Once Upon A Time…

The imaginations (ie. fantasies) of the unbeliever flow from an attempt to create a world greater than the reality they believe exists.  The imagination of the Christian (as seen in the writings of Lewis and Tolkien) is an attempt to grasp a small glimpse of a truth and reality that is far greater than anything their limited minds could comprehend.  As Paul writes in 1 Cor.2:9, “However, as it is written: ‘No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him.'” The unbeliever uses fantasy to escape reality.  The Christian should use fantasy to embrace, enjoy, and anticipate reality.
