Last night, October 17, 2016, I had the privilege of hearing the noted historian, George Marsden, lecture at Palm Beach Atlantic University on the topic titled, “The Genius of C.S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity.”

The lecture was based on part of Marsden’s book, C.S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity: a Biography which was published earlier this year. Doing a biography of a book is an interesting approach. But books like Mere Christianity have had a life all to themselves. So it was a very appropriate approach.

The Scripture is both a glass to show your spots, and a laver to wash them away.

How do you respond when you have a fine Sunday dinner waiting on you, and the preacher has gone into overtime? This Lyle Lovett song tackles this issue with a jazzy, humorous solution.

My favorite line,

If a preacher preaches long enough, even he’ll get hungry, too.

And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
