“Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.” – C.S. Lewis
This has been a long time favorite quote of mine. I don’t get how so many people can call themselves Christian but then not take any amount of time in their life to actually learn about it or grow in it. If it is really that important, shouldn’t we act like it? This is our greatest problem with evangelization. So many people calling themselves Christian but not many actually making it their #1 priority in their life. I know I’m guilty of this at times too.
Christianity is either our means of attaining eternal salvation and therefore an infinitely important law to live by, or it’s a cruel joke and a destructive lie. To embrace anything in between is to embrace some half-truth or distortion of reality.
Either Jesus is the means of our eternal salvation or he isn’t. There is no in between. If he is, then what else is left to do but to give every second of our entire life on Earth loving and following him. If he isn’t, then we should stop wasting our time and playing games.
For those of us that know he is, indeed, the means of eternal salvation – let us pray for each other that we start to more truly act like it.
