Get the real thing

“Creatures are not born with desires unless satisfaction for those desires exists.

A baby feels hunger: well, there is such a thing as food. A duckling wants to swim: well, there is such a thing as water. Men feel sexual desire: well, there is such a thing as sex.

If I find myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world. If none of my earthly pleasures satisfy it, that does not prove that the universe is a fraud.

Probably earthly pleasures were never meant to satisfy it, but only arouse it, to suggest the real thing.”

~ CS Lewis from Mere Christianity

One thought on “Get the real thing

  1. Hey man. You have a fantastic testimony. Truly, it is a life that shines the light of God the clearest. Seems like you like C.S Lewis’s mere christianity too? haha. That my fav book. Here my favourite quote of his i like to share with you.

    “Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.”
    -C.S Lewis
