Luther and Lewis

From this we should also learn to become hostile to our unbelief and to oppose it, since it is always stirred up in distress and danger and immediately wants to despair of all comfort and help, if it does not see the help and counsel in our own power. We should get into the habit of thinking that Christ can do and does do more and greater things than we can understand or believe.—Martin Luther, Sermon for Trinity 7, AE 78:263

To say that God ‘enters’ the natural order involves just as much spacial imagery as to say that He ‘comes down’, one has simply substituted horizontal (or undefined) for vertical movement.—C. S. Lewis, Business of Heaven, p. 194.
