 C.S. Lewis, Narnia, Etc.
I like to mention a wide spectrum of subjects. Now, it’s time for folks to understand the real historybehind C. S. Lewis. C. S. Lewis is a famous controversial author. He was born in Belfast, Ireland,yet he was educated in an English prep school. He compared it to a concentration camp. Lewiswent into Malvern College and worked with a private tutor. He went into College and converted toChristianity by 1931. Lewis was in the Oxford literary circle called the Inkling. This group includedJ.R.R. Tolkien, and Charles Williams. C. S. Lewis died in November 22, 1963, which is the sametime as the JFK assassination. Lewis married Joy Davidman Gresham in 1957. Joy died in 1960,because of bone cancer. Narnia and other forms of literature are some of his most famous work.He was an Anglican and he accepted purgatory. Lewis isn’t the only person who embraced Papallike doctrines. Even another author named Tolkien admitted to one Jesuit friend that the Lord ofthe Rings is a Catholic religious work. The Tolkien manuscripts were owned by the JesuitMarquette University.
Lewis' so-called conversion is described by one of his friends in
Light on C. S. Lewis 
as having come about by thinking about certain issues.
On page 62 of that book it says,"…It did not come by sudden intuition, or overwhelming vision,or even by the more usual path of conviction of sin calling for repentance andatonement. It came by taking thought and it added many cubits to his stature."
 C. S. Lewis followed the heresy of praying for the dead and went to a priest regularly forconfession. He even received the sacrament of extreme unction on July, 16th, 1963 (asproven from C.S. Lewis: A Biography p. 301). Extreme unction was a sacrament that wasoffibliplly ministered only to Roman Catholics at that time. This is why some people viewC. S. Lewis as a closet Roman Catholic. Lewis believed in using spells, which isn't right.He believed that sincere pagans or Buddhists may reach Heaven. C. S. Lewis viewedHeaven's harps, crown, and gold as just symbolic when even Jesus admitted that Heavenliterally have mansions from John 14:2: "...
In my Father's house are many mansions: if itwere not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you..." C. L. Lewis denied
 
the literal Hell in existence. So, it's easy to see that C. S. Lewis was a slick religiousdeception in the world. One source says that following about C. S. Lewis:
"Clive Staples Lewis was anything but a classic evangelical, socially or theologically.
He smoked cigarettes and a pipe, and he regularly visited pubs to drink beer withfriends
. Though he shared basic Christian beliefs with evangelicals, he didn't subscribeto biblical inerrancy or penal substitution. He believed in
purgatory and baptismalregeneration
. How did someone with such a checkered pedigree come to be atheological Elvis Presley, adored by evangelicals?" -

C.S. LewisSuperstar 
, by Bob Smietana (December 2005, Vol. 49, No. 12, Page 28)
 
In C. Lewis’ “Mere Christianity,” he wrote the following words:
“…"When we come to man, the highest of the animals, we get the completestresemblance to God which we know of. ( 
 There may be creatures in other worlds who are more like God than man is, but we do not know about them
.) Man notonly lives, but loves and reasons: biological life reaches its highest known level inhim." [Ch. 1, 158-159].
This of course lays open all kinds of possibilities of aliens, greys,Martians, etc. "Others worlds," plural, does not mean he was talking strictly of heaven.The only beings that the Bible allows are God Himself; people; angles;cherubim/seraphim; and devils, including Satan. In the same book, Lewis wrote in favor of purgatory in the following words: "...whatever inconceivable purification it may cost youafter death." (p.108, 172, 174, 175, 182). Yet,2 Corinthians 5:6-8 is clear that:“…Therefore
we are
always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body,we are absent from the Lord: 7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) 8 We are confident,
say 
, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.…”C. S. Lewis admitted to prayer to the dead in the following quotation from the workentitled, “
Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer” 
:“…
Of course I pray for the dead. The action is so spontaneous, so all inevitable, that only themost compulsive theological case against it would deter me. And I hardly know how the restof my prayers would survive if those for the dead were forbidden..." (p.107)
C.S. Lewis is famous for writing the "Chronicles of Narnia." The third book of the Narnia serieswas entitled, "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.” According to Mary Ann Collins, the book directlypromotes spells and magic. One example is that in Chapter 10 called "The Magician Book,"shows a book of spells. These spells are located in an island inhabited by the invisible creaturescalled Dufflepuds. Lucy does a spell to make the Dufflepuds visible. She goes through a spellbook. She follows the instructions of the right spell. Aslan and the Dufflepuds are made visible forLucy to see after she does the spell. She is pleased with what she did. Some C.S. Lewisapologists say that Aslan represents Jesus and the children are representing Christians. Yet, thatfalse interpretation would imply that Jesus agrees with magic and spells, which is blasphemy.There are no such things as good spells or good magic. It's related to witchcraft that the OT (asfound in Deuteronomy 18:10-12 that God calls an abomination) and the NT forbids us to beinvolved with. The book describes the Dufflepuds as ruled by a wizard. When Lewis wrote theNarnia stories, Wicca didn't exist and witchcraft wasn't present overtly that much in the West.Now, witchcraft is very common in movies, TV, etc. that promote it openly. Disney promotes themagical movie of "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" too. The effort to merge Christianity withWicca is common theme of the establishment, yet real Christianity can never be merged with
 
