Is a house still a house?

This week Jason and Sarah lead us thru the 4th chapter of Mere Christianity: What Lies Behind the Law.

Here Lewis talks about science's inability to prove or disprove truth about creation.  He speaks of facts, experiments and it all seems to lead to more questions.
If there was a controlling power outside the universe, it could not show itself to us as one of the facts inside the universe - no more than the architect of a house could actually be a wall or staircase or fireplace in that house.
I am attempting to follow Clive's train of thought, but my thoughts wander.  As a believer in One Creator Who Is all and Is in all, I think:

while the wall is not an architect
God Is the wall
the staircase
the flames burning hot
and the fireplace that contains them
He Is the house
and the One who built it.

Somehow I can't help but think that Mr. Lewis would agree.

yet for us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live.  1 Corinthians 8:6 NKJV

Stop by Jason's Connecting to Impact for more discussion of this weeks chapter.

I think he'd agree, too. Good post, Karin.

Karin,this reminds me of a story I heard a youth pastor telling once of an 11-year-old in his youth group. One of the other kids in the group asked how Jesus could have come through the door into the Upper Room. Before the youth pastor could answer, this sharp 11-year-old boy said, "Because Jesus was more real than the door." What an amazing, absolute truth!

Thanks for joining the discussion, Karin!
