C.S. Lewis' statement that the doors of Hell are locked from the inside?
It means that people keep themselves in Hell. The lock is on the inside of the door, which means they locked it and (potentially, at least) could unlock it. His meaning is colorfully illustrated in on of his shorter books, The Great Divorce. The quote itself appears in The Problem of Pain: "Finally, it is objected that the ultimate loss of a single soul means the defeat of omnipotence. And so it does. In creating beings with free will, omnipotence from the outset submits to the possibility of such defeat. What you call defeat, I call miracle: for to make things which are not Itself, and thus to become, in a sense, capable of being resisted by its own handiwork, is the most astonishing and unimaginable of all the feats we attribute to the Deity. I willingly believe that the damned are, in one sense, successful, rebels to the end; that the doors of hell are locked on the inside."

First, if it is a rear door, check the child lock. This is usually a small tab on the back of the door (the part that is only accessible when the door is open). If it's not the child lock, then it's a bit more complicated. We can guess that there is nothing wrong with the latch mechanism itself, …because it sounds like the door opens fine from the outside. First, you need to remove the interior door trim panel. There are usually a few screws that hold it on. Sometimes they are hidden behind little plastic covers that need to be popped off with a flat screwdriver. Most door panels are also held on by a dozen or so "Christmas tree" fasteners, which are clips that just pop in and out. You can get a special tool to help unclip these at most auto part stores for about $10. It can be done by hand, but it can be quite difficult. Once all of the screws and clips are undone, the panel will be hanging on the door from the top and should be lifted up and away from the door. As you do this, check for wire harnesses and anything else that may need to be disconnected. With the interior panel removed, you should now have access to the inner workings of the door. There may be a plastic film covering it up. You can just peel it off and set it aside. Now you need to figure out what's broken. Look at the interior panel that you removed. When you pull the interior door handle, what moves? Follow the mechanism on the inside until you find something broken or disconnected, and then repair accordingly. To reassemble, reverse these steps. Good luck! ( Full Answer )

If its the drivers door lock switch not working, 99 times out of 100 the problem is a corroded/broken splice in the wires. The wires/splice run under the passenger side carpet. Remove the passenger side plastic door-sill plate and pull up the carpet revealing the wire harness. Unwrap the electrical …tape, find the solid white wire and solid light-blue wire. On the white and blue wire there is a splice(wrapped in electrical tape) with 2 wires splicing into one wire.

CS Lewis married his wife, Joy Davidman Gresham, twice. The first time Lewis married Joy was on 23 April 1956 in a secret civil ceremony because the British Home Office would not allow her residency permit to be continued.

The second time, on 21 March 1957, Lewis married her in accordance with the rites of the Church of England. At this stage, Joy was believed to be dying from bone cancer, and the ceremony was carried out at her hospital bedside. Incidentally, Joy enjoyed a temporary remission, and died three years later, in 1960. ( Full Answer )

Although he isn't necessarily a hero in the usual sense of that word, C S Lewis is widely respected for his explanation of the existence of God and defense of Christianity. He was not a theologian, and he was well into middle age when he became a Christian. Perhaps for these reasons, his writings …are readily understood by laypersons. On the other hand, his ideas about female clergy and the role of music in worship (he was opposed to both) would be considered out of date by most Christians today. ( Full Answer )

Lewis was a university professor at Oxford and later Cambridge, two of the most famous universities in the world.
CS Lewis became a Christian at the age of 31, in 1930, when he decided he could no longer pretend that God existed because the evidence for him (God) was too great. This was after long discussions and intellectual battles with Christian and fellow writer JRR Tolkien ( Lord of the Rings ).
Generally speaking, they came from his imagination, although they reflected his Christian beliefs. He said in a letter that for him the books started with an image or picture in his mind, such as a faun carrying parcels in a snowstorm (The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe). He would usually have 2 …or 3 such images and then try to make a story that would connect them in some ways. Aslan came from him having dreams about lions while working on the story. ( Full Answer )
