It’s not over yet

Here is something I read on Facebook.

It’s not over yet

by Kaeley Triller Harms

We watched “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe” with the kids again the other night. For as many times as I’ve read the book or watched the movie, I always seem to pick up something new.

One scene in particular stood out to me. It’s the scene where all the White Witch’s goblins and demons are dancing victoriously around the body of the slain Aslan, celebrating the triumph of evil over all that is good and worthy, woefully unaware of what’s about to happen next.

They’re basking in the mistaken prospect of an eternity where it’s always winter, but never Christmas.

Lately, it feels like the world is stuck in this scene from Narnia. It’s a world where, as Holden Caulfield put it, “People clap for all the wrong things.”

Animals now have more legal protections than babies. Little girls’ are being used as human shields for grown men. “Sex work” is liberating. Loving boundaries are bigotry. Material reality is oppression. Truth is hate speech. Women are threatened, deplatformed, and silenced while the ghouls dance around in gleeful satisfaction at the destruction they are calling triumph.

But the truth they do not realize, the truth we must remember, is that Aslan isn’t dead forever. Darkness never wins in the end.

“Wrong will be right, when Aslan comes in sight,
At the sound of his roar, sorrows will be no more,
When he bares his teeth, winter meets its death,
And when he shakes his mane, we shall have spring again.”

For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. (Exodus 20:11)
