Da Vinci Code lies exposed?
After the preceding post, for the sake of balance, here's another forwarded email this time attacking the book and the movie The Da Vinci Code. Author is also unknown. It's a bit ironic that you read all these forwarded emails supposedly defending or attacking a belief, and yet they're all anonymous.
The Da Vinci Code Lie Exposed
The movie "The Da Vinci Code" staring Tom Hanks, directed by Ron Howard will soon be released this year.
This movie will have the potential to deceive billions of the world's population. The story line attacks the very heart of the Gospel and attempts to destroy the very nature and character of the Lord Jesus Christ as the Son of God.
(Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together,against the Lord, and against His anointed? Psalm 2:1, 2)
Satan knows his time is about up and now he will attempt to take one of his best shots by enlisting all of hell to belch out its worse deception in that of stripping Jesus Christ of His Divine nature and turning him into a mere man who secretly marries Mary Magdalene.
To add insult to injury the story depicts the idea that certain shadowy Christian groups for 2,000 years have purposely and secretly hidden this so called "fact" behind the scenes and thus it is finally revealed in a coded message buried in Leonardo Da Vinci's painting.
Even the movie trailer for this story presents it as "the truth" finally revealed about Jesus! (this is just what the Islamic Fascists need to give added credence to their bloody, destructive campaign of global terror!) It is time for Christians (the Body of Christ) everywhere to rise up and expose this lie from the pit of hell that will be perpetuated on the whole world in just a couple of short months.
This is no time to back down in the "day of battle". It is a time to pray and fast like never before that God will raise up a standard against the enemy as he comes in like a flood. Satan always "overplays his hand" and once again he is about to overplay it big time because as usual he overplays it right into God's plan to present the "truth" to the whole world. "..and this Gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come". Matthew 24:14
Oswald Chambers states in his timeless writing My Utmost For His Highest, "Our calling is not primarily to be holy men and women but to be proclaimers of the Gospel of God. The one all-important thing is that the Gospel of God should be recognized as the abiding reality." Yet we have to ask ourselves today when this abiding reality comes under direct attack who will defend it? The answer can only be that those of us who have been transformed by it's truth for eternity will and must defend it here and now.
Pray that Christian lay people, prayer leaders, writers, pastors, and all those in Christian media outlets will get the message out and expose this deception of hell and reveal the lie this movie will present before it ever hits the theaters. We can only say about Tom Hanks & Ron Howard "Father forgive them for they know not what they do" but to the enemy of the cross we can only declare to him, "go ahead take your best shot because your time is up and you will soon be cast into the lake of fire"
Email this on to everyone you know (don't delete, give it feet) and lets expose this lie for what it is because the hour is late and much later than we think.
What do I think? I think that this debate is already old news. Despite fears that the ideas in the book (and the movie) could damage the reputation and credibility of the Church beyond repair, the Church is still the institution it always was. I for one, never doubted that the Church would be able to weather these controversies. It would take more than a book or a movie to shatter 2,000 year-old beliefs. And it's always a difficult thing to make people believe one thing, after believing something else for so long.
Does that mean that I think the ideas in the book are all hogwash? Let's just say that while the book suffers from some historical fallacies, there is merit and historical basis for at least some of the theories presented. Well, that's what I think. At the very least, it encouraged me to learn the truth for myself, and that's what I suggest you do too.
At the end of the day, it will all just boil down to what you truly believe in. And that is what matters most.
As for emails like this one, and the one before, read them, but take them with a grain of salt. What's important is that you decide for yourself what you want to believe, and don't let other people make that choice for you.
