“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.” -C.S. Lewis

Some things you simply have to try out first before you can fully appreciate them or understand them. St. Augustine echos the same sentiment:

“Seek not to understand that you may believe, but believe that you may understand.” – St. Augustine

Once we are able to take some kind of a leap of faith in Christianity, the world looks different – totally different. It makes more sense. We can have genuine peace. Not because we’re delusional, but because we have finally filled our hearts with what they were truly and really made for. And not because we’ve rejected reason, but because the light of faith has reinforced our reason and then taken it to places it never could have gone alone.
