Misquoting C.S. Lewis on Social Media

I have noticed a quote on social media that is being misattributed to C. S. Lewis. This false quote claims that Satan used fear of people getting sick to lead them to hell. There are a few variations of it, but they are all false.

C. S. Lewis never wrote this, nor did he write a book called “Letters of the Devil to his Nephew”. He wrote the Screwtape Letters in 1942, but this false quote does not appear in his book. It was written by a Facebook user in 2020.

I am not going to go on anyone’s social media timeline and tell them what to post or what to take down, but am providing this info on mine.

If you haven’t read the Screwtape Letters recently, please do. It is a great book.
