Your Conscience Gives You No Escape

On the Law of Human Nature

“These, then are the two points I wanted to make. First, that human beings, all over the earth, have this curious idea that they ought to behave in a certain way, and cannot really get rid of it. Secondly, that they do not in fact behave in that way. They know the law of Nature; they break it. These two facts are the foundation of all clear thinking about ourselves and the universe we live in.”

Mere Christianity, 21
by C.S. Lewis

There is a law written in all of our hearts. We can ignore it and often do. We can deny it has a claim on us, but it does. We can’t escape it and it will crush us because it will indict us in the end.

And that’s why we need a Savior.
