There are certain things in Christianity that can be understood from the outside, before you have become a Christian. But there are a great many things that cannot be understood until after you have gone a certain distance along the Christian road. — C. S. Lewis
This has certainly been my experience. The deeper I grow into the faith, the farther I walk along the trail blazed by Jesus, the more sense Christianity makes.
C. S. Lewis, “Faith,” in Mere Christianity (1952).
