Quote from The Pilgrim’s Regress

The Man (Christ) speaking to John (protagonist). Christ begins:

“Your life has been saved all this day by crying out to something which you call by many names, and you have said to yourself that you used metaphors.”

“Was I wrong, sir?”

“Perhaps not. But you must play fair. If its help is not a metaphor, neither are its commands. If it can answer when you call, then it can speak without your asking. If you can go to it, it can come to you.”

“The Pilgrim’s Regress” by CS Lewis, Wade Annotated Edition (2014), p. 147.
