C.S. Lewis is a loved writer by much of modern Christianity. While almost no one will deny he is a brilliant writer, many people have brought up concerns about his theology. Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio said, "Let's just avoid C.S. Lewis, and when someone is quoting C.S. Lewis to you all the time, I worry about them." (Source). Similarly, in an article from Christianity Today (Back when it was good in 1963), the late Martyn Lloyd-Jones said, "C. S. Lewis had a defective view of salvation and was an opponent of the substitutionary and penal view of the atonement." Todd Friel from Wretched Radio said about Lewis's beliefs, "I think those are actually some very serious heresies." (Source). I have some similar concerns when it comes to C.S. Lewis.
C.S. Lewis is loved and respected by many evangelicals, however he taught many heresies that should caution us to quoting Lewis and reading his books. There are better teachers to quote and more edifying books to read. It is more beneficial to quote people who believe in inerrancy, penal substitution, and the exclusivity of Jesus.
