As a child, my grandfather, a Baptist pastor, gave me and my sisters a set of C.S. Lewis’ popular Narnia series.
This was, for me, the beginning of a love affair with Lewis and his theology. From the Narnia series, which I read several times, and from there went on to read Mere Christianity, and some of his other works. It was not until I was in my 30s that I began to question the ideas I had learned as a young man, from one of the most popular “Christian” authors of the twentieth century.
Was Lewis wrong about everything? No, but there was enough spiritual poison mixed in with the truth, as it were. Lewis’ fascination with the occult, and ecumenism, are some of his more notable errors, and these combined are leading millions of Christians into serious theological error.
This has to be. The bible predicts that professing Christianity will fall into apostasy in the End Times, but woe to those Christians who think it is safe to make Lewis’ work an important part of your life.
While Lewis’ stories can be fun, they have an over-all negative impact on the reader, and especially young minds.
This last week I stumbled upon Brian Moonan’s videos, and knowing something about Lewis, I found that these videos really do an excellent job of pointing out his serious errors.
They may take a while to watch, but I do recommend them. I would also recommend checking out Brian’s page on Youtube.
Brian may not agree with me on every point of eschatology, but from viewing a handful of his videos, I can say that I view him as a fellow traveller, and a brother in Christ.
