The Da Vinci Code - Malicious Entertainment

The Da Vinci Code makes me happy about one thing - the movie National Treasure came first.

If you have not seen National Treasure - it is a thriller of an action and romance movie that takes pleasure in trashing history. Much of Hollywood has a goal to discredit the American founding fathers, all to make it easier to remake America in their image.

If there is one thing the constituents of malevolent Hollywood hates more than liberty and an extremely small non-intrusive government - it would be Christianity. The Da Vinci Code is a romance novel turned assault weapon - and aimed at Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ and his Church have faced worse than Hollywood and The Da Vinci Code,
and thrived.

Powerful nations have focused their powers on stomping out the church. False religions spring up that use the Christian name - but deny Christ. Even influential members of the church have turned on Jesus and sought wealth or power in this world instead of the truth. A pagan romance novelist now invents religions and rewrites history in The Da Vinci Code -- a malicious attack that has no chance of hurting the true church.

Christ died to save all of us - and Satan rejoiced at his victory while Jesus remained in the tomb. When Jesus Christ arose from the dead in power the tables turned. So it is with every attack of the wicked one, he plots and attacks, and loses far more than he hopes to gain.

Satan is but a creature, created by God, not an equal to God. God gave us free choice in our own futures. Satan, knowing God, rebelled against God sealing Satan's fate and that of his followers. You have the free choice to follow Satan to his punishment in Hell - or to follow Jesus Christ and enjoy eternal joy in his presence.

This is what malevolent Hollywood hates. They say they do not believe in absolutes - but package and sell their absolutes while attempting to discredit others. It is similar to their demanding that you have a moral and fiscal obligation to support their causes; even as they say there are no absolute moral values and humans are mere products of uncaring evolution.

Whether by malicious entertainment like The Da Vinci Code, or some other stratagem, false teachings will be put forth. You have your free will, study the Bible, ask God to lead you to the truth. He loves you - God will instruct you.

Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work. -II Thessalonians 2

Father God,

Thank you that we have your word - and your word is truth.

We see a world thirsty for revelation of the truth, use us.

Satan seeks to steal, we thank you that the thief not only has to relinquish the object of the theft - but has to pay restitution beyond for the theft.

We are yours lord, and we rejoice knowing that others will soon discover the enduring joy of a relationship with you due to the failed plots of the enemy.

God we come to you now seeking your direction.

We will read your scripture, we will pray, we will seek your face.

Discuss with us now, show us where and how we can be most effective for you
