The Witchcraft of The

Chronicles of Narnia
Centaurs, dryads, nymphs, fauns, and mythical creatures fill the world of
Narnia. C.S. Lewis, the author of the popular book series, was fascinated
with Greek mythology, paganism, and ancient England. His stories have
had wide acclaim by many around the world and the recent Disney
Narnia movies have brought in over $1.5 billion at the box office
worldwide (1, see Works Cited below).
This article will look at The Chronicles of Narnias powerful occult
presentation and will reveal truth about its author that most people do not
know. We will see that Narnia presents real witchcraft to kids as
something appealing.

C.S. Lewis and Magic


Narnias author, C.S. Lewis is a man with two faces. He was born on November 29, 1898 in
Belfast, Northern Ireland (2). In the mid-1920s, Lewis joined a group of intellectuals called the
Inklings of which J.R.R. Tolkien was a member. Lewis and Tolkien became good friends (2).
During this time, Tolkien got Lewis interested in Catholicism and Lewis began to call himself a
Christian.
As an alleged Christian, Lewis studied and embraced paganism. C.S. Lewis went on a trip to
Greece with his wife, Joy. C.S. Lewis wrote:

"I had some ado to prevent Joy and myself from relapsing into Paganism in Attica! At
Daphni it was hard not to pray to Apollo the Healer. But somehow one didnt feel it
would have been very wrong would have only been addressing Christ sub specie
Apollonius. We witnessed a beautiful Christian village ceremony in Rhodes and hardly
felt a discrepancy." (3 and 4 in Works Cited) (bold / underline added)
Apollo and Jesus Christ are not similar in any way.
Lewis was treating them as if they were identical or
similar. Apollo was the pagan sun-god of Greece.
He was said to ride a fiery chariot through the
heavens. Sun-worship has been a part of pagan
cultures for thousands of years and it is an
abomination to God.
Exodus 20:1-3
1 And God spake all these words, saying,
2 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of
Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.


Worship of anything (or anyone) other than God is idolatry and God hates it. God must be the
focus of a true Christian. Sports, hobbies, work, family, etc. should never be the first thing on a
true Christians mind when he / she wakes up or the last thing when he / she goes to bed. Jesus
Christ should be a Christians focus.

C.S. Lewis and the Occult

Sadly, many Christians do not understand the danger


of how a book series of a Christian author could be
bad. That is why I feel the need to write this article. I
am not trying to attack C.S. Lewis. This article is to
encourage Christians to seek God and to seek to know
what God shows them about C.S. Lewis and The
Chronicles of Narnia.
The Chronicles of Narnia begins in WW2 during the
bombing of London. Four Pevensie kids, Lucy,
Edmund, Peter, and Susan are sent to stay with
Professor Digory Kirke during the war. In this first book, Lucy steps through a magic wardrobe

and arrives in a mystical world called Narnia. She meets a faun (half man-half goat) called Mr.
Tumnus.
In this magical world, animals can talk, pagan deities called river gods, nymphs, and dryads live
in the rivers and in the trees. Mythical creatures including satyrs (similar to fauns), centaurs,
merpeople (mermaid), minotaurs, ogres, unicorns, gouls, a phoenix, half-breed (half man-half
driad), naiads, etc. populated Narnia (7). All these creatures come from paganism.
One of these mythical creatures, the phoenix (which can be found in an apple orchard in The
Magicians Nephew) is a mythical bird which Freemasonry and occultists use as a universal
symbol. Manly P. Hall, who was an occultist and a 33rd degree Freemason, wrote:
Among the ancients a fabulous bird called the Phoenix is described by early writers
The Phoenix, it is said, lives for 500 years, and at its death its body opens and the new
born Phoenix emerges. Because of this symbolism, the Phoenix is generally regarded as
representing immortality and resurrection The Phoenix is one sign of the secret orders
of the ancient world and of the initiate of those orders. (5) [pp. 176-77]
Manly P. Hall was speaking of Freemasonry (and other
mystery religions) in the quote above. C.S. Lewis was
probably not a mason, but he was fascinated with
aspects of magic and the occult and those things fill
the Narnia books. As one example, Lucy finds a magic
spell book (or a book of incantations, which are also
spells) on an island populated by invisible monopods
in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (9). She uses this
magic spell book to cast a spell, turning the invisible
monopods visible (9).

