"God forbid we ever get Palin on the ticket for 2012, nor Gingrich!
"They are both compromisers! This they proved when they backed that turncoat in the GOP Primary, in NY's 28th district, I think, who ended up withdrawing and backing a democrat!
"And Palin is so very religious!! Indeed! As she just stated in an interview: 'When I am looking for divine inspiration, I read C.S. Lewis!' I almost fell off my seat!!"
an Internet friend came in defense of C.S. Lewis:
"I agree, Palin and Newt are NOT the conservatives they say they are! They are RINOS! We true conservatives neither want or need their rino arses to try and represent us. I'll take DeMint, Jindal, Rubio and Bachmann over them any and every day! Booyah!
Well, this the deception that C.S. Lewis has perpetuated!
Billy Graham Denies Jesus Is The ONLY WAY To The Father
Billy Graham on the "Hour of Power" show saying that people can get to Heaven another way besides through hearing the Gospel of Jesus Christ and then repenting and believing the Gospel. He basically says that "good" and "sincere" people who know nothing about Christ are on their way to Heaven.
I know that the audio and video are a little bit off, but this really did happen. For those of you who don't believe me, check out some of these sites as well:
Transcript from this show:
And here is the content of the transcript:
Dr. Schuller: "Tell me, what is the future of Christianity?"
Dr. Graham: "Well, Christianity and being a true believer, you know, I think there's the body of Christ which comes from all the Christian groups around the world, or outside the Christian groups. I think that everybody that loves Christ or knows Christ, whether they're conscious of it or not, they're members of the body of Christ. And I don't think that we're going to see a great sweeping revival that will turn the whole world to Christ at any time. What God is doing today is calling people out of the world for His name. Whether they come from the Muslim world, or the Buddhist world, or the Christian world, or the non-believing world, they are members of the body of Christ because they've been called by God. They may not even know the name of Jesus, but they know in their hearts they need something that they don't have and they turn to the only light they have and I think they're saved and they're going to be with us in heaven."
Dr. Schuller: "What I hear you saying is that it's possible for Jesus Christ to come into a human heart and soul and life even if they've been born in darkness and have never had exposure to the Bible. Is that a correct interpretation of what you're saying?"
Dr. Graham: "Yes it is because I believe that. I've met people in various parts of the world in tribal situations that they have never seen a Bible or heard about a Bible, have never heard of Jesus but they've believed in their hearts that there is a God and they tried to live a life that was quite apart from the surrounding community in which they lived."
Dr. Schuller: "This is fantastic. I'm so thrilled to hear you say that. There's a wideness in God's mercy. [THERE IS NO SUCH!! GOD'S WORD IS FULL OF CONDITIONALS!! THE 'GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT' OF REVELATION 20 TO BE THE END RESULT OF NOT ABIDING BY HIS CONDITIONS!!]
Dr. Graham: There is. There definitely is."
The conversation above occurred between Billy Graham and Robert Schuller, who is the pastor of the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, California and founder of the Hour Of Power television program. The interview was broadcast on May 31, 1997 on the Hour of Power television program, titled "Say 'Yes' To Possibility Thinking," program #1426.

The part of this article that I am talking about starts at the second paragraph. The article/interview is titled, "Pilgrim's Progress".
Think about it friends, if what Billy said was true...that one can get to Heaven another way besides through Christ, then there was no reason for Christ to shed His precious blood. But, the reason He did was because He knew there would be no other way. Read John 14:6, Acts 20:28, Romans 3:21-26 & 5:9, Ephesians 1:7 & 2:13, Colossians 1:20, Hebrews 9:12 & 9:22, etc.

I just want to end by saying this: I AM NOT questioning Billy's salvation (although it may be in question) or trying to malign his character in any way. I am just presenting the truth, the facts so people can know for themselves. This way people can call Billy to repentance and pray for him. God Bless...
C.S. Lewis EXPOSED!
J. K. Rowling (author of the demonic Harry Potter series) has said that C. S. Lewis is one of her two favorite authors (the other being Jane Austen). It should come as NO surprise to Christ-honoring Christians that C.S. Lewis was a heretic.
"Clive Staples Lewis was anything but a classic evangelical, socially or theologically. He smoked cigarettes and a pipe, and he regularly visited pubs to drink beer with friends. Though he shared basic Christian beliefs with evangelicals, he didn't subscribe to biblical inerrancy or penal substitution. He believed in purgatory and baptismal regeneration. How did someone with such a checkered pedigree come to be a theological Elvis Presley, adored by evangelicals?" -Christianity Today, C.S. Lewis Superstar, by Bob Smietana (December 2005, Vol. 49, No. 12, Page 28).

