John the Evangelist (via philosophy-quotes)
If you ask me, the best argument for theism is an existential one. Blaise Pascal puts it so well. The following is taken from his Pensees:
"We desire truth, and find in ourselves nothing but uncertainty. We desire happiness, and find only wretchedness and death. We are incapable of not desiring truth and happiness and incapable of attaining certainty or happiness"
Lewis understands all that this means about the human, the image-bearer. My own shaky confidence hinges on his words, a sweet assurance of spiritual birthright:
"If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world.”
No resolution, yet so much relief.
In the meantime…
"Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as are perfect, have this attitude; and if in anything you have a different attitude, God will reveal that also to you.” (Philippians 3:13-15)
