C S Lewis, apparently in Mere Christianity, does mention the concept of not knowing the concept of dark or light: My argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust. But how had I got this idea of just and unjust? A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line. What was I comparing this universe with ...
The concept is present in C.S. Lewis's "The Silver Chair" (towards the end, when the witch is seeking to convince the Children, Puddleglum and Prince Rilian that Narnia & Aslan are just fantasies - and it's actually not even all of life - just a long time), I wouldn't be surprised if he also had something to that effect in "Mere Christianity".
Of course it isn't wrong to fellowship with other human beings. Just remember that it may take some time to find a group who feels the same way, but it will be worth it. Look for the enlightened ones who welcome you with open arms.
In the Christian and Missionary Alliance Church (C&MA) of which I am a member, you would definitely be welcome when attending almost any gathering of church members, whether large or small, plenary or small group. Our church has "ministries" for almost every age group and for almost every conceivable interest or need (e.g., divorce recovery, 12-step ...
A Catholic Official Position Catholics absolutely welcome atheists or anyone else to attend Holy Mass. Unfortunately, as suggested elsewhere, we do not feel it is appropriate for most non-Catholics to receive Holy Communion. For example, a norm developed by the National Conference of Catholic Bishops (later the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops) reminds ...

In the most general terms, yes - most congregations are open to non-member participation. Saying that, it is possible different congregations have a nuanced stance in this regard - some of their meetings may be closed and it is best to ...
From the point of view of a Seventh-Day Adventist, we welcome unbelievers, because many in the church have come from Atheism. You would be welcome with open arms.
There is a lot of talk about Godless men, which would be someone that likely doesn't believe in God or fear God (or any gods) -- usually one or the other. Psalms 14:1 - The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." Psalms 10:4 - The wicked, in the haughtiness of his countenance, does not seek Him. All his thoughts are, "There is no God." ...
No. But many atheist agree with a lot of Jesus' messages from the Bible. I'd say most atheist, or non-believers are politically, progressive. They look at Jesus' teachings, and believe em to be socialist. Many look at Jesus, in the same light as Gandhi, MLK Jr. etc. But no, you are not a atheist! My guess: You will probably decide to believe or not, when you ...
