Mere Humanity

In the following excerpt from Mere Christianity, C.S Lewis proves he is a fallen human being. Not that we needed evidence for that, but these words did surprise me.

“It [Christ’s return] will be the time when we discover which side we really have chosen, whether we realised it before or not. Now, today, this moment is our chance to choose the right side. God is holding back to give us that chance. It will not last for ever. We must take it or leave it.” (Lewis in For All the Saints: A Prayer Book for and by the Church: Volume II, 121.)

Thank God that He doesn’t give you the “chance.” God simply saves you.
