Man or Rabbit?

I really enjoyed reading this essay. The discussion in class was very nice to go along with the essay itself. This article by Lewis was written based on the question can a man lead a good life without Christianity? He states in the beginning what the materialist’ answer is, all I’m interested in is leading a good life. He then goes through a few positions not necessarily believing them to be true but rather for discussions sake.

Lewis brings up in the first paragraph the difference between a man and an animal. He states that the main difference between man and animals is that “man wants to know things, wants to find what reality is like, simply for the sake of knowing.” He calls the essay man or rabbit because what distinguishes man from the other animals is that he seeks knowledge and desires to find answers.

I very much agree with Lewis when he says that God will punish the wicked whether or not God has been revealed to them. Sometimes it does not seem very fare for them to be judged even though they were not aware when really all along they were. On this earth God's creation is a witness to everyone. It is very obvious to see that there must have been a creator in order for this universe to even exist. It speaks in the bible that God will not tolerate anyone who rejects the gospel.
