'Narnia' fuels fascination of C.S. Lewis

LOS ANGELES - When 8-year-old Douglas Gresham met C.S. Lewis, the man who would become his stepfather, he was disappointed.

The American boy had expected the British author of "The Chronicles of Narnia" fantasy books "to be wearing silver armor and carrying a sword with a jeweled pommel."

Instead, Lewis "was a stooped, balding, professorial-looking gentleman in shabby clothes, with long, nicotine-stained fingers," said Gresham, now 59, speaking on the phone from his home in Ireland.

More than 40 years after Lewis' death, people still have their own ideas about him. Depending on whom you ask, Lewis was a scholar, fantasy writer, Christian saint -- or all that and more. ...

Discernment, discernment. Even Scripture can be abused. Lewis's fiction may be entertaining so long as we don't pretend it's a theology text. The problem today is, that's how evangelicals are trying to use his work.

If you spend much time reading the writings of our great Christian heritage you will realize that even the godliest writers had problems, some more than others. If we reject purgatory, then must we reject all of Augustine? If we reject consubstantiation, then must we reject all of Luther? If we (even though I don't) reject the union of Church and State, then out with almost every Christian teacher in all of history including Calvin and most of the Puritans? I won't even get into the horrendous errors of Arminius, Agricola, Scofield and the rest of the Dispensationalists, which either are heresy or border on it. I could go on. Where do we draw the line, who is acceptable? The Scriptures are the standard, of course. However, remember all of these men also had the Scriptures and presumably the Spirit. Historically, the collective voice of Creeds and Confessions in harmony with Scripture, with the WCF as the epitome, has been the primary way the Lord has helped us out of this dilemma, and I see a great need for the unifying effect of confessions in the Church today. I believe a strong confessionalism would have helped Lewis to stay out of some of his worst teaching. Does anyone have evidence that he took seriously the 39 articles or other standards?...

I see in his writings a strong adherence to the early creeds at least, which seems to have kept him in check on the Trinity, deity of Christ, virgin birth, etc. National Confessionalism would be a great blessing to us all. And to the super- spiritual who spout that Christians shouldn’t read anything but the Scripture and shouldn’t have Creeds and Confessions, I will take their advice and not listen to or read what they have to say, because they too are not Scripture.
