[quote=scriabin]I dismissed the whole DaVinci Code thing as complete nonsense from the start, as I’m sure the rest of us have.
I just realized though the extent of this book’s influence while finishing up a master’s degree at a local university. In a room full of 30-something, college educated professionals, the book’s ideas were well known and seemingly accepted as a entirely possible theory of historical truth.
How naive did I feel!
When the movie comes out and the kids see it this whole thing is going to go over the top–if it hasn’t already. I read the newspaper’s Saturday “Spirituality” section (it used to be called the “Religious” page) that highlights local ministers. At least twice I’ve read of pastors’ favorite books being the Code.
Admittingly, these pastors were of the new age persuasion; but just giving them the newspaper ink to espouse their support for DaVinci Code-like ideas legitimatizes these ideas to an un-Churched public.
Anyone else troubled at the way this DaVinci Code hoax is growing?
Couple books and movies like this with the New Age movement and we have a culture changing apostasy folks. The greatest threat to our culture is the New Age movement. I am certain of it…
This is what I heard from a friend this week:
Why worry about aborted babies, euthanasia or unjust deaths if they are simply reincarnated?
There is no good or evil, only that which get in the way of “the design” no heaven or hell, no personal god. Jesus is no longer relevant for our time…
Why follow any rules if we are god and reality is only what we make it?
Why humble ourselves to learn from our fellow human beings if we are focused only on the evolution of the human soul, creating our own souls,? People who are New Age are the enlightened ones, everyone else is a pee on, duped by western religion, the perfect religion for slaves.
Make no mistake we are in a spiritual battle and are underestimating the enemy. We have to keep this hooey out of our homes and be strong.
