Finish reading the Narnia series.
I’m almost finished. Summer is almost over. The Last Battle by C.S. Lewis (© 1956) is most intriguing so far (I’m almost halfway).“By heaven, you make me mad,” said Tirian. “Which of us said that was Aslan? That is the Ape's imitation of the real Aslan. Can't you understand?"
“And you’ve got a better imitation, I suppose!” said Griffle. “No thanks. We’ve been fooled once and we’re not going to be fooled again.” (p 90)
The world offers so many imitations of God. They often fool us. We worship for awhile at their feet, until we realize we’re wasting our time there. But the experience can taint us so much that we fail to recognize the true God when He appears.
“Tirian had never dreamed that one of the results of an Ape’s setting up a false Aslan would be to stop people from believing in the real one.”God was so wise in establishing His first commandment:
~ Exodus 20:3
What imitation gods have I worshiped this summer?
