Piper's The Bethlehem Institute Promoting Roman Catholic CS Lewis and Federal Vision Heretic Doug Wilson

The Bethlehem Institute:


New Course: Live Like An Narnian (starts Feb. 9)

The Chronicles of Narnia are some of the most beloved children's books of all time. But are they really just for children? Or is there more in Narnia than meets the eye? This twelve-week course will examine the Chronicles book by book as powerful stories designed to shape the hearts and minds of their readers. In the process, we will explore C.S. Lewis' motivation for writing The Chronicles, as well as probe the connections between The Chronicles and Lewis' other writings. From characters to plot, from symbolism to structure, we will seek to 'breathe the air' of Narnia in hopes of both contemplating and enjoying the Christ-saturated world conceived by Lewis. Our goal will be to heed the words of Aslan:"This was the very reason you were brought into Narnia, that by knowing me here for a little, you might know me better there."Live Like a Narnian: Christian Discipleship in C.S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia isbeing offered. . .

What I Learned in Narnia by Douglas Wilson


End quote.

CS Lewis was not a Christian, but rather a Roman Catholic Anglican. Links here and here.

Doug Wilson, a past teacher at Desiring "God" Conference, is a heretic. He teaches the Federal Vision heresy.

And yet here we go again, Piper's church is promoting two heretics.

Just a clarification: the Anglican Church, of which C.S. Lewis was a member, is not Roman Catholic. Rather, King Henry VIII founded the Anglican Church in the 16th century when he severed communion with the bishop of Rome.

Jonathan, Yes I'm aware that Lewis was Anglican, but he was more Romanesque. I call him a Roman Catholic Anglican for that reason (although the two are sister religions anyway). Here is a series of articles that bear that out:
