C. S. Quotes

cslewis

It is quite true that God will not love you any the less, or have less use for you, if you happen to have been born with a very second-rate brain. He has room for people with very little sense, but He wants every one to use what sense they have. The proper motto is not “Be good, sweet maid, and let who can be clever,” but “Be good, sweet maid, and don’t forget that this involves being as clever as you can.” God is no fonder of intellectual slackers than of any other slackers. If you are thinking of becoming a Christian, I warn you you are embarking on something which is going to take the whole of you, brains and all. But, ,fortunately, it works the other way round. Anyone who is honestly trying to be a Christian will soon find his intelligence being sharpened: one of the reasons why it needs no special education to be a Christian is that Christianity is an education itself. That is why an uneducated believer like Bunyan was able to write a book that has astonished the whole world. – Mere Christianity

    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.
