I just was not able to accomplish this because I’ve been focused on a lot of other things.
Not wanting to completely let go of the “My Tuesday Three” theme altogether, and fully planning to get back to identifying three blog posts over this next week, I decided to post about a different type of “three” this week. I want to share three of my favorite C.S. Lewis quotes.
A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, ‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell.
I love this quote because it’s just so to the point. It’s classic Lewis logic. The Truth of God’s glory is a constant and cannot be made false because someone denies it. Richard Dawkins or Frederich Neitzsche claiming that God does not exist does not make that reality.
I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.
This is my all-time favorite C.S. Lewis quote! It describes how I feel about my faith. Through Christ, I see why the world is the way it is and also how it could be. I see that love is the highest virtue and the pride is the greatest sin.
There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, “Thy will be done,” and those to whom God says, “All right, then, have it your way.”
