A 50 YEAR OLD WORD TO THE CHURCH TODAY

CS Lewis wrote a very interesting book on prayer called “LETTERS TO MALCOLM:  CHIEFLY ON PRAYER”

I love this book that Lewis wrote, especially the concept he uses.  Malcolm is a fake guy…he writes to him as if he is corresponding with a close friend who is asking him questions on prayer.

Lewis has never done a book  this way before.

 

The first chapter is hauntingly prophetic .  It is shouting to  the modern church in America today with all it’s gimmicks and edgy innovations.  

Written 50 years ago in 1964, please read this rather lengthy excerpt I pulled from this amazing book and tell me this is not something every contemporary pastor should read.

 

Before you go to your next conference and hear “the next new thing”….read this excerpt from C.S. Lewis.

Too Much Bronze in the House of God

Read this crazy story from II Chronicles 12

10 Then King Rehoboam made shields of bronze in their place and committed them to the care of the commanders of the guard who guarded the door of the kings house

9 So Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem, and took the treasures of the house of the Lord and the treasures of the kings palace. He took everything; he even took the golden shields which Solomon had made. 10 Then King Rehoboam made shields of bronze in their place and committed them to the care of the commanders of the guard who guarded the door of the kings house. 11 As often as the king entered the house of the Lord, the guards came and carried them and then brought them back into the guards room

 

These Bronze Shields are a strange phenomenon in the life of Rehoboam. 

They are replicas of the real thing.

They are hypocrite shields.

They are make believe.

They are their for the show but not for the battle.
