Day vs night

Every earthly day has a coming darkness.

Every earthly night has a coming dawn.

Heaven has an eternal day – no reason to dread coming night.

Hell has eternal night with no hope of dawn, no hope!

WORD

My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?

Psa 22.1

 

For Nov. 22

V.  VW – all I owned for 9 years: had three beetles and a “squareback.” Dad had more.

 

Sinners are not saints. Saints are not sinners.

True sinners agree with the above.  True saints agree with the above.

Only those trying to straddle the impossible border, disagree.

Praise Him

 

Praise Him in the morning when you awaken.

Praise Him at dinner when you your seat have taken.

Praise Him in the evening when the sun goes down.

Praise God all day long, with a joyful sound.

Lewis – died

ON THIS DATE

C S Lewis died 11/22/1963.  He was born 11/29/1898 in Belfast, Ireland and raised in Christian atmospheres.  Around 15 he turned “atheist” partly influenced by his interest in mythology and the occult.  In his 30’s he became a Christian – listen to his account:  “You must picture me alone in that room in Magdalen, night after night, feeling, whenever my mind lifted even for a second from my work, the steady, unrelenting approach of Him whom I so earnestly desired not to meet. That which I greatly feared had at last come upon me. In the Trinity Term of 1929 I gave in, and admitted that God was God, and knelt and prayed: perhaps, that night, the most dejected and reluctant convert in all England.”

Lewis taught at both Oxford (1924-1954) and Cambridge (1954-1963).  He is known for The Chronicles of Narnia (1950-1956), Screwtape Letters (1942) Mere Christianity, The Great Divorce and more.

Lewis Quotes:

Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.

Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.

Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, ‘Thy will be done,’ and those to whom God says, ‘All right, then, have it your way.’

The Word

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth:

for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away;

and there was no more sea.  Rev 21.1
