Narnia: Growing Up (Part 2)

“I did not say to myself, ‘Let us represent Jesus as He really is in our world by a Lion in Narnia’: I said, ‘Let us suppose that there were a land like Narnia and that the Son of God, as He became a Man in our world, became a Lion there, and then imagine what would have happened.’”[1]

Lewis-and-Aslan narniaWas C. S. Lewis aware of occult elements in Narnia? Yes. In his autobiography Surprised by Joy (1955), Lewis said that he was exposed to the occult as a teenager, long before his spurious conversion to Christianity in 1929.[2] His teacher Miss C., “floundering in the mazes of Theosophy, Rosicrucianism, Spiritualism, the whole Anglo-American occult tradition,” destroyed Lewis’s budding faith (56).[3] As a result, he struggled with a “passion for the Occult” the rest of his life, which he called a “spiritual lust” (57). The “Christian” Lewis could have repudiated pagan occultic myths. Instead, he believed that “Christianity fulfilled Paganism” (59)[4] and called it a “true myth.”[5] Lewis’s Inkling friends J. R. R. Tolkien (1892-1973) and Charles Williams (1886-1945) also introduced occultic myths in their work. Tolkien was a Roman Catholic, Williams a member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, an occultic secret society whose membership included Nazi officials and the British aristocracy.

In light of these facts, is Narnia a “Christian” supposal, as Lewis wrote to some fifth-graders (top quote)? Is a supposal even necessary? No. But Lewis the spurious convert had no desire to preach the plain truth of the gospel, which he clearly repudiated. The Greek verb myeo (G.3453) and noun mysterion (G.3466), akin to mythos, refer to instruction in mysteries hidden from the unenlightened. Although it appears to outsiders that Lewis hid Christian elements in his Narnia books, the reality is that he hid occultism, which means “hidden knowledge.” However, this action defies the gospel of Jesus Christ, which is “the revelation of the mystery” of salvation (Romans 16:25).[6] Unlike myth, it is truth “made known to all nations for the obedience of faith,” through the Scriptures (16:26). Paul speaks often of this mystery being revealed in Christ (Ephesians 3:4, 6:19; Colossians 1:26-27). Unlike Lewis, he preached a plain message.

If the Chronicles of Narnia were Christian, then why would unbelieving Hollywood embrace it? That they do demonstrates the true nature of Narnia: the occult. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe opened in theaters on December 9, 2005. Pastor David Meyer, a former witch, said that this date is “the 13th day before the witches’ quarter-sabat of Yule. The full cold moon is midway between the release date and the sabat of Yule. The waxing moon is also directly on the equinox on the release date of the movie. This is far too precisely occultic to be coincidental, and the producers of the movie no doubt consulted upper-level witches regarding the perfect day to have the ‘Chronicles of Narnia’ open.” Is the same true for the release dates of Prince Caspian (2008) and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010)? I’d like to know.

rupert-murdoch henry-kissingerDisney distributed the first two Narnia films, Fox 2000 (20th Century Fox) the third. Christians well-versed in the Illuminati’s New World Order (NWO) know that Walt Disney (1901-1966) was a 33rd degree Freemason; his successors Michael Eisner and Bob Iger are Zionists. No wonder occult images litter Disney productions! 20th Century Fox is owned by Rupert Murdoch (Freemason / Knight of Malta). The occult nature of these companies makes me question their cast and crew choices while producing Narnia. For example, British actor Ben Barnes (Caspian) is a cousin of the American politician Henry Kissinger (Freemason / Knight of Malta), an Ashkenazi Jew and the NWO’s CEO. British actor Skandar Keynes (Edmund Pevensie) is a direct descendant of the atheist Charles Darwin (1809-1882). I don’t know the Illuminati connections of other Narnia cast and crew members, but some of them use Masonic signs in public. HarperCollins issued a new edition of the Narnia series in 1994, five years after Murdoch’s News Corp bought it. What is the occult purpose of this sudden flurry of Narnia promotion? Why are Freemasons and Knights of Malta, the Pope’s personal militia, promoting these so-called Christian books and films?

How did Lewis become a successful “Christian” author in the first place? With the Illuminati in power, no one obtains worldly success by accident. So, just as Freemason William Randolph Hearst told his newspaper reporters to “puff” the ecumenical Freemason Billy Graham, someone must have “puffed” Lewis. I’d like to know who. Last year, Christianity Today reported that Lewis briefly worked for MI6 during World War II. He was recruited to lead Norway into the war on the Allied side. According to Henry Makow, Claude Dansey (1876-1947), the deputy director of MI6 during WWII, was a corrupt traitor who helped the Nazis. Did this man recruit Lewis? Did the Illuminati jumpstart his literary career?

“Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver. So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.” (Acts 19:19-20)

After learning the truth about Narnia, I deleted all traces of it from my Arts & Culture blog (except for one review) and my social media accounts. I also plan to delete pro-Narnia editorials from this blog. The Spirit through the Word is clear: “Come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty” (2 Corinthians 6:17-18). Narnia, in a word, is unclean. All those who love Jesus Christ and the Bible should shun it.
