C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien: Heretical Fruits

C.S. Lewis, who the church at large respects as a Christian apologist and author, bore the fruits of an infiltrator by promoting the doctrine of "white magic" (good magic) via fictional novels directed toward children. Because all magic that is not merely illusory tricks originates with Satan, Lewis' "white magic" lie is definitely worthy of scrutiny.

All real magic originates with Satan and his devils. Any writer who represents himself as a Christian and yet conditions his readers to embrace the concept of helpful, "white magic" is knowingly furthering Satan's agenda. In the case of the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and The Lord of the Rings, the authors' "good magic" paradigm shift has primed many people to believe that supernatural occurrences should be regarded as good--even if the source of the power is not from God--if the result is good.

The truth: The source of all supernatural activity is either from God and his angels or Satan and his devils. In any literary work -- including fiction -- if God and his angels are not identified as the source of supernatural activity, then Satan and his devils are the source of the power, whether the author discloses this fact or not.

C.S. Lewis did not identify the source of the supernatural power in his Chronicles of Narnia. He presented magic as something rather ordinary -- something to be used for good or evil. (Interestingly, witches have a similar view.) His characters were not wary of magic. . . and neither are the majority of evangelical Christians today. (Are we supposed to believe this is mere coincidence?)

Should there be any doubt about Lewis’ theosophism or his activity in occultism? Consider the company he kept. He was a star member of The Inklings. The Inklings was a literary group that met in taverns to trade ideas and discuss how their work should impact society. Many had theosophical affiliations, not the least of which was Aleister Crowley, member of the Order of the Golden Dawn, who called himself “The Great Beast” and “the wickedest man alive.”

Tolkien and the Lord of the Rings  Quotes from this article:

Thus the author of The Lord of the Rings denied the very thing that some Christians today are claiming, that these fantasies are an allegory of Christ’s victory over the devil."

Dungeons and Dragons, which appeared in the early 1970s, was based on Tolkien’s fantasy novels.
