A collector of rare books ran into an acquaintance who told him he had just thrown away an old Bible that he found in a dusty, old box. He happened to mention that Guten-somebody- or-other had printed it. "Not Gutenberg?" gasped the collector. "Yes, that was it!" "You idiot! You've thrown away one of the first books ever printed. A copy recently sold at auction for half a million dollars!" "Oh, I don't think this book would have been worth anything close to that much," replied the man. "It was scribbled all over in the margins by some clown named Martin Luther."
Last night I dreamed I ate a five-pound marshmallow.When I woke up, my pillow was gone.
Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds. - Genesis 9:14
I am trying here to prevent anyone from sayingthe really foolish thing that people often sayabout Him [Jesus Christ]: "I'm ready to acceptJesus as a great moral teacher, but I don'taccept His claim to be God."That is the one thing we must not say. A manwho was merely a man and said the sort ofthings Jesus said would not be a great moralteacher. He would either be a lunatic -- on alevel with a man who says he is a poachedegg -- or else he would be the Devil of Hell.You must make your choice. Either this Manwas, and is, the Son of God, or else a madmanor something worse ....You can shut Him up for fool, you can spitat Him and kill Him as a demon; or you canfall at His feet and call Him Lord and God.But let us not come up with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great humanteacher. He has not left that option opento us. He did not intend to. -- From C.S. Lewis(Author of The Chronicles of Narnia)
