Luther and Lewis

For it is human freedom when laws are changed without  effecting any change in men, but it is Christian freedom when men are changed without changing the Law. Consequently the same Law that was formerly hateful to free will now becomes delightful, since love is poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit.—Martin Luther, Great Galatians

To be sure, if it were true that civilization will never be safe till it is put second, that immediately raises the question, second to what? What is the first thing? The only reply I offer here is that if we do not know, then the first and only truly practical thing is to set about finding out.—C. S. Lewis, Business of Heaven, p. 184.
