We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum. A.W. Tozer
Therefore let God-inspired Scripture decide between us; and on whichever side be found doctrines in harmony with the word of God, in favor of that side will be cast the vote of truth. --Basil of Caesarea
Once you learn to discern, there's no going back. You will begin to spot the lie everywhere it appears.

I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service. 1 Timothy 1:12

Strong Lies

By mixing a little truth with it, they made their lie far stronger.

I was just wondering what your thoughts are about C.S. Lewis??? Just a little confused. Are you endorsing him his books or calling him out???

Ms B,

C.S. Lewis was a fairly good apologist, and has good teachings on overall Christian living and worldview; for that reason many of his writings are worthwhile. However, I would not recommend Lewis to immature believers or those lacking discernment because Lewis' theology was very Catholic, he taught evolution, and promoted the idea of mental diseases and other psychobabble. In some statements he made he seemed to be preaching universalism.

Exactly! That's what further research led me to be more careful when promoting CS Lewis! Thanks!
