Welcome to this week’s episode of the Screwtape Letters podcast, where we’re exploring the themes of fear and anxiety in Letter 8 of CS Lewis’ masterpiece.
In this letter, Screwtape urges his nephew, Wormwood, to use fear and anxiety as a means of distracting his “patient” from the truth of God’s love and mercy. Screwtape argues that by keeping his “patient” focused on his fears and worries, he’ll be less likely to see the goodness of God and more likely to fall into despair.
Lewis reminds us of the importance of faith and trust in God, even in the face of fear and uncertainty. He shows us how fear can be used as a tool of the enemy to distract us from the truth, and how we can overcome these obstacles by keeping our eyes fixed on God.
Join us as we dive deep into the wisdom and insights of Letter 8, and explore its relevance in our modern world. Gil and John will provide their unique perspectives and experiences, helping us to understand the power of faith and trust in overcoming the forces of darkness.
So tune in to this episode of the Screwtape Letters podcast, and let’s discover together the importance of remaining steadfast in our faith, even in the midst of fear and uncertainty.
