I know I am awful. But how much more awful should I be without the faith

excerpted from C.S. Lewis’s book ” God in the Dock”

“Take the case of a sour old maid, who is a Christian, but a cantankerous. On the other hand, take some pleasant  and popular fellow, but who has never been to church. Who knows how much more cantankerous the old maid might be if she were not a Christian, and how much more likable the nice fellow might be if he were a Christian? You can’t judge Christianity simply by comparing the product in these two people; you would need to know what kind of raw material Christ was working on in both cases.”
