Author Dan Brown Discusses His Loss of Faith as a Child
Are you religious?

I was raised Episcopalian, and I was very religious as a kid. Then, in eighth or ninth grade, I studied astronomy, cosmology, and the origins of the universe. I remember saying to a minister, "I don't get it. I read a book that said there was an explosion known as the Big Bang, but here it says God created heaven and Earth and the animals in seven days. Which is right?" Unfortunately, the response I got was, "Nice boys don't ask that question." A light went off, and I said, "The Bible doesn't make sense. Science makes much more sense to me." And I just gravitated away from religion. ...

First of all, Episcopalian, q.v., Against Romish Anglicanism is not Christian. I think Spurgeon was somewhat wrong in this article in implying the Anglican group was ever Christian.

No, John, Dan is just as sane as any who attend the Romish Church, He is just sinful like everyone and unsaved like many. It should be noted there seems to be many who,

Luke 8
11 "Now the parable is this: the seed is the word of God.
12 "And those beside the road are those who have heard; then the devil comes and takes away the word from their heart, so that they may not believe and be saved.
13 "And those on the rocky soil are those who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no firm root; they believe for a while, and in time of temptation fall away.
14 "And the seed which fell among the thorns, these are the ones who have heard, and as they go on their way they are choked with worries and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to maturity.---NASB.

Dan Brown is like many, even if he actually did have the Word delivered to him.

Brown is insane and psychotic and is utterly incapable of logical and analytical thinking to have become an atheist.

Regretfully, his faith was bound up with his understanding of this generation's cosmology. A perpetually sandy foundation.

The problem with the Episcopalian Church is that its leadership is knows no more about Christianity than its laity does. It is a false church.

Yes, Barry that is true you can see by Exploring the Limitations of the Scientific Method that it can't answer the important questions of life. Witnesses of the Gospel

The problem with modernists et al. is not "intellectual assent" as such, but assent to lies (i.e., that the Resurrection is an exemplary myth, that Jesus's death is an archaic barbarism that did not really atone for the sins of the elect, that meritorious works contribute to salvation, that "infinite passion" saves, etc).

Assent is simply a synonym for agreement or belief; you cannot agree with something you don't believe, & you cannot be condemned for believing the Biblical Gospel (John 3:18). Undoubtedly there many who claim to believe the Gospel, but are liars.

It is the Catholic Church that is responsible for the unbiblical fiction that faith consists of Noticias, Assensus, and Fiducias.

I really enjoy Dan Brown's books. They are interesting stories. I too enjoyed astronomy, and the sciences in school. However, my teachers, being in a rural setting, believed in God. I went to church with several of them on Sundays. For anyone to think that it could all be chance, is much more of a senario I am unable to believe. Christianity is much more believeable. Using science, when you get to the root of it, it's just chance. I'll stick with my blind faith.

"I was raised Episcopalian"

Now that speaks volumes!!!

The alternative to true faith is intellectual assent - like the Liberals and Roman Catholics have.

Those who do not receive true faith simply make human judgments about faith and never see the light.

Many even in real churches do not receive faith, but are quite convinced they have.

As Peter explains.....
2 "And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of."

'Unfortunately, the response I got (from my pastor) was, "Nice boys don't ask that question." A light went off, and I said, "The Bible doesn't make sense. Science makes much more sense to me." And I just gravitated away from religion. ...'.

Sounds like God was testing young Dan to see if he'd be diligent enought to seek out a more learned pastor or just give up and follow his own instincts, which so many in the fallen-away-from-faith crowd seem to do (having read many of their testimonies available on the web).

As a former reprobate myself I would often decide against a Godly concpet in favor of a worldy one, but would then "test" (unfaily) the Godly concept just to put it (and my CONSCIENCE!) to rest, and then continue to live in my sin--without being bothered by guilt that that sin would normally cause.

A very neat, common, and deceitful trick used by many an unsaved person to deny God.
