These are collected by Barnabas Piper. I have loved the Narnia series since I first read them, and that was as a young adult. C. S. Lewis has some really cogent thoughts. I especially like the point that one of the childish things one leaves off as one becomes a man is “a fear of childishness”!
I can’t help calling attention to this page from the Balaam’s Ass web site for the rampant paranoia, lack of humor, and failure to comprehend represented throughout.
The following opening says it all:
John F. Kennedy, C.S. Lewis, and Aldous Huxley all died on the same day.
They all went to the same place.
Kennedy went to hell because he trusted in the Roman Whore.
Huxley went to hell because he trusted in himself alone and his hybrid Eastern mystic notions.
And, Lewis went to hell because he invented a new god, and he ended his life a Taoist.
We will prove it here.
Oh well, not quite all:
Though a highly acclaimed and widely published “Christian” author, when judged by his own words with the King James Bible it becomes clear that he was indeed a fool in the most extreme sense of the word, yet a very subtle one that was and is extremely useful to his father the devil.
As soon as someone says they are going to judge something by the King James Bible, I know they are not to be taken seriously. The level of vitriol in this material on Lewis is interesting, though amongst KJV-Only advocates, it’s not too surprising. Once one sets out to pursue ignorance, where does one stop?
