CQOD: 04/24/07 -- Lewis: the true language of Christian doctrine

Christian Quotation of the Day

April 24, 2007
Commemoration of Mellitus, First Bishop of London, 624
    For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me.
    -- 1 Corinthians 15:3-8 (ESV)

    The [Christian] “doctrines” are translations into our concepts and ideas of that which God has already expressed in language more adequate, namely the actual incarnation, crucifixion, and resurrection.
    ... C. S. Lewis (1898-1963), letter [1931]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may I never forget Your Passion, even for a moment.
