(Unintended) Comic Relief

After the intensity of the last half-dozen or so posts, variety demands a bit of relief. Fortunately, the liberal left has unwittingly supplied a beaut. In the video below, the intent was to make God look like a vengeful, capricious woman; but the unwitting message is far deeper -- while still presented humorously. Take a look:

IKE INTERVIEWS GOD from Eli Shapiro on Vimeo.

As you see, the short has won all kinds of plaudits, being a low-budget film shot while the author was still in school. And it is indeed cleverly staged, and well acted.

But the underlying message? The liberals have missed it completely, of course, because it squares entirely with their worldview. The message this video so well conveys was expressed in this way by C.S. Lewis, in chapter 9 of the Great Divorce:

“There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, 'Thy will be done,' And those to whom God says, in the end, 'Thy will be done.'”
He added:
“All that are in Hell, choose it. Without that self-choice there could be no Hell. No soul that seriously and constantly desires joy will ever miss it. Those who seek find. To those who knock it is opened.”

  1. Precisely. The soul of levity is brevity. The soul of Truth is best described in few words. It is Truth, itself.