Witchcraft at all. There are some other problems with C.S. Lewis' widespread influence. BlendingGod's truth with occult tales, he laid an enticing foundation for apostasy.For starters in understanding the man, here is a quotation from a letter that he wrote describing atrip that he and his wife Joy took to Greece in 1960. He wrote,“I had some ado to prevent Joy and myself from relapsing into Paganism in Attica! At Daphni itwas hard not to pray to Apollo the Healer. But somehow one didn’t feel it would have been verywrong."
 
For a time, Lewis was influenced by a school mistress (she was involved in Theosophy,Rosicrucianism, Spiritualism, and the whole Anglo-American occult tradition). This caused him totemporarily abandon his Anglican faith at age 13 according to his own autobiography called“Surprised by Joy.”
Lewis’ friend was named Owen Barfield. Lewis dedicated the Narniabooks to him and named Lucy after Barfield’s daughter. Barfield was a philosopher whostarted out with Theosophy and developed his own version of it.
He or Lewis accusedChristianity fulfilling paganism and paganism prefiguring Christianity. He's wrong since paganismabhors monotheism while Christianity is a part of monotheism. Christianity henceforth isantithetical to the concepts of Christianity indeed. C. S. Lewis said that he had a lust for the occulteven after he went back into Anglicanism. Disney's movie called "NARIA" is sick and perverted. Itshows a child being face to face with Pan. Pan is the false pagan fertility gods that pagan Wiccanwitches worship worldwide. In Wicca, there are god and goddess figures that are worshipped byWiccans (including other gods relating to Nature).
Berit Kjos, David Cloud, Mary Ann Collins,and other real Christians have exposed some of C. S. Lewis’ errors for years. I respecttheir insight beyond Paul Murphy’s deception. Murphy tries to issue legitimate criticismabout the Barack Obama administration as an excuse to influence people like me toaccept either Republican-lite or Tea Party like viewpoints on political matters. Also,Murphy doesn’t want his ilk to know that the federal government can promote theGeneral Welfare of the people (including the fact that Section 1, Section 8 of theConstitution allows the federal government to have taxes, duties, regulate commerceamong states plus nations,
have post offices
,
have roads
,
promote sciences & thearts
, and other responses). He attacks me via ad hominem attacks (when he offers noevidence that my work is garbage that he lies about. He’s such a liar and a red baiter.My reading comprehend skills are excellent regardless of what he types. So, I will neverbe intimidated by Left Gatekeepers or the Tea Party movement at all. That is why I’mmoving on from this man. I’m moving forward showing the real truth on issues like GMOfoods, the new world order, religious deception, war on terror issues, various events,and other things) since he supports the Anglican C. S. Lewis. That rhetoric from Murphyis old and tired. He doesn’t have to agree with me on every issue, but I will keep onliving my life and show my information without compromising my core convictions at all.
 
I’m saying no to wars, I’m saying no to torture, I’m saying no to economic
 
inequality, and I’m saying no to the Empire. These concepts are embraced
 
by people from across the political spectrum.
 God is timeless in his ways and has pure authority over the Universe without uncertainty.

So, I'm moving forward.

I'm moving forward and this is all that's needed to be mentioned at this moment. This is chess not checkers. The evidence about the Vatican and Lewis speaks for itself.

Carry on.

I think your old ad hominem stuff is old. People are moving forward in their lives. My reading comprehension skills are fine. You are obvious a deluded person or a shill in my eyes. I'm moving forward.
PRMurphy added this note
Your reading comprehension is seriously lacking. Work on it.
