This Mysterious Maker of the World–C.S. Lewis

The Gospels declare that this mysterious maker of the world has visited His world in person. The most that any religious prophet has said was that he was the true servant of such a being. But the Creator was present in the daily life of the Roman Empire–that is something unlike anything else in nature. It is the one great startling statement that man has made since he spoke his first articulate word. It makes dust and nonsense of comparative religion.

..when we can do all things.. C.S. Lewis

!!stpetewalking St. Peter for a few seconds walks on the water; and the day will come when there will be a re-made universe, infinitely obedient to the will of glorified and obedient men, when we can do all things, when we shall be those gods that we are described as being in Scripture. To be sure, it feels wintry enough still: but often in the very early spring it feels like that. Two thousand years are only a day or two by this scale. A man really ought to say, “The Resurrection happened two thousand years ago” in the same spirit in which he says, “I saw a crocus yesterday.” Because we know what is coming behind the crocus. The spring comes slowly down this way; but the great thing is that the corner has been turned.

from God in the Dock by C. S. Lewis
