Comment on (CMCSL-7): C.S. Lewis was a Universalist by William OFlaherty http://www.essentialcslewis.com/2017/08/12/cmcsl-7-c-s-lewis-was-a-universalist/#comment-17841 Sun, 13 Aug 2017 00:38:48 +0000 http://www.essentialcslewis.com/?p=17647#comment-17841 THIS COMMENT FROM DAVID ISN’T SHOWING, SO I’M POSTING IT HERE:
I managed to look up a separate link to the preface, and the fuller context shows that while MacDonald WAS saying that hell is not permanent, he was strongly OPPOSING the view that it does not therefore exist. Here is the wider context: “in these days has arisen another falsehood — less, yet very perilous : thousands of half- thinkers imagine that, since it is declared with such authority that hell is not everlasting, there is then no hell at all. To such folly I for one have never given enticement or shelter. I see no hope for many, no way for the divine love to reach them, save through a very ghastly hell. Men have got to repent ; there is no other escape for them, and no escape from that.”

I will leave your comments even after I revised the article because it will not likely go into as much detail.

Even thought I will update the article, let me put it here:
Preface to Thisted’s Letters from Hell (1866)
It can be found here:
https://archive.org/details/lettersfromhell02thisgoog

It seems that link does have the 1885 edition with MacDonald’s preface. Here is an article that quotes it (on page 8):

Lewis was a Universalist by David Jack http://www.essentialcslewis.com/2017/08/12/cmcsl-7-c-s-lewis-was-a-universalist/#comment-17836 Sat, 12 Aug 2017 23:57:03 +0000 http://www.essentialcslewis.com/?p=17647#comment-17836 A little bit of clarification about MacDonald. It is fair to say that he was ‘a proponent of universal salvation’, but that was rather his strong belief and hope, rather than something he dogmatically insisted upon. In fact, in his semi autobiographical novel ‘Robert Falconer’, he has the hero Robert admit the possibility of some ultimately rejecting God’s love, which a strict universalist would not allow. I would be interested to see the source of GM’s ‘most extreme’ statement about universalism, as shown above, because I have never come across anything like the assertion ‘the is no hell’ in his writings, and indeed it seems very much to contradict the rest of his teaching as I understand it.

I plan to expand this essay for the book version I’m working on that will explore misconceptions and misquotes.
