The DaVinci Code is Coming

It took the book sellers world by storm and it's about to hit theatres in May. The DaVinci Code will entertain and thrill Americans and people world-wide. What will you think of it? I ask that question for a good reason.

I'm in the process of reading the book and I must remind myself, as should others who have read it or are reading it, that it is fiction. It is classified, advertised and sold as a work of fiction (not true, fantasy, made up stuff). Although it is a fictional work, it's content make people of faith think about a lot of things.

This fantastic story interwoven with nuggets of truth with an unmistakable religious watermark beneath it all may cause some to question their faith. It may cause some to probe for the truth. It also may cause some to doubt or continue in their skepticism. The reactions will be as numerous as there are readers/viewers.

I urge all people of faith to take in the movie and if possible, prepare themselves for what I belive will be the inevitable. People are going to ask questions about Christianity that we should be ready to answer.

So crack open your Bible. Catch up on some history. Separate fact from fantasy and help people come to the knowlege of the truth should you be asked.

Oh yeah, and by the way...enjoy the movie!
