C. S. Quotes

The senior devil Screwtape writing to his nephew and protege, Wormwood:

“Never forget that when we are dealing with any pleasure in its healthy and normal and satisfying form, we are, in a sense on the Enemy’s (God’s) ground. I know we have won many a soul through pleasure. All the same, it is His invention, not ours. He made the pleasures; all our research so far has not enabled us to produce one.” The Screwtape Letters

    I enjoyed your Sabbath School lesson study today, Dave, very much. So happy to hear you have chosen well in your “favorite author” … I remember you well from PUC! Looks like you have an interesting website here! God bless you and your beautiful family. Glad to know you’re all in the area, and attend church here. You have done great things with your life.

    • Great to hear from you, Janine. Hilda and I were chatting just a few months ago and your name come up. And yes, I have a much-dog-eared copy of “Mere Christianity” that is a virtual second Bible to me. I’m glad you are doing well.
