— C.S. Lewis, in a letter to Arthur Greeves during the spark of Lewis’ conversion (via highchristology)
"Christian doctrines are not the main thing about Christianity. Instead, doctrines are translations of what God has expressed in a language more adequate: namely the actual incarnation, crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. The primary language of Christianity is a lived language— the real, historical, visible, tangible language of an actual person being born, dying, and living again in a new, inferably transformed way."
