The Screwtape Letters (CS Lewis)

July 30, 2013  •  78 Comments

          Recently I had the joy of reading CS Lewis' "The Screwtape Letters". The basic format of the book is thru the narrative of a teacher devil corresponding with a student devil on his progress of manipulating a patient (human being) into siding with the Devil, and not with God. There were alot of gems expressed in a metaphorical, and sometimes literal nature describing the human conflict of existing in the spiritual versus the material. For the drawing, I created a portrait of Wormwood (the student devil), and how I felt he would look, and added an excerpt from the book. In the excerpt, I like how it beautifully describes the devil tempting to take man out of the present moment, distracting him with the past/and or present, beacuse it is in the present moment where the individual arrives at that sacred communion with the eternal nature. Enjoy!wormwood (based on CS Lewis' The Screwtape Letters), ink on paper, 5.5"x 8.5", 2013

'...the present is the point at which time touches eternity. Of the present moment, and of it only, humans have an experience analogous to the experience which our enemy (god) has of reality as a whole; in it alone freedom and actuality are offered them. He would therefore have them continually concerned either with eternity (which means being concerned with him) or with the present. Either meditating on their eternal union with, or separation from, himself, or else obeying the present voice of conscience bearing the present cross, receiving the present grace, giving thanks for the present pleasure.

        Our business is to get them away from the eternal and from the present with this view, we sometimes tempt a human to live in the past. But this is of limited value for they have some real knowledge of the past and it has a determinate nature and, to that extent resembles eternity. It is far better to make them live in the future. Biological necessity makes all their passions point in the direction already, so that thoughts about the future inflames hope and fear... in a word, the future is, of all things, the thing least like eternity.'- CS Lewis
