The Greatest Cover-up in Human History?
The first trailer from the movie "The Da Vinci Code" is now available. I’m a big fan of both Tom Hanks, who stars in this movie, and Ron Howard, the director, and I’m probably going to see the movie. Ron Howard has indicated publicly that he understands this movie to be fiction, but …. how many people watching this move will be persuaded to consider that, just possibly, there may be truth to the claim that in fact there are secret codes that reveal that the story of Christ that the Church has proclaimed for nearly 2,000 years is in fact a lie and that the real truth reveals something quite a bit different? In recent years there have been a spate of books capitalizing on people’s gullibility, making much of the Gnostic Gospels [which read like they were written under the influence of LSD] and the complexities of the textual variants between various manuscript copies of the New Testament [no variant changes even one single doctrine]. And so, the Church will here have the opportunity to do what the Church has been given to do by her Lord: teach!
