Better tell a lie, old chap, better tell a lie. Easiest for all concerned. CS Lewis, The Pilgrim’s Regress
How refreshing is a moment of honesty such that defies the fears of the Steward’s bearded mask, the warnings of a Landlord and his black holes adorned with snakes and scorpions large as lobsters, to recognize there is no charge against the Master which the Enemy brings so often as cruelty?
Then how will these moments be met by the Landlord’s people? Surely with compassion and humility, for Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom we are all foremost.
