Is a Mocker
Proverbs 23:31 Look not thou upon
the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it
moveth itself aright. 32 At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like
an adder. 33 Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter
C.S. Lewis certainly had some strange women
in his stories - both "good" and bad. He also uttered extremely perverse
things in his books. The poison of "that old serpent,
which is the Devil, and Satan," (Rev. 20:2) is clearly visible in his life.
It is hardly surprising then that he was a drunkard.
appetite for beer, rum and wine is visible in the fact that the characters consume
them regularly in his Chronicles. This is mostly by the good
characters. Not only does he put it in the stories, but it is associated
cases with revelry and partying. (Photo: Memorial plaque for Lewis at "The
Eagle and Child" pub.)
This list will not be complete, but serve to
give you an idea of how drinking is being represented for children. In parentheses
(with purple text) are the lessons Lewis is teaching
and my comments.
The Lion, the Witch and the piano coversdrobe
p.13 "...then the streams would run with wine instead of water
and the whole forest would give itself up to jollification for weeks on end."
(Contradicts the Promised Land of the Bible which
flows with milk and honey. Obviously he has a different hope.)
31 A strange drink is mentioned that is not named. The "White Witch"
produces it by magic for Edmund. It is described as "...very sweet and foamy and
creamy, and it piano coversmed him right down to his toes." (Alcoholic
drinks are often used to piano coversm people, but is this one or not?)
"Meanwhile the girls were helping Mrs. Beaver...put plates in the over to
heat and draw a huge jug of beer for Mr. Beaver."
was a jug of milk for the children, Mr. Beaver stuck to beer." (From
these two quotes we learn that beer is for grown-ups, but they may drink it in
On p. 105, "Father Christmas" gives Lucy
a bottle of cordial. Cordial is another name for a liqueur, which is "made
by flavoring brandy, gin or other spirits with...flowers, fruits and leaves."
(The World Book Encyclopedia, 1986) They are at least 2 1/2 % sugar
and range from 30 to 120 proof. Also, they are medicinal stimulants that
invigorate the heart. (He is teaching that cordial is "all
right" for kids. This one also happens to be magical and related to sun worship
as we will see later.)
p. 179 "And that night there was
a great feast in Cair Paravel, and revelry, and dancing and gold flashed and wine
flowed." (This took place when Aslan crowned the four
children, so was obviously "blessed" by him. Remember he is supposed to
symbolize Christ according to the "party line.")
p.204 "...the Telmarine soldiers were...put under
lock and key, and given beef and beer." (Not bread
and water. In other words they were being treated "pretty well.")
"Then great wooden cups and bowls and mazers, wreathed
with ivy, came the wines..." (This occurs at a "romp" in
which Aslan was present, so it is "all right" to drink wine in excess and in a
wild party as long as it is "sanctified by the presence of the 'Lord.' " We
will learn more later on this particular event and the wickedness Lewis is
The Silver Chair
"...Puddleglum had a good many sips out of a square black bottle.
He offered the children some of it, but they thought it very nasty." [Emphasis
added] (So, liquor can be offered to children, but they
will not like. But, what if they do? This leaves open ugly possibilities.)
On pages 92-96, Puddleglum, the "adult" leader of the search
party drinks liquor at the giants' castle till he is stupid drunk. This is related
in great detail. A number of points are made: the giant offers it to cheer
him up, the smell and taste are noted, and he "puts it away like a man." He then
proceeds to talk gibberish, and the thing is cast as rather comical.
The lessons here are self-explaining.
p. 205 The Centaurs are said
the have beer as part of their breakfast. (So, beer
is something to drink in the morning. Even in the present, decadent age drinking
beer for breakfast is viewed as being over-done. Shows where Lewis' heart was.
Isaiah 5:11 Woe unto them that rise up early
in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until
night, till wine inflame them!)
and His Boy
p. 37 "And I became merry with her and gave
her wine to drink." (Though this was a girl with a
girl the common message of the world is here: When you become merry with a female,
wine goes with it.)
p. 71 "There was also a little flagon
of the sort of wine that is called 'white'..." (White
wine is good.)
p. 75 "Then I took them to a wine shop and
got them some and they all sat down and drank till they fell asleep." (Wine
will put you to sleep if you drink enough, so drink a lot if you want to go to
p. 213 "And the wine flowed and tales were told
and jokes cracked." (Wine flowing is part of having
"a good time" and telling jokes and stories.)
of the Dawntreader
p. 10 "...said Caspian to one of the
sailors, 'Bring spiced wine for their majesties.' " (It
is to serve special people.)
p. 20 On Caspian's boat we
find "...casks of water, beer and bottles of wine." (It
is a necessary staple and to be drunk 2 to 1 over water.)
"Command a cask of wine to be opened that your men may drink our health." (Use
wine to "drink people's health.")
p.139 "But the magician
himself drank only wine and ate only bread." (This
diet is special for magicians.)
p.147 "And they had races,
and bottles of wine were lowered down to them from the ship as prizes." (Wine
is a prize.)
p.166 "And the smell of the fruit and the wine
blew topiano coversds them like a promise of all happiness." (Wine
p.100 "And when some rum had been served
out, they even raised a cheer." (Rum cheers.)
