“If the whole universe has no meaning, we should never have found that it has no meaning: just as, if there were no light in the universe and therefore no creatures with eyes, we should never know it was dark. Dark would be a word without meaning.” — C.S. Lewis in Mere Christianity
Dark would be a word without meaning. That particular sentence struck me. So simple, and yet so profound.
How would we, as humans, understand dark, if we didn’t have the light to compare it with?
How can we know when we do morally bad things, if there is not perfection to compare it with?
In a world of moral relativism, where it’s become okay to do something if “it feels right”, or “I’m not hurting anyone so I’ll do what I want”.
Some, choose to live blind… in the dark, rather than admit that God is.
God is the absolute.
He is truth.
and it is He that gives this life meaning.
