There was one of those moments the other day. You know…one of those moments when you see something that you consider so brilliant that you know that you will have to see it again and again. This is the way we should feel about our Bibles. It is God’s Word after all.
However, every once in a while God becomes evident through a man or woman. Someone has so much talent, even if it is for a brief moment, that one has to look at the talent in awe. I’m sure you have all had this experience based on your interests. I’m sure you have all had this experience of yourself. You do something and you can’t believe you did it. Maybe you have never had this experience. It doesn’t make you a less talented person only perhaps very humble.
I had an experience like this when I first read a sermon by Charles Spurgeon. Where does man get such ability to twingle words together and give you a picture of heaven? This is not the sterile heaven portrayed in so much of our media.
In the middle of an online protest, someone unknown posted this effort by C.S. Lewis. It looked interesting. By the end of the 19 or so minutes it had happened. It was one of those times. It was brilliant. I didn’t get the man who posted this work of art because our online protest was successful. It was so successful, that the Prime Minister of Norway removed a post by hundreds of us who had opinions about a very important issue. I have since wondered if what happened was a successful thing.
Most visual persons would be even more impressed because of the artwork done with Mr. Lewis’s thoughts. The drawings capture the ideas that Mr. Lewis is stating very nicely.
Ever heard of a discernment site? That is a website designed to help people discern the truth from lies. The Narrowing Path by Sherryn, located in my blogroll is an example of an excellent Christian discernment site. Always the curious one, I was reading what one of these discernment sites said about C.S. Lewis. It gave a couple of his quotes and called him a
“heretic.” I did some checking and it seems that Lewis did hold some questionable views, but was he a heretic?
How could a heretic write a book like “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe?” I have read “The Screwtape Letters” by Mr. Lewis. It didn’t take long to see that this discernment site may have been a bit screwy. I guess God will make the determination in the end. Until that time, I will enjoy the C.S. Lewis doodles.
It isn’t obvious to me what it is about those who will never be interested in such a video. Are they more left-brained or is it that they are more right-brained? A good possibility is that they are only not ready. The brain thing I am still trying to figure out.
Watch, learn, and wonder.
