If Christianity is untrue, then no honest man will want to believe it, however helpful it might be; if it is true, every honest man will want to believe it, even if it gives him no help at all.
From his essay, “Man or Rabbit”.
This is as direct, and blunt as it gets. Old Clive Staples had, of course, nothing against the good works and the morality that Christians usually preach. Just that he knew that Christianity as being “helpful” is not the same as it being true. He was, properly in my view, scornful of preachers who might emphasize the goodness of being Christian at the expense of the truth of being Christian.
