“That which most emphatically belongs to God” by C.S. Lewis

“A man may have to die for our country: but no man must, in any exclusive sense, live for his country. He who surrenders himself without reservation to the temporal claims of a nation, or a party, or a class is rendering to Caesar that which, of all things, most emphatically belongs to God: himself.

–C. S. Lewis, “Learning in Wartime,” in The Weight of Glory: And Other Addresses (New York: HarperCollins, 1949/2001), 53.
