C. S. Lewis on post-Christian culture

“They err who say ‘the world is turning pagan again.’ Would that it were! The truth is that we are falling into a much worse state. ‘Post Christian man’ is not the same as ‘pre-Christian man.’ He is as far removed as virgin is from widow: there is nothing in common except the want of a spouse: but there is a great difference between a spouse-to-come and a spouse lost.”
—CS Lewis, Letter, March 17, 1953

  1. Far be it for me to disagree with St Lewis, but I think our culture is not a widow as far as Christian faith is concerned, but an angry, aggrieved, and sometimes vengeful estranged wife. Is that overstating it?
