In The Joyful Christian, C.S. Lewis (cited by Brian Jones in Second Guessing God) had this to say about the necessity of faith: “. . .Faith is such a necessary virtue: unless you teach your moods ‘where they get off’, you can never be either a sound Christian or even a sound atheist, but just a creature dithering to and fro, with its beliefs really dependent on the weather and the state of its digestion. Consequently one must train the habit of faith.” Adversity is an opportune time to develop a consistent faith.
