Da Vinci Code

So there's all this hype about the Da Vinci Code.

Christians are mad and non-Christians are mad that Christians are mad and Dan Brown's making a boatload of $$$.

Well maybe not so much sine the movie did not fare well at the theaters.

Why are Christians mad? Hmmm...

I can understand being bothered that someone is spewing blasphemy about Christ. I can understand being upset that people are buying into this book as though it were Scripture. I can even understand being upset that people are suggesting that Christ was married.

Should we be so angry?

I dunno.

The Da Vinci Code does encourage us as Christians to know WHAT we believe and WHY we believe it. That is always a good thing. Once we know those things, we can share with others about the falsehoods in Dan Brown's book.

However, just getting all ticked off and spewing back that Dan Brown is of the devil isn't going to win any non-Christians over. Know what I mean?

Besides, if you believe as I do about salvation, then Dan Brown's book won't hinder those who are going to be saved from being saved. God is in control of everything and even Dan Brown can't surprise God.
