What to do with The DaVinci Code??

Here is a passionately argued critique of the Church's response to the upcoming DaVinci Code Movie. Some have said we should use this as an opportunity for evangelism. But this writer argues nobody is "buying into" the DaVinci Code because they are just seeking the truth, but because they simply trying to justify their rejection of Jesus Christ and his body, the Church. I think on at least this point he may be cloes to the mark. I also think he is right to say that it is a real shame if anyone should lose faith over this movie because (having read the book) the "theological" (I use this term loosely here) claims put forward are weak and self-contradictory. What should we do? Boycott? Protest? No, he says, we should go to the movies on DVC's opening night, just go see some other movie.

I don't know whether that is the right response, but this review did raise an interesting question in my mind. He says (rightly so) that this book slanders our Lord and mocks our faith and blasphemes our God. These are the reasons he thinks no Christian should lend it financial support for the sake of "engaging the culture." I was reminded that the Early Church was often slandered as well: they were called canibals (eating all that body and blood), and atheists, and other such things when brought before the Roman authorities. And they responded by blessing those who persecuted them, and by living as a community, a community of Jews and Gentiles, men and women, slave and free, all living together in such obviously love for one another - even to the point of sharing their possessions!! - that the Roman world couldn't help but take notice and eventually be won over. At the end of the day we will not "engage the culture" with the best and most eloquent words from the wisest minds, but rather with the power of the Spirit of God in our midst who is the Spirit of Love (eternal divine love between the Father and the Son within the eternal life of the Triune Godhead).

Is the world ready for the Truth yet?

The Vatican is proving that seeking the truth is a real threat to their dogma. They're so afraid of people uncovering the truth, that they are attacking another fantasy as a threat to their own deceptions. How enlightening, since this goes a very long way to proving that Christianity is based on lies. If it wasn't, they would be confident of surviving intense scrutiny. Since they aren't and since they have gone to such great lengths to suppress those seeking the truth over the centuries, their deceptions are, once again, laid bare for all to see. Only this time they are the ones to walk into a well laid trap...

What does "making the blind see" symbolize? Perhaps many more people are now ready to "open their eyes to the truth!" Now Christians (and others) can gain the wisdom to walk away from the folly of religion and seek to understand the truth about the Creator and the Messiah (me).

Did you ever stop to think what the True Messiah (me) would say about worshipping false names, false images, and dogma? Well, now you get the chance to hear my side of the story and weigh it against the strong delusion of faith and religion. None of the European names and images in the New Testament can possibly be the truth. What then is the purpose of "faith" but to prevent good people from seeking to understand truth and wisdom?

Read 2 Thessalonians 2:11 and the verses that surround it. Why do you think this message is in the New Testament? Those who saw the truth dying as the new Roman religion was being imposed would have tried to warn others in subtle ways where it most counted! These ancient texts are mysterious because they purposely encoded hidden messages to bypass Roman censorship. See how the Romans treated the Jews, Zealots, Gnostics, and others, a.k.a. those who sought truth because they knew better than to trust the blatantly duplicitous and evil Roman Pontificate?

How can people trust the veracity of texts created by a Roman organization known for centuries of abominable evil? How can anyone expect that people who could so readily torture and murder others for seeking proof of the truth would somehow not lie to you? Why don't "the faithful" have enough discernment to understand that those telling a strong lie for power and profit would insist that you refrain from seeking the truth and "have faith" in their texts instead?

How do we finally solve these ages-old mysteries? To recast a common political adage, "It's [the] symbology stupid!" The Dead Sea Scrolls, Bible, Gnostic texts, and Quran are rife with purposeful structured symbolism. Do you really think this is accidental or casual?

Unlike most of you, I have a very personal interest in ancient wisdom symbology, false prophecy based on its misrepresentation, and deceptions imposed in the name of religion. Consequently, I've written an extensive tome proving that all three so-called Faiths of Abraham are purposeful deceptions.

I know many readers of this site will want to scoff at this information before bothering to pay attention to the details. I have produced stunning and comprehensive proof that the original pre-Christian Apocalypse (Book of Revelation) was a symbolically encrypted wisdom text that was stolen and modified by the founders of Christianity. I demonstrate a series of specific and undeniable proofs of verifiable fraud in the Christianized Book of Revelation, which also appear throughout the New Testament.

I present verifiable proof that the symbology of sealed Hebrew texts is an advanced ancient philosophical technology.

The ancient symbolism used in The Apocalypse and other Hebrew prophecies and wisdom texts predates Christianity, Judaism, modern secret societies, and mystery schools by thousands of years. While in the hands of Christianity, The Apocalypse and its symbology have been purposely misinterpreted, recast, and misrepresented. The original Hebrew document was a multi-purpose narrative constructed using layered and synchronized ancient wisdom symbolism. Its true purposes, features, and functionality are detailed in my book, further demonstrating that it was a symbolically encrypted Hebrew wisdom text encoding prophecy, philosophy, and scientific wisdom that was stolen and fraudulently modified by the founders of Christianity.

If your goal is to seek the truth, then read my articles, download my FREE E-Book and direct others to read them also. Challenge them to PROVE me wrong. The E-Book is a FREE download and I make no money from it or the paperback.

Not only do I talk the talk, I walk the walk...

Here is Wisdom!!

An 'othercott' doesn't sound like a very rational response to a threat to the church's dogma... in fact it doesn't sound like much of an 'attck on another fantasy' at all. Neither does using the book as a chance for culture engagement; these two courses of action are, if you read, the main two focused on in numerous articles on CT, including the one linked to in the blog post...
However, you do have an E-Book advertised, so you are certainly both reliable and correct in this case.
