Narnia: Lion, Witch and Wardrobe
by C.S.Lewis

Just a brief little observation based on a recent TV broadcast of this story, as included in a mailing to the subscribers.

Tonight the Narnia "Lion, Witch and Wardrobe" were on TV. I am boiling angry (livid!) at the moment, to the point a few minutes ago...to tears. Bitterly muttering: JUST SWEEP IT ALL AWAY AND DESTROY IT!!!

To think that this is what "christians" were all gaga over back in the 70s. My peers in college, the ones who would label me as "judgmental" for sticking to what the Bible -SAYS-. Things like this movie provide the nails in the coffin against those, for me to have it verified that they were merely -pretenders- and not true Christians, at all!!!!

And to think.... these are the ones 'running' the church today, and teaching in the Bible colleges and seminaries..!!

This movie has all the demonology, mythology and witchcraft of those other things like Harry Potter, Secret Circle, and the various other witchcraft shows.

For you who know the story: Aslan (sp?) goes into the tent to make a 'deal' with the witch to save the life of the younger brother who strayed (straying carried the death penalty), and must give his life in exchange. But near the end at the great battle, it is (king) 'Peter' who fights the witch (satan), and Aslan comes along to merely 'roar' in her face. And as Aslan (who came back to life) is leading the 4 up to their thrones in the great hall (as Jesus "will confess his name before My Father and His Angels" Re3:5) (in the movie the "angels" are made up of hobbits, animals, the beavers, boars, centaurs, and various demonic mythical creatures) the first introduced to the great host is, "Long live KING PETER" Peter, the alleged "first pope" and "vicar" (in the place of) 'antichrist'...Rome usurping Jesus Christ.

And then, Aslan (the one representing Jesus) goes away, and it is said they will see him no more.

But Jesus prayed...

    "Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me MAY BE WITH ME WHERE I AM..." (Jn17:24)

    "Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together at the same time with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And THUS WE SHALL ALWAYS BE WITH THE LORD." (1Th4:17)

    "...having a desire to depart and BE WITH CHRIST, which is far better." (Php1:23)

Furthermore, when Peter was about to start fighting, having pulled out his sword, Jesus tells him to
    "put your sword in its sheath" (Jn18:11)
And it is -Jesus- who has victory over satan and death:
    "O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory? The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the Law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." (1Co15:55-57)

    "And I saw Heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.... And He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.... And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS." (Re19:11,13,16)

    "Who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His essence, and upholding all things by the Word of His power, when He had by Himself made purification for our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high... But to the Son He says: Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; a scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your Kingdom." (Heb1:3,8)

But in the great hall Aslan does not even take his place of royalty on his own throne. He is not praised as ruler. There is not even a throne placed on the stage for him. Compare that to:
    "Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing!" (Re5:11-12)

    "who has gone into Heaven and is at the right hand of God, angels and authorities and powers having been made subject to Him." (1Pt3:22)

Aslan, the one portraying Christ, does not receive his due praise...and the "sons of man" and "daughters of woman" (the 4 children) are raised to positions of authority. Like we noted recently in talking about Buddhism...it is like they are now elevated to god-hood.

According to C.S.Lewis, Jesus did not conquer sin and provide Salvation at all... Peter did; and by extension we all provide our own salvation by the magical charms given to us, and by our own goodness and perseverence.

But the Bible says...

    "not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit" (Tit3:5)
As the movie began I could see right away that I didn't really 'want' to watch it, but saw it through...to be 'informed'. I've never read the C.S.Lewis writings...but he was the 'biggest' thing back when I was in college. So-called "christians", who also considered themselves 'intellectual', spoke of "C.S.Lewis" more than they did of the Bible.

Jesus Christ and Salvation have NOTHING to do with magic and mythology. To portray a story in such a fashion is utter blasphemy! Jesus did not come to make us little gods, and then leave. And if people who embrace such stuff do not renounce it before it's too late, may they get everything from God's Wrath that they deserve! This stuff is every bit as evil as Luciferianism, satan-worship, and everything that goes with it. Such pretend-christians will receive God's full everlasting wrath...

...except they repent in time!

    "And he said to me, Do not seal the Words of the Prophecy of this Book, FOR THE TIME IS AT HAND. He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still. And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to what his work shall be." (Re22:10-12)
Come, Lord Jesus!
