Call To Discernment

Calling Christians to Biblical Christianity. Christians must have discernment in all areas of life in this end time of deception, realizing also that American leadership of both political parties are leading us into the New World Order of the coming antichrist. Do not be conformed to this world. Rom. 12:2. Expose the deeds of darkness. Eph. 5:11. "He that is not zealous against error, is not likely to be zealous for truth." J.C. Ryle ----- [NEW AND IMPROVED BLOG UNDER CONSTRUCTION]

2:31 PM - The American Evangelical Love Affair with C.S. Lewis

I like listening to Ravi Zacharias. He is such an intellectual apologist. But his most glaring fault is his "idolization" of C. S. Lewis. Just today after turning on his Sunday program it was just a few minutes before he brought up Lewis. It seems he cannot deliver a message without mentioning him and always in a glowing way. The man is without fault to Zacharias. I have written his ministry more than once but his staff is the same way. I turned the program off.  I'm just fed up with compromising Christian "leaders" that refuse to confront the truth and admit they could be wrong. But maybe they don't want to admit being wrong about Lewis for no man could be more symbolic of the current apostate church than Lewis with his unbiblical version of Christianity which he held to his death.

Why He's Important But Still Not Jesus


(excerpts)

With the possible exception of Jesus and the apostle Paul, no man's name appears more in popular evangelical nonfiction. No man's words are more quoted in popular evangelical apologetics.

It is no wonder that Lewis is the Alpha and Omega of popular evangelical apologetics. But however much Lewis has to offer contemporary theological discussions, evangelicals have developed an unhealthy addiction to Lewis's arguments. As is the tendency with all powerful ideas, Lewis's arguments have become a rhetorical talisman, an epistemological panacea.

It is high time for evangelicals to step out of Lewis's wardrobe. They must acknowledge that no man has ever lived that can feed them ever. Or, if such a man has lived, his name is not C.S. Lewis. Evangelicals should know that better than anyone.
