I am really tired of C.S. Lewis being promoted by professing Christians!
link to main article
then this quote below is in that site under C. S. Lewis the Heretic:
We’re saved by works according to Lewis
“There are three things that spread the Christ-life to us: baptism, belief, and that mysterious action which different Christians call by different names–Holy Communion, the Mass, the Lord’s Supper” (pp.62,63). Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Added to this he says that in the next life “there will be every occasion for being the sort of people that we can become only as the result of doing such acts here” (p.63) [Emphasis added.] So, he literally believed that this was the “only” way to be saved. Lewis is also wiping out any difference between the Lord’s supper of true Christians and the Roman Mass. Jesus told us clearly that it is to be in remembrance of me.“ 1Corinthians 11:24. He lumps all beliefs about it into one and claims it is part of salvation as well as calling Roman Catholics “Christians”!
end quote from that site.
Lewis was promoted at Christian Family Camp and I was very uncomfortable with that.
In fact I am so tired of the Christian version of ‘family’ camp in general.
At the last ‘Christian’ Family Camp I attended in 2006
they showed one of those movies based on C.S. Lewis’ books.
During camp I spent some time watching and listening to the Sunday school lesson that was
being done to the kids in grade school age.
( I say ‘done to them’ for a reason).
It was based on psychology.
I thought the group teaching activity to be very inappropriate as it
was requiring the public exposure of self critical private thoughts to the group.
(Read a bit about communism and their group activities and their public self critical public confession
time and you will know what I am talking about!)
To help the apostasy along, they used songs about God and the devil that were
very, very unbiblical.
I don’t want to segway just now on that. That is for another post.
I would like to know this:
Why do parents subject their kids to strangers?
And to camps that promote heretics?
Just because it’s ‘Family’ camp,
we can trust the volunteers that were picked by the camp staff?
Why do parents sit apart from their kids at ‘FAMILY’ camp and never check to see what
the kids are being brainwashed by?
I obtained a copy of the material from one of the stranger/teachers of the kids.
It confirmed what I suspected. It was garbage brainwashing material from Willow Creek.
Now, we had gone every year, to family camp, for about 4 years. I also went to the yearly
During our last year at the church associated with this camp I was getting uncomfortable
with the teachings and activities from this camp.
Now, previous to this particular family camp experience we had left the church associated with
So I was on high alert mentally and spiritually to be careful of what was being taught.
You would be interested to know that there is a family that we always went to camp with.
They are still friends of ours. They had gone to this church and church camp for many years
before my family and I started at that church.
When we first started going to the church they invited us to the next available family camp.
Family camp is on Memorial weekend and Labor Day weekends.
The ladies retreat is every fall. I enjoyed them all, up to the year before we left the church.
After the lesson I told our friends my concerns about the Sunday school lesson the kids were getting.
They didn’t seem to understand! I told them then I don’t want my daughter going to this again.
They went again to family camp and invited my daughter. I said no way. I reminded my friend of
the lesson they had and can’t see how it’s ok for them to go. They went. Because it’s tradition.
Now, they had already started going to a new church after both of our families and others had fled our other church.
I was not comfortable with the new one they were going to when I had visited.
Because I saw signs of the same crap coming in. My friends are not so discerning.
Among the good that is at that church, is the poison.
They are busy with their lives and now are happy to be in a traditional church that isn’t as far down the broad road as the other church we all fled from.
They don’t look closely enough to see the problems because they want to be in a church so bad that they are closing their eyes to what is obviously carefully calculated deception.
I did go to a ladies banquet with my girlfriend at their new church last year. I was appalled.
The speaker very slyly and very subtly introduced breath prayers! My friend didn’t hear it.
I suppose she looked away and looked at her daughter, who had come with her and had other
thoughts on her mind, for a moment.
I repeated to my friend, after it was over, what the lady said. She said she didn’t hear it.
I told her husband. He talked to her. Then he got back to me and said that she didn’t hear that being said.
Implying it probably didn’t get said. And of course he defended the elders and all by saying they wouldn’t allow anything bad to come in.
I know what I heard.
I told them both I no longer want to be invited to anything the ladies are doing.
Just leave me out.
Christians are sometimes doing the right thing by leaving churches that are no longer safe to go
to because of blatant in your face apostasy.
Like this family did when we all ran from the former church.
BUT, then we long for the garlic!
We want to have life in Egypt again.
We think we can have a bit of poultry when the Lord wants us to be on a Manna diet!
The professing visible traditional church in America and around the world, is on life support.
Which is ARTIFICIAL life!
Don’t we want the TRUE life that comes only from Jesus?
The false visible church is on life support,
we let our kids think that’s what the church is,
and we cry over it
and plot out ways to force it to breathe and look alive!
The family members don’t want to do the hard thing.
(repent, and obey God and be separate from the unclean thing)
They are willing to compromise in order to ‘have’ church.
You know why?
Church is their idol.
Tradition is an idol.
Habits of attending entertaining family camps are an idol.
Let the dead bury the dead church.
We are called to be separate from the world and all of it’s FALSE ways.
And today that means to be separate from the visible church
it is on the broad road to hell!
It’s that clear.
A visible church is on the broad road or the narrow road.
One or the other.
It’s leading you into what the Word teaches,
or what the world teaches.
The signs are easy to spot
if you LOVE truth and
HATE every false way.
