Christianity Is Not One More Bit Of Good Advice

"If Christianity only means one more bit of good advice, then Christianity is of no importance. There has been no lack of good advice for the last four thousand years. A bit more makes no difference."

C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity (1943)

Yes!

Thank you for this quote - just what I needed as I am working on a couple of sermons.

In Christ,

I'm glad that this came in handy for you, Peter. It's one of my favorite C. S. Lewis quotes.

C. S. Lewis is always insightful and his perspective thought provoking. Your quote brings to mind another by Lewis:
"All that we call human history—money, poverty, ambition, war, prostitution, classes, empires, slavery— is the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will make him happy."
