I’m trying to get all worked up over the Da Vinci Code. But I just can’t. I don’t have the energy.
Yes, Dan Brown’s little tome is filled with theological nonsense. Yes, there is an underlying anti-Christianity permeating the book. Yes, people are taking its narrative claims WAY too seriously as historical truth.
100 years from now (heck, 2 years from now), The Da Vinci Code will be forgotten, but Christianity will stand strong. Christianity has thrived for 2000 years, not because it defended itself against false claims, but because it proclaims a message of life and salvation.
Christian histrionics against this book and movie only serve to prove the point the book is making, that we are an authoritarian church bent on protecting ourselves rather than serving the world.
This all I’m going to say on this subject. (Maybe)
