The Primary Sin

C. S. Lewis deals so deftly with the issue of pride, well, deftly until it hits you like a sledge hammer. Today, Lewis from The Problem of Pain, on pride: “…it is the fall in every individual life, and in each day of each individual life, the basic sin behind all particular sins: at this very moment you and I are either committing it, or about to commit it, or repenting it.”

Though he and I have never met, I think he’s got that about right.
