Churches strike back at 'Da Vinci'
FREMONT — Evangelical leaders derided "The Da Vinci Code" as part of "a war against historical Christianity" in a program simulcast Sunday in churches across North America, including the Thornton Avenue Baptist Church.

The 90-minute broadcast, produced by the evangelical Church Communication Network, took aim at the Gnostic gospels, quoted in the novel to argue that Jesus had fathered a child with Mary Magdalene and that the early church conspired, motivated in part by sexism, to hide the truth.

The account's veracity, said Erwin Lutzer, co-author of a book critical of "The Da Vinci Code," is "right up there with an Elvis sighting."

Though "The Da Vinci Code" is sold as fiction, simulcast host Mark Mittelberg said the book, and now the movie, has shaken the faith of many Christians. ...

I think you have made a very astute observation. From what I have seen, there are very few preachers who in their preaching syllabus aim at providing keys to their congregations so that they can mine the Bible for themselves. They seem to think that their job is to stir the people once or twice a week, whereas the job of real and genuine feeding requires a great deal more.

From the comments so far, I would guess that the people of God are being starved

And sorry Jim, I'm with Neil on IHCC's dispensationalism.

Jim, since IHCC is Dispensational & therefore in error, I'll pass on that, thanks! Everyone here says they teach the Word, but they get very different doctrines out of it.

I'm also wary of celebrity pastors (you can tell by the prominent photos), although that's common these days. The fact that churches rely on such shows that there is a dearth of serious theological instruction taking place at churches. Theology is not just for seminaries & paid ministers. Could it be a form of job-protection?

Why see a movie that talks trash about Jesus? People should stoned to death for this. It's blasphemy. Wouldn't the muslims have stoned those that ridicule their god? OR what about in the Bible times, wouldn't the Jews nash their teeth and rent their clothes if God was made fun of? Nevermind...I guess Christians these days aren't as fearful of God as they used to be or as the Jews were once. If so...The Davinci Code would have never made it the theatre...Where was Rick Warren and Billy Graham in all this? What did Joel Osteen say about it? What about TBN? What has our leaders say about this movie? Has Benny Hinn done anything about it? The Copelands? nobody except the evangelicals for real?

You know why it shakes the faith and makes the faithful, more faithless? Cuz we are weak in our standing...The Hispanics organized and stood for their rights...The Muslims stood up against a stupid cartoon. What did we do? We did the body of Christ do? If there was a protest and a massive one, I would have stood up too. What has happened to the body of Christ? Has Satan really hurt us and we are seeing it? OR are we really obeying God and being quiet..."be still, thy soul". Vengence is mine saith the LORD...

Neil, you should visit www.ihcc.org Gil systematically teaches the Word! I think there are over 300 sermons you can listen to on sermon Audio, besides listening to sermons live at 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Central Time sundays by going to the above website.

Ah yes, now I see.
"Weak and Ineffectual". That would be a polite way of describing the majority of English vicars in the Church of England today.

milquetoast vicar?

Do you mean: "More tea, vicar?"

There's also the milquetoast vicar, a stock character of English fiction.

How many churches teach systematic theology to their congregations (I mean among those that actually believe systematic theology exists)?

Hello Disciple,

I rather think that the devil has his evil strategies worked out to perfection. I also think that his purposes are being worked out especially in the media. There are very clever subtleties within TV and Radio programs (especially the wildlife and nature programs) and within the everyday novel. It is noticeable that novels with a religious background are getting more and more popular. See "Brother Cadfael" and "Sister Fidelma" mystery novels.

And look at the devastation caused by Darwin. Currently the church generally is at a low ebb. Many would not be able to counter these attacks of Satan because of a lack of teaching.

However, I thank the Lord Jesus that he shall lose none of his.

When I went to the website to read the entire article, I got a message stating, "The content item you have requested is no longer available"!!

Quote: "...simulcast host Mark Mittelberg said the book, and now the movie, has shaken the faith of many Christians"

Really?!

I wonder what sort of Christians he had in mind? and what sort of Christians he mixes with?

Has anyone else met a Christian whose faith has been shaken by Brown's fictional book ?
