“God’s megaphone” by C.S. Lewis

“God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pain: it is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world.”

–C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain (New York: HarperCollins, 1940/1996), 91.

    We don’t have to wait for GOD to speak to us through a painful experience. We must heed GOD now.

    Tripe, drivel and phlegm – at a point the onslaught of the ‘megaphone’ numbs the soul to mindless mush, yielding little beyond self-preserving reply rather than meaningful engagement.
