Screwtape Letters Part 10

Chapter 20

No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it (I Corinthians 10:13 NASB).

Uncle Screwtape apparently has this verse in mind as he explains to his nephew that their best weapon against Christians is “the belief of ignorant humans, that there is no hope of getting rid of us except by yielding.”

Speak Your Mind
