C.S. Lewis on Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.”

C.S. Lewis

Somehow I think that if C.S. Lewis was alive and living in the U.S. today, he’d be shaking his head at where our nation is heading.

I shake my head because we Christians should have done better, should be doing better, to meet people’s needs, to alleviate fear, so that they wouldn’t be clamoring to an all-too-ready government to “save” them.

    This is Luke!
    I agree. If we were doing more, people wouldn’t as readily turn to their government instead of their church or neighbor.
