Why 'Mere Christianity' Should Have Bombed

Mere Christianity works because Lewis was a master at two rhetorical arts, which he combined fluently: argument and depiction. Indeed, his friend Austin Farrer emphasized the latter as his chief talent, and Lewis himself spoke, not only of creating Narnia in terms of "seeing pictures in his head," but of his entire writing career in this way. In the last months of his life, he explained to a friend why he was no longer generating new work. He was ill, but he was not old: only in his mid-60s. The situation was simple, he said: "The pictures have stopped." ...

Here in the U.S. I am saddened that is not just clergy like the Anglicans in the UK who like their ears tickled by C.S. Lewis or worse authors of 'The Shack', 'Love Wins', and things that really make me wonder such as:
A Hobbit Devotional: Bilbo Baggins and the Bible and Finding God in the Hobbit
IMHO it is like these mystical philosophers have thrown the very real faith people could have in God, coming from His Word the Bible right into the _____________ you can fill in the word(s) as I am sickened to consider what such writers and their adoring fans are doing with Christ.
Michael dear bro
It truly is astonishing what is happening today, and gives us even more impetus to stay as close to God as we can. We must continue to seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and make sure that Jesus is our first love, putting the things of God always first, living in heavenly places in Christ, being heavenly-minded, and not counting this world as having any value as it is gearing up for total destruction along with its lusts. Denying self, taking up a cross daily, and following him who is worthy of a wholehearted committment.

Most noticeably the university types, the self-confessed intellectuals, the brainy, brash patronisers, the clergy of the anglican communion, the upper classes etc. The sort who can look at an ornately framed red line of paint (called an abstract work of art) and give a lecture on it for over an hour, and then some.

Col 2:8-15 Begins:

See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ.

C.S. Lewis may well have tickled the ears of fallen men with his philosophical notions of God

Whereas God Himself has spoken to us the TRUTH in Scripture.

IMHO the late Francis Schaeffer, however imperfect a man he was, does a far better apolgetic emphasizing:
He is There
He is NOT Silent - He Himself has spoken to us in Scripture

It is enormously grieveous to me to see people run to a popular religious celebrity to get their "faith" when if a man has not personally heard what God Himself has said their "faith" can be nothing more than a fantasy of moralistic therapeutic deism

BUT to those who have heard God and taken Him at His Word their "faith" is literally a gift of His grace, His word by the convicting work of the Holy Spirit forming in us "The Faith" God Himself authors, honors and rewards, "The Faith" that does the will of God, and rests fully upon Jesus Christ, the Cross and the Blood He willing shed for us that He would be our salvation.
