How bad is it to take interest in things like “The Bible Code”? I ask because today when my dad was on the computer, he noticed a shortcut to a program called “Unlocking The Bible Code.”
When he saw what it was, he became a little worried and upset and asked me who downloaded the program and who uses it. I knew it was my brother’s, since he had asked our grandparents for it for his birthday…I didn’t tell him that though, since I’m tired of being caught in the middle of these types interrogations and being blamed by both sides…blamed and harassed by my brother for ratting him out, and/or blamed by my dad for not saying anything sooner. So I just told him “I don’t know, try talking to him about it and asking him.” Then I assured him again it wasn’t my program, and in fact I was trying to grow deeper in my Catholic faith by learning more about it and coming to places like these.
I didn’t really think much of this Bible Code thing at first anyway, but I would like to know just how spiritually unhealthy this kind of thing is. I wouldn’t want my older brother to get a warped faith or anything.
