" If you dip into any college, or school, or parish, or family-anything you like-at a given point in it's history, you will always find that there was a time before thatpoint when there was more elbow room and contrasts were'nt quite so sharp; and that there is going to be a time after that point when there is even less room for indecision and choices are even more momentous. Good is always getting better and bad is always getting worse: the possibilities of even apparent neutrality are always diminishing. The whole thing is sorting itself out all the time,coming to a point,getting sharper and harder" C.S. Lewis- "That Hideous Strength"

Do you agree with this??? I would like your thoughts!!! Discuss this amongst yourselves... I have given you a great topic!!!

  1. An analogy that speaks to Lewis' point:

    Consider that the world is represented by the actual Earth. As believers, we are satellites, near the World but keeping our distance. If we keep a constant distance from the World, we're ok, right? consider, as Lewis points out, the world is constantly moving away from the fixed point Who is if we keep a fixed distance from this moving object (the world) then we're moving too, right? Where are we moving? Toward or away from the Fixed One?

    This idea haunts me and convicts me as I consider whether I am following Him. Am I following Him, or just keeping a fixed distance from "them"?
