    2. 2. “One thing I can promise you. In spite of all theunfortunate differences between Christians, what theyagree on is still something pretty big and pretty solid:big enough to blow any of us sky-high if it happens tobe true. And if it’s true, it’s quite ridiculous to put offdoing anything about it simply because Christiansdon’t fully agree among themselves. That’s as if a manbleeding to death refused medical assistance becausehe’d heard that some doctors differed about thetreatment of cancer. For if Christianity is true at all, it’sas serious as that.” C.S. Lewis Introduction to broadcast 11 January 1942

    12. 12. “So far as I can judge from the reviews and from the numerousletters written to me, the book, however faulty is other respects,did at least succeed in presenting an agreed, or common, orcentral, or ‘mere’ Christianity. In that way it may possibly be ofsome help in silencing the view that, if we omit the disputedpoints, we shall have left only a vague and bloodless H.C.F.” (6 -7)
    13. 13. A Whole Number that Common factors are divides exactly into numbers held in another Whole Number. common: 1x8=2x4=8i.e. 1 x 12 = 2 x 6 = 3 x 4 = 124 x 5 = 204 and 5 are both factors of 20
    14. 14. A Whole Number that Common factors are divides exactly into numbers held in another Whole Number. common: 1x8=2x4=8i.e. 1 x 12 = 2 x 6 = 3 x 4 = 124 x 5 = 204 and 5 are both factors of 20
    15. 15. A Whole Number that Common factors are numbers divides exactly into held in common: another Whole 1x8=2x4=8 Number. 1 x 12 = 2 x 6 = 3 x 4 = 12i.e. HIGHEST COMMON FACTOR4 x 5 = 20 The largest/highest of the common factors, in this case:4 and 5 are both factors of 20
    16. 16. Common factors are numbersA Whole Number that held in common: divides exactly into another Whole 1x8=2x4=8 Number. 1 x 12 = 2 x 6 = 3 x 4 = 12i.e. HIGHEST COMMON FACTOR4 x 5 = 20 The largest/highest of the common factors, in this case:4 and 5 are both factors of 20 4
    17. 17. …at the centre of each there is a something, or a Someone,who against all divergencies of belief, all differences oftemperament, all memories of mutual persecution, speakswith the same voice. (7)

    20. 20.  Do you agree with Lewis that we can all appeal to an objective sense of what is right and wrong  What does Lewis say about the (a God-given conception of the limitations of Science? Why Moral Law?) doesn’t science pose a real challenge to belief in God? How is the Law of Human  According to Lewis, Christianity Nature/Moral Law only begins to make sense when distinguished from other we have realized a few hard facts laws? about the kind of universe we live in. What, in his view, are the illusions that people have to give In our postmodern society, many up before Christianity can begin argue that morality is relative to to speak to them?
