The Da Vinci Code
Biblical or Myth?
First we seen a lot of hype from the media about the "Harry Potter" books, even
a lot of parents were excited about the release of these books because it drew
their child's interest in reading. Then the Harry Potter movies came out
enhancing the hype even more. The occultists love it as it portrayed witchcraft
in a positive light. Next it was the "Passion of Christ". A movie praised by the
mass mainstream so-called Christian media. Now here comes along "The Da Vinci
Code". It has sold over 41 million copies, translated into 145 different
languages, ABC did a hour long special on the book. It was a best seller on the
NY times list for two years. And of course there was a movie produced which
grossed 229 million worldwide on the opening weekend, making it the first
largest money maker of 2006. Although it's critic acclaim is nothing like Harry
Potter or the Passion of Christ. The book was hyped as fast action pace, but the
movie turned out to be nowhere near as good according to secular critics.
DECEPTIONS AND CONFUSION
The movie has brought deceptions of displaying itself as creditable account of
the history of Christianity as well as people who are unsaved and a few who are
saved scratching their heads in confusion on how they came up with such claims
about Christianity. One of the claims comes from the fourth century. Here it's
claimed that Emperor Constantine had some “gospels” kept out of the Bible. But
this claim is untrue, in fact, Constantine had nothing to do with the contents
of the New Testament at all. The canon of the New Testament was already in place
before Constantine came into power. And not only that, but Constantine was not a
believer, he still continue to be involved in Baal worship while claiming to be
The anti-Christian gospel of "Thomas" was heavily used in the book as well as
the movie. It has such passages as; “The one who is acquainted with father and
mother will be called the son of a prostitute.”
“For each woman who will make herself male will enter the kingdom of heaven.”
As a result of such as source of heresy we find the movie displaying Christ as
an ordinary man who was not divine, did not die for the sins of His people, and
was not resurrected. Instead, he married Mary Magdalene and had at least one
child. More confusion in the “The Da Vinci Code,” as there is a claim of an
ancient secret society called the Priory of Sion that preserved information
about Jesus and Mary Magdalene and their descendents. However, the Priory of
Sion that is portrayed in the book is a hoax. As we will see, it never existed.
It was a combination of faked history and forged documents.There have been three
Priories of Sion. The first one (from about 1100 to 1617) was legitimate. It was
a group of Catholic monks who honored the Virgin Mary under the title of Our
Lady of Zion. (In French, “Zion” is spelled “Sion.”) That was traditional
Catholic devotion to the Virgin Mary, by real monks, in a real priory. (A priory
is a kind of monastary.) Then, in the 20th century, there were two Priories of
Sion that were both created by Pierre Plantard, a Frenchman who lived from 1920
to 2000. Plantard was convicted of fraud and embezzlement in 1953. His first
Priory of Sion began in 1956. It was a social club with a journal. It only
lasted a year.
Plantard’s second Priory of Sion is the important one, in terms of conspiracy
theory and “The Da Vinci Code.” It was an elaborate hoax. He began fabricating
it in the early 1960s. He faked its existence and he tried to make it appear to
be ancient. (As we will see, Plantard later testified that it was a fraud.)
Plantard was an occultist. He admired Hitler. He was influenced by a pro-Nazi
man named Evola who believed that mankind should be ruled by a “government of
the spiritual elite.” Plantard’s fraudulent Priory of Sion is supposedly an
ancient secret society that preserved records of the bloodline of the supposed
descendants of Jesus and Mary Magdalene. (Plantard claimed to be one of those
descendants.) Yet as we know, it was all a hoax!
On the cover of “The Da Vinci Code” it says (in small print) that it is a
novel. However, the book itself claims that its assertions are “facts” that are
accepted by historians and scholars. When Dan Brown was interviewed by ABC
television, he said that the information in the book is accurate. In an
interview with Borders, Dan Brown said that all of the history portrayed in “The
Da Vinci Code” is accurate. Countless Internet sites have quotes from the book
and treat the historical and religious statements as being accurate.
The truth of the matter is, the book and the movie are lies. It's an attempt to
attack Christ and Christianity in general. Young people as well as older people
who are unsaved will be deceived, confused, and perhaps even question the
authority of the Bible on it's own. Hollywood is playing tricks with the
Christian community and is making a lot of money as a result. Tom Hanks defends
this movie calling it misunderstood, but he has a lot to gain by the success of
this movie, and he is not a Christian. People should not go see this movie as
well as others like it. Even movies which are praised by so-called conservatives
like the Passion of Christ. These movies are way beyond the decent entertainment
realm, and more or less into the deception realm.
