You are a Soul. You have a body."

no meaning." C.S.Lewis

"It is only what you
are asked to believe in Reason coming from
non-reason that you must cry Halt. Human minds.
They do not come from nowhere. C. S. Lewis

"My argument against God was that the universe
seemed so cruel and unjust. But how had I got this
idea of just and unjust? A man does not call a line
crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line.
What was I comparing this universe with when I
called it unjust?"

“If you think of this
world as a place intended simply for our
happiness, you find it quite intolerable: think
of it as a place of training and correction and
it's not so bad.” C.S. Lewis
“We are half-hearted
creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and
ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like
an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud
pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is
meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We
are far too easily pleased.” C.S. Lewis
“In the same way a
Christian is not a man who never goes wrong, but
a man is enabled to repent and pick himself up
and begin over again after each stumble--because
the Christ-life is inside him, repairing him all
the time, enabling him to repeat (in some
degree) the kind of voluntary death which Christ
Himself carried out." - Mere Christianity” C.S.
Fallen man is not simply an imperfect
creature who needs improvement: he is a rebel
who must lay down his arms.
All the rabbit in us is to disappear – the
worried, conscientious, ethical rabbit as well
as the cowardly and sensual rabbit. We shall
bleed and squeal as the handfuls of fur come
out; and then, surprisingly, we shall find
underneath it all a thing we have never yet
imagined: a real Man…a son of God; strong,
radiant, wise, beautiful, and drenched in joy.
God became man to turn creatures into sons;
not simply to produce better men of the old
kind, but to produce a new kind of man. It
is not like teaching a horse to jump better
and better but like turning a horse into a
winged creature. C.S. Lewis
