Actually Victory is not a natural conclusion to Battle...or rather it is, but as natural as defeat is. I guess you wouldnt call the Defeat a Reward, but the way he has put it seems like if you want it the most, your reward is getting it which is a natural conclusion to having wanted it.

Tell that to all the MMA fighters who ever lost a match You obviously didnt want victory, you didnt long enough for your reward.

Also...marriage cant be the only outcome of love. What about all those people who love but never find the right person to marry...what about the people who cant marry for whatever reason?

So if we dont get married, we dont get the proper reward for love...hinting..what exactly? that there is something lacking in our love? that we dont or cant love? or worse...that sometimes you can want and not be given the reward by GOD?

I think your walking in the wrong direction.

Your taking it personally when infact I think he is saying what you already know.

The joys of love are often lost on those in your situation that find difficulty in that marital relationship.

You yourself have often discussed bouts with depression related to the topic.

He strong buddy keep the faith.

It's also quite vague. If you look at it from a philosophical point if you want something bad enoguh you can feel it and taste and therefore you some degree have even achieved it with your will to have it.

One thing is true it's not all about the destination it's about the journey.

People lose out on a lot of thel essons God has to teach by strictly concentrating on either death or life.

we have to take both completely and learn from them together because that's the only way to get a complete education.

I dont really know what he's saying...just skimming the text, I could tell it wasnt going to be something I wanted to read to be fair...this might have been the reason I stopped reading him whenever I got to reading this bit before.

I have read the screwtape letters...but I didnt get much out of that, its been a long time since I've read that

Yeah I am very keen to get onto his other works now especially the Screwtape letters!

Well, "Mere Christianity", I would not describe as mystic in any sense of the word.

Dave, you give me your address, I'll get it for ya for Christmas but only on the condition that your review of it is only 250 words long!!

Great book though and recommend any of you to ask for it as a stocking filler!
