CS LEWIS, RELUCTANT CHRISTIAN

'Then their eyes were opened and they knew Him...' Luke 24:31 NKJ

 

You’ve read the book The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe? Or seen the movie The Voyage of the ‘Dawn Treader’? The Christian themes are pretty obvious, huh? Yet the author CS Lewis was once a hardcore atheist and wrote tracts defending it. He said, ‘I maintained God did not exist. I was also angry with God for not existing.’ Then two friends of his, JRR Tolkien (yup, the guy who wrote The Lord of The Rings) and HVD Dyson, both devout followers of Jesus, urged him to do something he’d never done before: read the Bible.

So he did. He began to wrestle with the things Jesus said. And eventually he came to a realisation: Jesus was either a loony, or a brilliant conman, or exactly who He claimed to be. No other options. There was a big jump to concluding Jesus was the Son of God, and Lewis knew it.

He talked it through with his friends. There was no denying it, the Bible made massive claims about truth and reality. One evening he and friends took a long walk and chatted late into the night. Soon afterwards, Lewis became a believer. Eventually he was so famous the Atheist Society had to stop using those tracts he wrote. His world turned around and, as a result, so did the worlds of millions of readers. Could it be this simple? Could the chasm between doubt and faith be spanned with just the Bible and Christian friends?

If you know friends questioning God or interrogating faith right now—don’t write them off! Talk to God about the questions you can ask them to help them work things through.
