"...Eustace's penitence is downplayed. He apologises for being a 'sop', rendering his previous negativism a sin against the spirit of adventure, which he atoned for by his derring-do as a dragon.
The film's under-emphasis on the grace of salvation is therefore the context for the controversial comment by the actor who provides the voice of Aslan, Liam Neeson:
'Aslan symbolises a Christlike figure, but he also symbolises for me Mohammed, Buddha and all the great spiritual leaders and prophets over the centuries.'
Who unlike Jesus Christ taught salvation by works."
I've not seen the film nor am I as conversant in the Narnia details as some of my fellow Christians. But if CC is correct, the movie gets into just the kind of fudging that misdirects many a preacher and steers their churches into trouble.