The Last Battle
p.14 "A bowl of wine for
the noble centaur. The centaur raised the bowl and said, 'I drink first
to Aslan and truth..." (If taken in line with the
so-called "allegory of Christianity," this means it is all right to drink to God
and truth! Repulsive!)
p.147 "Aslan raised his head
and shook his main. Instantly a glorious feast appeared on the dpiano coversfs' knees...and
each dpiano coversf had a goblet of good wine in his right hand." (So,
here we have "God" serving out wine and no distinction made as to whether it is
alcoholic or not.)
FROM A READER-- Sept. 16, 2000
I was browsing
thru your site after my previous e-mail and came across this in your section on
C.S. Lewis: One of Lewis' favorite pubs, "The Eagle and Child," familiarly known
as "The Bird and Baby." This inn-sign is actually a representation of the pagan
god Zeus/Jupiter in the form of an eagle carrying off a boy called Ganymede to
Olympus to serve as a sexual plaything. I don't know whether that was why Lewis
was attracted to it, but it can hardly be coincidental that such a foul and disgusting
image should be associated with a pub frequented by such a person as Lewis.
Bless you, Hugh Anka
Lewis portrays smoking as a sort of "good old boy"
thing done by the manly sort of characters such as dpiano coversfs, the "marsh-wiggles,"
etc. Now it is generally accepted among Christians that smoking is unacceptable
for several reasons. 1) It is known to kill and destroy the body. 1Corinthians
6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which
is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 20 For ye are bought
with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are
God's. 2) For that reason it cannot be done "heartily,
as to the Lord..." Colossians 3:23,
nor "to the glory of God." 1
Corinthians 10:31. 3) It is terrible stepiano coversdship because of the cost.
Proverbs 3:9 Honour the LORD with thy substance...
Philippians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your
need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Lewis is
propagandizing to children. The tobacco industry owed him a cut of the
profit. (Wonder if anyone ever thought to sue his estate for damages of being
influenced to smoke by his books? :-)
In parentheses (with
purple text) is the lesson Lewis is teaching.
p. 34 "...the Dpiano coversf produced a pipe about the size of his
own arm, filled it, blew a great cloud of fragrant smoke and said, 'Now.' " (Pipe
smoke is fragrant, that is to say, nice and appealing.)
p. 60 "He...lit his pipe. Marshwiggles smoke
a very strange, heavy sort of tobacco (some people say they mix it with mud) and
the children noticed the smoke from Puddleglum's pipe hardly rose in the air at
all. It trickled out of the bowl and downpiano coversds and drifted along the ground
like a mist. It was very black and set Scrubb coughing." (Now
this is a strange description. I am suspicious that it could be a description
of some kind of drug or other. If someone knows what this "tobacco" might
really be, please send email. Also,
we see that smoking makes people cough, which is accurate enough. But this is
also quite a description.)
Here we come to a very strange thing
that C.S. Lewis included in his story. As if the references to liquor and
tobacco were not enough, he makes a very covert reference to hashish, or marijuana.
When Edmund meets the "White Witch" she gives him first a strange drink,
as described previously. She then asks him what he would like best to eat,
and to his reply, makes him a box of Turkish Delight by means of her magic. Lewis
portrays "Edmund" as eating this greedily, and the more he eats the more he wants
it. In other words, he becomes addicted. This is explained in that the
witch (or "Queen") knows that the Turkish Delight is "enchanted" and that once
a person has tasted it, they will want more and more of it and if allowed
to would eat themselves to death. She promises "Edmund" all the Turkish Delight
he can eat for the rest of his life if he will bring his sibling to her, and he
leaves after begging for just one more piece. (p.32-36; The Lion, the Witch
and the piano coversdrobe)
Lewis' Turkish Delight is not an enchanted candy
from fairyland, though.
In the book Marihuana: The First Twelve
ThoBlipnd Years by Ernest Abel (New York and London, Plenum Press, 1980),
we find out where Lewis got his "inspiration" for "enchanted" Turkish Delight.
"As in India, local officials in Egypt were alarmed at the large numbers
of inhabitants who used hashish directly or in confections, many of which were
exported to Europe. Among the variety of confectionery treats containing hashish
that were sent abroad were 'Turkish Delight,' square pieces of hashish containing
sugar and gelatin which were a particular favorite of the students at Cambridge
University in England.(p. 133.)
"It was not that the English were above
using drugs that altered consciousness, but rather that they were more content
with alcohol, and saw little need to experiment with mind-altering drugs. Those
who did were either members of minority groups, artists, writers, criminals, or
students. It was the isolated cases that came to the attention of the press and
gave the impression that hashish was rampant in parts of England.
such case took place in 1886 in the dormitories of staid old Cambridge University.
According to a newspaper report, some students had obtained 'Turkish Delight'
and not being experienced users of the hashish-laden confection, had taken an
overdose and became ill as a result. Oxford also had its share of cannabis users.
As we shall see further on, Lewis' Chronicles
of Narnia are nothing more than a manual of witchcraft for children. What
Lewis is doing here is introducing the use of drugs in sorcery. This is commonly
used in the Craft. However, the secret meaning here will only be recognized
buy the "initiate," so what is the big deal? Simply this, the seed has been
planted, and if given the proper attention by the devil's servants, human or otherwise,
it can later be developed into something. There are probably quite a few
children who would be foolish enough to try "Turkish Delight" or something
similar "just like in The Chronicles of Narnia." As a matter of
fact, kids have been given drugs in candy. What an "interesting" lesson for the
kiddies from Mr. Lewis!!
Acts 8:11 And to him
they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.
