You know, there are a lot of Christian leaders shouting, “Stay away from The Da Vinci Code!” Why? Are they afraid that their parishioners and congregants will learn false teachings? Are they afraid that their people will be lead away from the faith?
Any concern for their people should have manifested itself years ago, when they failed to lead them in genuine study of the Word of God. They failed to teach the truth yesterday, and now a wolf in sheep’s clothing is threatening them today. The “children of God” don’t know the difference between sheep and wolves. I propose that those children of God are not children of God.
We’re too busy having seminars and programs instead of teaching the Word of God. We don’t take the time to read our Bibles, instead we’re watching all kinds of TV and reading pulp-fiction.
Dan Brown is capable of passing fiction for fact because Christians don’t know their faith — what and why they believe. That’s not Mr. Brown’s fault.
I hope he doesn’t get in trouble for that. It seams that each time a catholic priest says the truth, and the Pope has said otherwise, someone gets in trouble.