Friday Church News Notes, March 25, 2005 (Fundamental Baptist Information Service, www.wayoflife.org) - Seeking to cash in on the current popularity of religious-themed movies, the Walt Disney Corporation is creating a series of films adapted from C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia. The first, due for release in December, is The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Lewis believed in prayers for the dead and purgatory and confessed his sins to a priest. He denied the total depravity of man and the substitutionary atonement of Christ. He believed in theistic evolution and rejected the Bible as the infallible Word of God. He taught that hell is a state of mind (emphasis added). The Narnia fables are filled with heresy, promoting the concept of white or good witches and even teaching universalism. In the chapter “Further up and Further in” from “The Last Battle,” an individual is accepted by Aslan the lion (supposedly a mythical Christ figure) even though he served Aslan’s arch-enemy “Tash” all his life. When this individual expresses amazement at being accepted, Aslan says: “Therefore if any man swear by Tash and keep his oath for the oath’s sake, it is by me that he has truly sworn, though he know it not, and it is I who reward him.” This is a lie of the devil and could be responsible for sending souls to eternal hell. There is no salvation apart from repentance and faith in Christ.
The following is a quote from "The Last Battle," from the chapter "Further up and Further in." Note the following very carefully:
"Then I fell at his feet and thought, Surely this is the hour of death, for the Lion (who is worthy of all honour) will know that I have served Tash all my days and not him. Nevertheless, it is better to see the Lion and die than to be Tisroc of the world and live and not to have seen him. But the Glorious One bent down his golden head and touched my forehead with his tongue and said, Son, thou art welcome. But I said, Alas, Lord, I am no son of thine but the servant of Tash. He answered, Child, all the service thou hast done to Tash, I account as service done to me. Then by reasons of my great desire for wisdom and understanding, I overcame my fear and questioned the Glorious One and said, Lord, is it then true, as the Ape said, that thou and Tash are one? The Lion growled so that the earth shook (but his wrath was not against me) and said, It is false. Not because he and I are one, but because we are opposites, I take to me the services which thou hast done to him. For I and he are of such different kinds that no service which is vile can be done to me, and none which is not vile can be done to him. Therefore if any man swear by Tash and keep his oath for the oath's sake, it is by me that he has truly sworn, though he know it not, and it is I who reward him. And if any man do a cruelty in my name, then, though he says the name Aslan, it is Tash whom he serves and by Tash his deed is accepted. Dost thou understand, Child? I said, Lord, thou knowest how much I understand. But I said also (for the truth constrained me), Yet I have been seeking Tash all my days. Beloved, said the Glorious One, unless thy desire had been for me thou shouldst not have sought so long and so truly. For all find what they truly seek."
TWO DAMNABLE HERESIES ARE TAUGHT HERE
Lewis is teaching damnable false doctrine here, and it is even more wicked, in that it is intended for the indoctrination of children.
First, according to Lewis, those who sincerely serve the devil (Tash) are actually serving God (Aslan) and will eventually be accepted by God. That is the heresy of universalism, and many hold to this false doctrine, believing that God will somehow receive unbelievers and followers of false religions into Heaven even though they do not know Jesus Christ in this life.
When I interviewed the head of the New Testament department at Serampore University (founded by William Carey in India) years ago, he told me the same thing. I asked him whether the Hindus will be accepted by God if they are sincere in their religion, and he replied, "Certainly." [SO DOES THE HERETIC BILLY GRAHAM BELIEVE THIS! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=axxlXy6bLH0 http://www.ondoctrine.com/10grahab.htm]
Well, the Bible says certainly not! Ephesians chapter two tells us the condition of every person outside of regenerating faith in Jesus Christ. He is dead in trespasses and sins (v. 1), controlled by and living according to the working of the devil (v. 2), a child of disobedience (v. 2), dominated by the flesh (v. 3), by nature the child of wrath (v. 3), without Christ (v. 12), an alien and stranger from the covenant of God (v. 12), without hope (v. 12), WITHOUT GOD IN THE WORLD (v. 12), far off from God (v. 13).
In fact, the Lord Jesus Christ had already settled this matter long before the penning of Ephesians. In His conversation with Nicodemus, the Lord Jesus said categorically, "Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" (John 3:3). Nicodemus was a very sincere and religious Jew, and if any category of person could have gone to heaven without being born again, it would have been people like him. Jesus Christ said that it will not happen.
Furthermore, Lewis is teaching that salvation can be achieved by works and religious seeking, and that is a false gospel that is cursed of God in the book of Galatians.
"I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed" (Gal. 1:6-8).
There is only one true gospel, and that is salvation through repentance and faith in the blood of Jesus Christ; but there are many false gospels, and all of them claim that a man can be saved in some sense by good works.
Beware of the dangerous false teacher C.S. Lewis; and beware also of his friend, the Roman Catholic J.R. Tolkien.
