    I am so glad you are back! You provide me with such a fun variety of news and thoughts. The Dawn Treader looks GREAT and I am looking forward to seeing the movie. I go to one or two big screen movies a year. This will be one of them. 🙂

    When I was a kid I devoured the Narnia series. When I got saved and started developing a bit of discernment I realized there is a problem with C.S.Lewis.

    In the last book the children are in Heaven with Aslan and there is a servant of Tash there. The servant of Tash is confused and says something like “Why am I here? In my life I served Tash, your enemy”.
    Aslan answers something like “You did good works in the name of Tash, and I accepted them as service for me. Any good work that is done is done for me.”

    Do you see the error here? C.S. Lewis is teaching a form of Universalism here. He is also teaching a form of works salvation.

    I’m not saying anything about Lewis’ salvation. I don’t know if he was saved or not, but he had some ideas that were unscriptural and dangerous.

    There were errors in the Screwtape letters as well.

    For these reasons I am not thrilled that they are creating more Narnia movies. Hollywood was never a friend of the true God.

    Hi Daniel,

    I also was bothered by the way Lewis dealt with the servant of Tash in The Last Battle. In fact, when I read the book to my children, I deliberately skipped over that part so as not to confuse them.

    That said, I wouldn’t be too concerned about C.S. Lewis’ theology. Although there are some areas where I disagree with him, he was definitely not a universalist, and he did not believe or teach salvation by works. Overall, his theology is quite sound, and his writings have helped many Christians over the years grow in their understanding of God in a good way.

    Thanks for commenting!

    It is a fantasy book, not a theological work, you nuts.

    “when I got saved”, how arrogant, to think that a human can know when he is saved.



  6. Fred,

    What a silly comment. How does one respond to “get a life”?

    My life is in Christ. He is all that matters to me. C.S. Lewis’ books are an attack on the biblical Jesus Christ. The Narnia series is a children’s version of “Mere Christianity”, complete with false gospel and the universalism. “Christianity is the fulfillment of mythology” – Lewis.

    When Lewis died he was in the process of joining the Roman Catholic church. Any serious bible scholar will see the parallels between the Roman church and the Harlot of Revelation.

    Lewis was not a serious bible scholar, though he appears to be the patron saint of the apostasy.

    And Alessio, read the bible. You can know when you got saved. Read the book of John, 1st John and Romans. It is very clear. If you don’t know if you are saved or not, you are not. Simple!

  7. Alessio,

    Fantasy is often used as a venue to teach concepts to children (and adults). Just because something is fantasy does not mean that its intent was not to teach something.

    Lewis was using fantasy to teach his erroneous worldview to unsuspecting readers. I know because of the effect it had on me as a teen. It has taken decades to shake off that garbage.

    I am not saying Lewis was 100% wrong. There was enough truth there to make his ideas seem plausible. Poison can be pretty bitter unless you mix it with sugar.

    Daniel Knezacek,

    I have to agree with Alessio, this is a fantasy book… and though it references the bible, it is not necessarily written purely as a way to teach children the ways of Christianity, but it is mainly to entertain people. When you said “Fantasy is often used as a venue to teach concepts to children (and adults).”, you were really only touching on the basis of the bible. The bible itself was not written to communicate a truth, but to communicate key lessons and societal laws. So, by saying C.S. Lewis is “wrong” in his writing and “beliefs”, you must also say the bible is wrong; for it is a work of fantasy used as a venue to teach concepts to children, and 40 year old children who don’t know any better…

    The Atheist.
