Deciphering ‘The Da Vinci Code’

This blog entry was written by Al Mohler almost three years ago now when the Da Vinci Code first came out, and still amply applies to the current fuss with the movie about to be released. Al Mohler does a good, concise job of laying out the main arguments proposed by Dan Brown within the book (whether Dan actually believes them or not, I don’t know), and then asks the question, “Is this conspiracy even feasible?” I think one of the big problems with this book is that Dan Brown takes some historic truth and then mingles it with pure non-truth to make it appear plausible to the average reader. And being that the average reader generally doesn’t know the actual history of Christianity to begin with, someone seemingly speaking in an authoritative manner can spout out correct names and dates but have all of the other information dead wrong about those people and events, and the reader buys it hook, line, and sinker. All in all, this, amongst other things, such as the Gospel of Judas, are nothing new under the sun: it is called Gnosticism. This is purely on attack on Jesus Christ, the Son of God. The same types of general arguments against Christianity have been brought up in the past and refuted over and over again by Christian scholars and historians, but the world will always reject the factual evidence because the world hates Christ. Those who continue in their obstinance will not understand the things of God unless the Holy Spirit gives them eyes to see and ears to hear the call of God unto salvation, to see and know in their hearts that these things are indeed true. And it’s funny how those arguments against Christianity rise and fall over and over again, but the truth of the Gospel continues without moving to this very day … hmmm, maybe that’s because what it says is the truth? Just consider …
