The C.S. Lewis Deception
Many people have referenced him as a “patron saint” of modern Christianity.
Christianity Today calls C.S. Lewis "our patron saint" ("Still Surprised by Lewis").
But, what does C.S. Lewis really believe about Christianity?
Lewis said this while traveling through Greece with his wife in 1960:
“I had some ado to prevent Joy (and myself) from lapsing into paganism in Attica! AT DAPHNI IT WAS HARD NOT TO PRAY TO APOLLO THE HEALER. BUT SOMEHOW ONE DIDN’T FEEL IT WOULD HAVE BEEN VERY WRONG--WOULD HAVE ONLY BEEN ADDRESSING CHRIST SUB SPECIE APOLLONIUS” (C.S. Lewis to Chad Walsh, May 23, 1960, cited from George Sayer, Jack: A Life of C.S. Lewis, 1994, p. 378) (Emphasis added).
(See 1 Peter 1:3, Matthew 3:17, etc.).
1 Timothy 2:5 says:
“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;”
Acts 4:12 says:
“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
Apollo was a pagan god worshipped by the ancient Romans and Greeks.
C.S. Lewis’s Catholic Beliefs

Other Catholic (and pagan) beliefs Lewis held included purgatory and prayers for the dead. These both are pagan practices going back to ancient Babylon and ancient Egypt (See The Two Babylons by Alexander Hislop).
C.S. Lewis said: “I believe in Purgatory ... Our souls demand Purgatory, don’t they?” (Roger Lancelyn Green and Walter Hooper, C.S. Lewis: A Biography, 1974, pp. 110-111).
C.S. Lewis wrote in Letters to Malcolm: “Of course I pray for the dead. The action is so spontaneous, so all but inevitable, that only the most compulsive theological case against it would deter men. And I hardly know how the rest of my prayers would survive if those for the dead were forbidden” (p. 109).
These are pagan and Catholic practices.

In his preface to Mere Christianity, C.S. Lewis writes:
'The reader should be warned that I offer no help to anyone who is hesitating between two Christian "denominations." You will not learn from me whether you ought to become an Anglican, a Methodist, a Presbyterian, or a Roman Catholic.'
Here, he is saying that Catholicism is a denomination of Christianity. As we have shown in Mystery Babylon – The Great Harlot…, Catholicism is not anything but paganism with pseudo-Christian labels.
