Not sure if this is the place to post this. If it is not, then please move it to the appropriate place. Or delete the subject if the adimistrators to not think it suitable. As I have said in my introduction, I have joined an Islamic forum on the internet with the ultimate purpose of witnessing to them with the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying that some way have their eyes opened to the salvation of God. However, if you wish to know more about me then please read my intro. Now, concerning the book The da Vinci code. Some members of this Islamic forum have read the book and have expressed interest in it. Basically of course because it mentions that Jesus didn't die on the cross, but that he married Mary Magdelene. Which is what Muslims themselves believe. But if course the wider story is that in recent years there has been a revival of interest in the so called Gnostic gospels. A few years ago there was another book published called Stigmata. Which also dealt with the theme of Jesus being only a man and nothing more. The concern is that these books that are being published today (as novels) are professing to declare some "new found" truth from "recently discovered" ancient scrolls which reveal who Jesus really was and that somehow we have all been duped by the church right down through the centuries to this present time. The error in that of course is that not only were these "new found" proofs found way back in the 40's and 50's. But that what they state is not new at all. We have known these these things for centuries, quite simply because the Gnostics were prolific writers. Now the question I would like to ask members here is, has anyone read The da Vinci Code? If so what do you have to say about it? And how would you handle someone who has come to believe its contents as fact?
