Lewis: moderate importance?

    Feast of Michael & All Angels
    Then Jesus entered a house, and again a crowd gathered, so that he and his disciples were not even able to eat. When his family heard about this, they went to take charge of him, for they said, “He is out of his mind.”
    And the teachers of the law who came down from Jerusalem said, “He is possessed by Beelzebub! By the prince of demons he is driving out demons.”
    So Jesus called them and spoke to them in parables: “How can Satan drive out Satan? If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.”
    —Mark 3:20-24 (NIV)
    Christianity is a statement which, if false, is of no importance, and, if true, of infinite importance. The one thing it cannot be is moderately important.
    ... C. S. Lewis (1898-1963), “Christian Apologetics”, in God in the Dock [1970], ed. Walter Hooper, Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1994, p. 101 (see the book)
    See also Mark 3:20-24; Ps. 119:142; Mark 9:41-47; Luke 2:10-14; 1 Cor. 15:53-54; 1 Tim. 4:8
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, only in You can the cosmos make sense.
