REFUSAL TO WORSHIP
A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word “darkness” on the walls of his cell. But God wills our good, and our good is to love Him (with that responsive love proper to creatures) and to love Him we must know Him: and if we know Him, we shall in fact fall on our faces.
—C. S. Lewis, THE PROBLEM OF PAIN, Chapter 3, “Divine Goodness,” New York: Macmillan Company, 1948, p. 41. Modern edition—HarperSanFrancisco, 2001, ISBN 0060652969.