Spell-casting is practiced by witches today and magic spell books can be found in occult
bookstores. Bob Johnson, a practitioner in the occult, wrote:
The tools of magick are spells, talismans (charms and objects), potions, rituals, and
ceremonies. They are all used to achieve a desired result. For example, witchcraft has
spells for obtaining money.... Witchcraft spells can get you that raise... (8)
Spells are real and they are evil. God forbids using spells and all forms of witchcraft (or sorcery)!
Deuteronomy 18:9-12 (emphasis added)
9 When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not
learn to do after the abominations of those nations.

10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter
to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an
enchanter, or a witch.
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these
abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
The Chronicles of Narnia promotes sorcery as something that can be used for good or for
evil. Jadis, the White Witch, put a curse on Narnia causing the world of Narnia to be covered
by ice and snow for a long time (10). That is an example of evil magic. Lucys spell of
visibility was presented as good magic. Magic (sorcery) is still magic. It is an abomination to
God (Deut. 18:9-12).

David J. Meyer Exposes C.S. Lewis


The late Pastor David J. Meyer was a real witch (or sorcerer) before getting saved and becoming
a pastor. He wrote this about C.S. Lewiss Chronicles of Narnia:
As a former witch, astrologer, and occultist who has been saved by the grace of God,
I know that the works of C.S. Lewis are required reading by neophyte
witches, especially in the United States and England. This includes The Chronicles of
Narnia, because it teaches neophyte, or new witches, the basic mindset of the
craft. Isnt it strange, though, that many Christian churches and organizations have
used The Chronicles of Narnia as Sunday School curriculum? (Meyer) (bold / underline
added)
This former witch who became a Christian said, As a former witch I know that the works of
C.S. Lewis are required reading by neophyte witches That is very important to remember.
Meyer also stated that This includes The Chronicles of Narnia, because it teaches neophyte, or
new witches, the basic mindset of the craft.
As an example of the witchcraft found in The Chronicles of Narnia, Meyer quoted from Prince
Caspian (from pg. 152):
The crowd and dance round Aslan (for it had become a dance once more) grew so thick
and rapid that Lucy was confused. [...] One was a youth, dressed only in a fawn skin,
with vine leaves wreathed in his curly hair. His face [...] looked so extremely wild. [...]
He seemed to have a great many names Bromios, Bassareus, and the Ram were three of
them. There were a lot of girls with him, as wild as he. [...] And everybody was [...]
shouting out, EUAN, EUAN, EU-oi-oi-oi.

Those strange words EUAN, EUAN, EU-oi-oi-oi are an ancient witches chant used to
invoke the power and presence of the god of drunkenness and addiction, who is named
Bacchus. But wait, as the story goes on, it gets worse as the witchcraft increases and
becomes more obvious. [][Paragraph spacing added.]
[] Then the whole party moved off Aslan leading.
Bacchus and his Maenads leaping, [] Then three or four
Red Dwarfs came forward [] and set light to the pile, []
and [it] finally roared as a woodland bonfire on midsummer
night ought to do. And every-one sat down in a wide circle
around it. Then Bacchus and Silenus and the Maenads began
a dance, far wilder than the dance of the trees, not merely a
dance for fun and beauty (though it was that too), but a magic
dance of plenty, and where their hands touched, and where
their feet fell, the feast came into existence. Sides of roasted
meat that filled the grove with delicious smell, and wheaten
cakes and oaten cakes

Midsummer or the Summer Solstice, and it is described as
such in perfect detail. Certainly by now enough is known to denounce this work as
satanic and antichrist. (Meyer) [bold / underline added]

Please read this quote again and think about it. Is this pagan feast of midsummer something a
parent would want his or her kids to be part of? Is this something a Christian should be part of?
Is The Chronicles of Narnia something beneficial to kids? If you are a Christian, you really need
to seek God on this and repent from anything God shows you to repent from. God hates
witchcraft and paganism. We are to have nothing to do with the ways of this world.
Ephesians 5:11 says: And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather
reprove them.
2 Corinthians 6 gives us this instruction
2 Corinthians 6:14-17 (bold / underline added)
14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath
righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth
with an infidel?
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of
the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be
their God, and they shall be my people.
17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord,
and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

God loves us so much that He sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins and
shed His precious blood to pay for all of these sins. (See John 3:16; and 1 Corinthians 15:3-5;

has done this for you (Romans 10:9-10), and have made Him your Lord and Savior (again
Romans 10:9-10) you are saved.
Now seek God with all your heart. Seek to know Him and you will (Jeremiah 29:13).
