Engaging Culture

Da Vinci Code Has Become a Christian Tool

The Los Angeles Times reports that pastors are finally realizing the great opportunity to use the movie “The Da Vinci Code” as a resource for reaching the culture with a message of faith. The article is titled, “Da Vinci Code Now a Tool to Win Christian Converts.” After months of hysteria, people of faith finally understand that culture can’t be stopped. It’s like a storm, and since we can’t stop the storm, our job is to rescue those caught up in it.

So pastors and Christian leaders are re-focusing now on using the film as an opportunity to engage the culture. My two appearances on MSNBC and numerous articles on the film have attempted just that – to make people realize the best way to engage the culture in order to make an impact.

The book is junk – no one argues that. Even liberal bloggers like Andrew Sullivan are shocked at the number of people who buy into the bad research and poor writing:

“A pity, I think. It’s hack fiction. People might actually believe it. This isn’t to say there isn’t a fascinating and important discussion to be had about the divisions and debates among the early Christians, and if the “Da Vinci Code” provokes such a discussion, fine. But on its own, it’s fictional dreck and Hollywood hooey.”

But the fact is, the cultural juggernaunt moves on, and our best hope is to be there in the conversation.

  1. The Da Vinci code movie is a tool to get people to to believe (the lie) that Christ and Mary had a child…

    Why?

    To condition people into believing that one day the “heir” will make himself known to the world. The movie tells us (a few times) that the “heir” will make himself know to the world.

    I bet that “heir” is none other than the antichrist.

    Luciferian world emerging…Wake up America!

    Leaders tell us there will be a one world Government:

    “By the end of this decade (2000 AD) we will live under the first One World Government that has ever existed in the society of nations … a government with absolute authority to decide the basic issues of human survival. One world government is inevitable.” Pope John Paul II quoted by Malachi Martin in the book “The Keys of This Blood”

    “In the next century, nations as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. National sovereignty wasn’t such a great idea after all.” Strobe Talbot, President Clinton’s Deputy Secretary of State, as quoted in Time, July 20th, l992.

    This “new world” is Luciferian based:

    Those promoting the New World Order, global society, want Christianity removed to make way for people to accept Lucifer:
    “Fundamental Bible-believing people do not have the right to indoctrinate their children in their religious beliefs because we, the state, are preparing them for the year 2000, when America will be part of a one-world global society and their children will not fit in.” –Nebraska State Senator Peter Hoagland, speaking on radio in 1983.
    How do you prepare people for this coming one-world global society?
    “To achieve world government, it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, loyalty to family traditions, national patriotism, and religious dogmas.” – Brock Adams, Director UN Health Organization

    How would one enter this new society?
    “No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a Luciferian Initiation.” David Spangler, Director of Planetary Initiative, United Nations

    The Bible predicted and warned us about this a couple thousand years ago:
    Rev 13:16And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.(666)

    Did you know the technology to do this is here and ready?
    “Is there a number or mark planned for the hand or forehead in a new cashless society? YES, and I have seen the machines that are now ready to put it into operation.” Ralph NaderThis technology is being used in Europe. People are already buying with RFID (radio frequency identification chips) implanted in their hands/arms.

    What is so wrong with this?
    Revelation 14 warns us:9And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 11And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

    This Luciferian initiation, that David Spangler, UN, speaks of could very well be the mark of the beast, the Bible warns us about. And the mark of this man…who will it be? Could he emerge from the following?:

    “We do not want another committee, we have too many already. What we want is a man of sufficient stature to hold the allegiance of all the people and to lift us up out of the economic morass into which we are sinking. Send us such a man, and whether he be God or devil, we will receive him.” -Paul-Henri Spaak,The first president of the United Nations General Assembly, who was also a prime minister of Belgium and one of the early planners of the European Common Market, as well as a secretary-general of NATO.

    “I believe that if the people of this nation fully understood what Congress has done to them over the last 49 years, they would move on Washington; they would not wait for an election….It adds up to a preconceived plan to destroy the economic and social independence of the United States!” –George W. Malone, U.S. Senator (Nevada), speaking before Congress in1957.

    “Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.” – Woodrow Wilson, 28th President of the United States.

    The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it” ~ Albert Einstein

  2. Gee, Albert, how many people do you think will read a post as long as yours…no offense, but many of us get headaches from blocks of text like this one…Mercy!
