Today I want to share with you some quotes from C.S.Lewis (1898-1963), a former atheist, author of the Chronicles of Narnia:

I gave in, and admitted that God was God.

*

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

*

If the whole universe has no meaning, we should never have found out that it has no meaning: just as, if there were no light in the universe and therefore no creatures with eyes, we should never know it was dark. Dark would be without meaning.

*

A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, ‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell.

*

Miracles are a retelling in small letters of the very same story which is written across the whole world in letters too large for some of us to see.

*

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