Law and Gospel in C.S. Lewis


"Christianity tells people to repent and promises them forgiveness. It therefore has nothing…to say to people who do not know they have done anything to repent of and who do not feel that they need any forgiveness."
CS Lewis, 'Mere Christianity', p.38
“When you know you are sick, you will listen to the doctor…. Of course, I quite agree that the Christian religion is, in the long run, a thing of unspeakable comfort. But it does not begin in comfort; it begins in…dismay.”
'Mere Christianity', p39
From 'Law and Gospel in the Works of C S Lewis' by Angus Menuge
