“I agree Technology is per se neutral: but a race devoted to the increase of its own power by technology with complete indifference to ethics does seem to me a cancer in the Universe.

A great paradox at the heart of Christianity is that Christians are called to be both child-like and mature! On the one hand Jesus says “whosoever shall not receive the kingdom as a little child, he shall not enter therein (Mark 10:15) on the other hand Paul reminds us: ‘That we henceforth be no more like children, tossed to and fro and carried about by every wind of doctrine … but speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ.’ (Ephesians 4:14-15)

C.S. Lewis thought reading the daily newspaper was a waste of time, did not watch television, reluctantly agreed to radio appearances, and only rarely went out to the movies.

C. S. Lewis once wrote an essay titled, The Funeral of a Great Myth, in it he eulogizes the religion of evolutionism. In the same spirit, I have often thought it would be good to bury a host of myths about C. S. Lewis as well.

When we think of religion we might turn to a set of rules that, if followed, will produce a sense of order and satisfaction. We may also view religion as an aim to experience a particular feeling or emotion through a variety of means. But Christianity is not chiefly about rules nor about emotion; it’s about a certain death that brings us into life.
