Fifty years ago today, a giant died. His legacy survives as does the memory of love, stuggle, and faith he left to us. C.S. Lewis loved Christ and Christianity and never stopped delving into their depths.
He wove pictures with words that still live to challenge and excite the child and the seeker in us. “Aslan is on the Move.” Does not your hope soar?
• “It is easy enough to remove the particular kinds of graft or bullying that go on under the present system: but as long as men are twisters or bullies they will find some new way of carrying on the old game under the new system. You cannot make men good by law: and without good men you cannot have a good society.” – from C. S. Lewis “Mere Christianity”
Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good conduct let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom.
But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth.
This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic.
For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice.
But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.
