I gave noticed a disturbing trend in the National Geographic TV Channel - maybe it is just me - but I can’t help but wonder if it has an Anti-Christian agenda.
Recent programmes such as “Secrets of the Cross: The Lost Tomb Of Jesus” and “The Real Jesus?” seem to be determined to undermine the truth of The Resurrection. National Geographic Channel purports that much of its programming is based on scientific evidence but ultimately these programmes are little more than speculation spread out over an hour and repeated frequently.
The *Secrets of the Cross *programme tried to state that the tomb of Jesus and his family has been found. The Real Jesus? programme claims that another Messiah lived just before the time of Jesus and did all the things that were meant to have happened in the Gospels.
Another series which will be starting soon on one of the National Geographic’s sister channels will be “Christianity: A History & Development of Christianity” - the first episode has be described thusly: “Howard Jacobson discussed Jesus as a Jew, Jacobson is well qualified as a well known Jewish writer. He asserts that Jesus was against Roman rule of his region and didn’t intend to start a new religion. For Jesus’s family and followers practised within Judaism, for them he was a charismatic Rabbi.”
Would the Jewish people allow programmes that challenged the teachings of Moses and ripped apart of Old Testament? Would Muslims allow programmes which effectively debunked the existence of the Prophet Mohammed? Of course not - why do we allow it?
The problem is, if we complain about it - we are seen as religious nutters. If we do nothing - we allow the lie.
