With all our “fact finding” and “memes” we miss the beauty of the simple Truth.

Contending for the Faith

“Man is becoming as narrowly “practical” as the irrational animals. In lecturing to popular audiences I have repeatedly found it almost impossible to make them understand that I recommended Christianity because I thought its affirmations to be objectively true. They are simply not interested in the question of truth or falsehood. They only want to know if it will be comforting, or “inspiring,” or socially useful.”

— C.S. Lewis, from “Modern Man and His Categories of Thought,” Present Concerns
