“Next to the Blessed Sacrament itself, your neighbor is the holiest object presented to your senses.”
I love Lewis. I think he is worth more than several Reformed theologians that wisdom forbids me to name. At his worst he proves Nietzsche’s dictum that the mistakes of great men are more important than the truths of others. I need to read all of his works and re-read what I have read. I thank God for his voice in modern times.
But this quotation shows that the form of Lewis’ discipleship in public worship had pointed him in the direction of madness.
Because if you don’t notice your neighbor with your senses there chewing and slurping next to you then you are
DOING IT FREAKING WRONG!!!
I also love all the Christians in all the communions whose way of doing the Lord’s Supper I have just attacked in public.
Some things just will not be denied. Had to write this and post it.
Grape juice is an abomination too. So is excluding young children (as is my point here since they are also neighbors). I’m not claiming to be without sin here. God have mercy on us all.
But your neighbors in Church are part of the Blessed Sacrament. Without them, you end up eating and drinking judgment on yourself.
