While the writings of J.R.R. Tolkein and C.S. Lewis are widely accepted as classics within the realms of fantasy fiction, many are unaware of the connection between these two men and the secretive Occult group known as the 'Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.'

I am a fan of the works of both of these writers. However, it is very interesting to note just how many prominent writers were members of (or had/have some type of direct connections to) Occult organizations such as Freemasonry or the Golden Dawn. It seems that these organizations, at least to some extent, determine who all of the prominent figures will be on the world stage, whether it be in the literary world, in the political realm, or when it comes to the actors/actresses we see on the silver screen. They all must either have some type of connection to one of these Occult organizations or be from one of the elite bloodlines. Otherwise, you will likely never hear about them, regardless of how talented they are in their field.

Till We Have Faces is C.S. Lewis' best work of fiction, in my opinion. Reading that book really changed me. I wanted to create some artwork and music to show my love and respect for it.

According to most secular Americans religious morality is anti-sex, anti-pleasure and anti-fun. C.S. Lewis's views were considerably more nuanced. Our modern culture has built its towers on sand and now they are crumbling. Can we rebuild something better on the bedrock Lewis has laid bare for us?

In September 1931 C.S. Lewis accepted Christ after a lengthy conversation with his friend and fellow Oxford don J.R.R. Tolkien. Both would go on to become two of the greatest Fantasy writers of the 20th century. Today their work is seen by many as quaint, outmoded, even reactionary. But can their halting voyage toward Truth help us set our course in a world drugged on lies?

This was a rare gem picked up at random. The writer of the Narnia chronicles writes of heaven and hell from a very modern perspective, contemporary to the early twentieth century, when it was published. In it Hell is a world the size of an Atom in comparison to an immense heaven. Starting in the grey town of the underworld, the narrator has to travel from one to the other by riding a bus that grows ant man style to deliver the near transparent and insubstantial damned souls who come to visit or possibly stay if they can overcome their endless obsession with the lives they left and their petty grudges. It is a short and fascinating read in the tradition of Dante's inferno, but completely nontraditional in that it is presented with many science fiction related themes. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Mark Vernon and Malcolm Guite join Justin Brierley to talk about how the Inklings, a group of Oxford intellectuals including CS Lewis, JRR Tolkien and Owen Barfield, made sense of Christian faith.

Mark Vernon shares how he draws on Barfield’s approach in his new book ‘A secret history of Christianity’. Theologian-poet Malcolm Guite responds.

Deep at 10 minutes when she says they get envious of our qualities and it makes them want to hunt and destroy us. That seems accurate based on personal experiences I'll leave private. "They hate us and that's why they are coming at us." The spiritual nature of these matters explains why these parents go after their children as they do even though they share so much biology.

Rick Miracle liked to say we are spiritual beings in biological bodies, meaning these organic bodies are actually secondary to who we really are. Something is very different about them spiritually in a way they can't ever change.

In the movie What Dreams May Come there's a scene where these fallen souls are trying to bring down the few who walk above them not yet fallen. She says a lot of truth when she says our heart breaks for them. Our good intentions for them contrasted against their malice for us.

"If they're going to be drowning in misery in hell, why should anyone else be happy?" Hell is a concept I've heard them use. They're aware of their condition and of their attempts to spread it to you.

No contact is essential no matter how much you care for the other person. In The Weight of Glory, C.S. Lewis says we are here to help determine the fate of souls, but like I say something is very different about them in a way that can't be fixed, and you will get into a lot of trouble with We Are All God's Children kind of thinking.

I believe this is what They Live is about.

As usual she has a good understanding and good insights for those interested. "They are the ultimate method actors."

They don't want you to see the true self because if you saw them unmasked you would be running for your life.

She says people only change if they want to change, but I think this is something deeper than a psychological condition that can be changed.

They are pure evil and they know it. This is not a matter of beyond good and evil. It's pure evil that wears masks and acts.

If I were thinking of these entities I would be sympathetic to what some Jewish rabbis have said, such as:

"Gentile souls are of a completely different and inferior order. They are totally evil, with no redeeming qualities whatsoever."

That kind of extremist thinking actually makes sense if it's about psychopaths. It doesn't make sense if it's talking about racial or ethnic matters.

In this she says at 23 minutes that psychopaths managed to run off with a lot of pieces of her personality, her soul.

Understanding this information will transform how you think about and interact with the world.

After listening to The Great Divorce by C. S. Lewis a couple of times I've got some observations about hell that I want to try and work out, so I'm going to just let it fly and do some thinking in front of the camera. Those who choose hell are like SJWs who can't just let others be happy.

I’ve been listening to the great divorce by C. S. Lewis, don’t let the name throw you off, it’s a book about a bus load of people from hell visiting heaven.

Throughout the story you overhear conversations with denizens of hell speaking with angels and other people in heaven and they are trying to convince the ghost from hell that they should stay in heaven. One of the things that struck me about these conversations is that most of the people from hell accused those who lived in heaven of selfishness because they were joyous and happy while there were still people in hell. But the whole time they were talking they were being invited to live in heaven, yet they refuse because the people in heaven were being selfish.

It was within the damned soul the whole time to simply accept the gift. All heaven can do is offer, heaven can’t feel pain and suffering because the damned can’t bring themselves to accept a gift freely given.
