(Part 2) C.S. Lewis: What Did He Really Believe About The Bible?

“There are people in other religions who are being led by God’s secret influence to concentrate on those parts of their religion which are in agreement with Christianity, and who thus belong to Christ without knowing it. For example, a Buddhist of good will may be led to concentrate more and more on the Buddhist teaching about mercy and to leave in the background (though he might still say he believed) the Buddhist teaching on certain other points.” C.S. Lewis “Mere Christianity” page 111 from a pdf format

There are people in other religions who are being led by God’s secret influence to concentrate on those parts of their religion-C.S. Lewis

This completely contradicts the Scriptures. In Matthew 23:15, it says, “15 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to make one proselyte, and when he becomes one, you make him twice as fit for hell as you are!” This is what false religion gets you, hell. The Holy Spirit will never tell you to stay or cling to some “truth” of that religion. He won’t do that because the only way to heaven is through Jesus Christ as seen in John 14:6 which says, “6 Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

In Revelation 18:4 God tells His people, those who got saved through faith in Jesus Christ during the Great Tribulation, but are still stuck in that false religion due to ignorance, to leave it. The Lord is telling them to flee because He is going to judge that false church that is deceiving masses of people. The Lord will never tell you to stay once you are saved in a false religion like C.S. Lewis wants you to believe. He is not getting it from the Holy Spirit but some other spirit.

4 Then I heard another voice from heaven:

Come out of her, My people,
so that you will not share in her sins
or receive any of her plagues.

-Revelation 18:4

which are in agreement with Christianity, and who thus belong to Christ without knowing it.-C.S. Lewis

False religion does not have anything in common with the truth as found in the Scriptures. Read below.

14 Do not be mismatched with unbelievers. For what partnership is there between righteousness and lawlessness? Or what fellowship does light have with darkness? 15 What agreement does Christ have with Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? 16 And what agreement does God’s sanctuary have with idols?…

-2 Corinthians 6:14-16a

How can anyone belong to Christ in a false church that is teaching erroneous doctrines about Jesus? In Galatians 1, Paul is warning the church about believing in a false gospel [teaching] because it will not save anyone, but will put you under God’s wrath. Read below.

6 I am amazed that you are so quickly turning away from Him who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— 7 not that there is another gospel, but there are some who are troubling you and want to change the good news about the Messiah. 8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel other than what we have preached to you, a curse be on him! 9 As we have said before, I now say again: If anyone preaches to you a gospel contrary to what you received, a curse be on him!

-Galatians 1:6-9

C.S. Lewis gives an example of a Buddhist who still says that he is one, but somehow he can find Christ by following some good teachings of mercy. My friends, you can only find Christ by hearing the message of Jesus Christ and what He did for you on the cross. Without the gospel preached to you, you cannot get saved, period. Read below.

17 So faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the message about Christ.

-Romans 10:17

You also have to confess Jesus as your Lord and Savior with your mouth and believe in Him alone. Read below.

9 If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

-Romans 10:9

Friends, C.S. Lewis is a false Christian and his books are not from the Holy Spirit, but has devastating teachings that can make some people deviate from the truth of the Bible. Stay away from his books because you will get deceived if you are not grounded firmly in the Scriptures.

(Part 1) C.S. Lewis: What Did He Really Believe About The Bible?

“I have the deepest respect even for Pagan myths, still more for myths in Holy Scripture.” C.S. Lewis “The Problem of Pain” Page 42 from a pdf format

C.S. Lewis who quoted this, claimed to be a Christian. His writings and books have a lot of influence in the Evangelical world. Many Christians quote him and believe that he was one of the best intellectual Christians of the 20th century.

Keyword: Myth

A story or an event that is invented, not real.

C.S. Lewis believes that the Bible contains myths. The Bible has no myths but is historically accurate, true in doctrine, and all of the events it describes. It is literal when the context demands it, and it is symbolic when the text says it is. Even though the Bible uses symbolism, the symbolism has a literal meaning behind it. For example: [Revelation 17:3] “3 So he carried me away in the Spirit to a desert. I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and 10 horns.”

The woman, the seven heads, the scarlet beast, and the 10 horns are symbols which represent literal things, see below.

The woman represents a real city [Revelation 17:18]

The seven heads represent seven mountains where the city is situated and it also means seven kings [Revelation 17:9-10]

The scarlet beast represents an eighth king a.k.a, the antichrist [Revelation 17:11]

The 10 horns represent 10 kings who will rule with the antichrist by giving him their authority and power [Revelation 17:12-13]

Calling certain parts of the Scriptures [myths] is very problematic, especially when it is coming from a so-called Christian. If you are a Christian who reads his books, alarms should be ringing in your head. C.S. Lewis is very popular for a reason. In part 2, we will continue to look at Lewis’ other quotes that are even worse.

This is the end of Part 1.
