Narnia: Lion, Witch and Wardrobe
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...
"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)
"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)
"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)
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...
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!
