Da Wild, Da Crazy, Da Vinci

I think this is beginning to get out of hand. I haven't thought this through before typing, so keep in mind that I am basically "thinking out loud" at the moment. I just got this email trying to convince me that many Christians are going to be led astray after watching the Da Vinci Code movie and that THIS DVD will convince them of the real truth. I keep running across this stuff left and right and it is getting under my skin but I'm not sure what is striking me wrong. My church bulk ordered books on witnessing to people who have fallen for the da Vinci code lie. This doesn't bother me. It's the angle taken by the publishers of all these books and movies that gets to me. As Christians, reading our BIBLES should convince us that the book and movie are inaccurate. A brief google search on gnosticism doesn't hurt either. It's not that I don't think the counter-measure books and dvds will be interesting (I do, and I'm interested in reading/watching) but it seems like a "let's jump on the bandwagon and make a profit" kind of thing rather than a call for us to know God's word for ourselves. I know that as Americans, it seems we need spoonfed everything, but this is over the top. 'You need this dvd so that you won't be led astray.' What I want to hear are these same people, not selling a product, but urging people to READ YOUR BIBLES ALREADY!


On a lighter note, here is a hilarious video clip on the Evolution of Dance.

The Evolution of the Dance was hilarious. I was dancing and laughing in my seat! Then I checked out other video clips. I killed an hour easy. We should have made more movies with Ben and Charity growing up, we could have been famous.

For my part, I don't give them any validation or money by reading or watching. They can keep their DaVinci Code, and get no profit from me, either in publicity or cash.

I don't get the hubbub either. I read the Da Vinci code and like it. I read it as FICTION. Just like Harry Potter and the Chronicles of Narnia. I can appreciate taking a stand and not supporting the franchise, but I think it's condescending to assume Christians are so easily swayed by a well told story.
