C.S.Lewis quote

The world does not consist of 100 per cent Christians and 100 per cent non-Christians. There are people who are slowly ceasing to be Christians but who still call themselves by that name ... There are other people who are slowly becoming Christians though they do not yet call themselves so. There are people who do not accept the full Christian doctrine about Christ but who are so strongly attracted by him that they are his in a much deeper sense than they themselves understand. There are people in other religions who are being led by God's secret influence to concentrate on those parts of their religion which are in agreement with Christianity and who thus belong to Christ without knowing it.

C.S. Lewis
Mere Christianity

No one can actually be validated a christian without studying Lewis.

C.S. that is.

Perhaps the upcoming major motion picture release of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe will initiate a revival in the reading of Lewis.

I'm counting the days down to Friday!

There are also people who have a very fulfilling spiritual life who don't look to Christ at all. Just saying.

Looking forward to the Narnia movie as well.
