The tendency to sacrifice truth for comfort seems practically hardwired into our psyches. In saying this, I need look no further than my own past to see how often I sacrificed truth on the altar of my own comfort. As a Muslim, I did not want to admit that the gospel was true, that Jesus is who the Bible claims he is, because doing so would cost me dearly…In the opening pages of his classic work Mere Christianity, [CS]Lewis makes an insightful comment about the tension between our pursuit of truth and our desire for comfort: “If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end: if you look for comfort, you will not get either comfort or truth—only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin with and, in the end, despair.” — Abdu Murray (from, Grand Central Question: Answering the Critical Concerns of the Major Worldviews)
