The Atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ is the heart and core and center of revealed religion.

C.S. Lewis, Repentance


Fine feelings, new insights, greater interest in “religion” mean nothing unless they make our actual behaviour better; just as in an illness “feeling better” is not much good if the thermometer shows that your temperature is still going up.

In that sense the outer world is quite right to judge Christianity by its results. Christ told us to judge by results. A tree is known by its fruit; or, as we say, the proof of the pudding is in the eating.

When we Christians behave badly, or fail to behave well, we are making Christianity unbelievable to the outside world.
