Pleasure as God’s Invention

Screwtape articulates the fact that when the devil enters the realm of pleasure he is dealing with Enemy ground:

Never forget that when we are dealing with any pleasure in its healthy and normal and satisfying form, we are, in a sense, on the Enemy’s ground…All the same, it is (pleasure) His (God’s) invention, not ours (Screwtape). –From Screwtape Letters, Letter IX
