In The Silver Chair (The Chronicles of Narnia #4) , the green witch is trying to convince the Narnians who have come to rescue the captured Prince Rilian that there is no such thing as Narnia, Aslan, or even the Sun so that they will not be free. Puddleglum, a Marshwiggle, gets to the point where he says that although the witch paints a convincing picture under her evil spell, and though reality may only be what she says it is—underground, no Narnia, no Aslan, no Sun—yet the reality that he believes in is stronger and more real and therefore he will choose to believe in that and live like it exists, rather than believe her reality.
How about us? We claim to believe that there is more to this world than what we see. We claim that we are bound for Heaven, slaves of God doing His will. If we live like those that are slaves to sin, preoccupied with this reality that is only a shadow, what does that say about what we truly believe in our heart of hearts?
