What I couldn't see was how the life and death of Someone Else (whoever he was) 2000 years ago could help us here and now - except in so far as his example helped us. And the example business, though true and important, is not Christianity: right in the center of Christianity, in the Gospels and St. Paul, you keep on getting something quite different and very mysterious expressed in those phrases I have so often ridiculed ("propitiation" - "sacrifice" - "the blood of the Lamb") - expressions which I could only interpret in senses that seemed to me either silly or shocking. - C.S. Lewis

Rationalism will deny Christ everytime.

God does not do things the way that we would like them to be done.
