In this essay Lewis talks about people's longing to be a part of something bigger or a group. In this case "The-Inner-Ring". I know this to be a fact, because in my psychology class we learned that it is a part of our genetic makeup, this longing to be a part of something bigger. We don' t want to be unique, we don't want to be a different, we want to be just like everyone else. We always strive to be in group, wheter it be big or small. We are even willing to be something completely different then what really are. Just to fit into into a group.
As Christians we are called to be different from the majority of the world. Which goes against our genetics and science it self. When we choose to live for God and become Christians we choose to to be completely different from the world. We have to put up with people looking at us weird or treating us different. Just because we are not the same as them. We can find comfort though that we are not alone in this. We are a part of the Body of Christ. So at the same time that we may feel alone in this world we are not. We have fellow Christians out there that believe the same thing we do.
