Was he impotent to save Uncle Andrew or sovereign to not save him?

Boneman

Quoting from page 202 of the Magician's Nephew, Aslan said, "This world is bursting with life for these few days because the song with which I called it into life still hangs in the air and rumbles in the ground. It will not be so for long. But I cannot tell that to this old sinner, and I cannot comfort him either; he has made himself unable to hear my voice. If I spoke to him, he would only hear growlings and roarings. Oh Adam's sons, how cleverly you defend yourselves against all that might do you good! But I will give him the only gift he is still able to receive... sleep... sleep and be separated for some few hours from all the torments you have devised for yourself."

That sounds like impotence to me.

This "Lion" just created Narnia. Give him a break, he's just a bloomin' pussycat he is. Are you expecting too much from him?

Boneman

Hey man, if you're going to do the whole conversion allegory, get it right!

mike

I didn't realize that I was "doing" anything. Aslan is Turkish for Lion, that's what he is, a Lion. If I can't fly that doesn't make me impotent.

Boneman

Are you saying this conversion allegory works? Or are you just defending Aslan because you like felines?

mike

By the Lion's mane I'll defend him to the death!
As well as the Tisroc (may he live forever.)
He could have "saved" Uncle Andrew if He wanted to, He simply pulled his sovereign paw away and left him to his own desire. It's kinda cool that the creator is a creature.

Boneman

Don't you want to make some comment on another post? I thought maybe you would respond to the Olypics one. I tried a little Marsden... If I post something on the Trojans would you let Aslan go?
