The Gradual Slope to Hell

C. S. Lewis quote  the safest road to hell is the gradual oneLewis understood that most of us do not rush head first off the cliff into apostasy or ruinous unbelief.

Most of us do not go from upright citizen and supporter of our country to an act of traitorous betrayal.

There are very few who take the dramatic step from devoted spouse to flagrant and flippant adulterer.

Most of us do not go from worshippers to idolaters in the course of a week. It is so rare it is stunning when a white hot devotion becomes outright denial.
