The Da Vinci Code

The Da Vinci Code is a bestseller. Tens of millions of readers read and enjoyed the book.
It deals with an alleged plot by the Catholic church to cover up the truth about Jesus Christ's life. Given the religious sensitivity of the topic, it was not a surprise to hear Vatican officials protest about the book's allegations.
However, the book itself is classified as a "fiction" meaning it does not pretend to be a history textbook. More controversial are the explanations given by Dan Brown when he is asked what is accurate in the book.

The problem with books of fiction is that they are essentially mixing facts and fictions and that's why they are so entertaining. This may be the real problem: Parts of the history of the Catholic Church would rather be forgotten than discussed openly in the aftermath of the "Da Vinci Code" popularity.

What seems to be so embarassing for some christian communities all over the world is not that there is another book of fiction dealing with christian beliefs, it is the fact that the book is extremely populare and that the forthcoming movie may well be extremely successful.
In countries with a long tradition of freedom of speech, christian organizations merely advise people to boycott the movie. However, in other countries, christian groups have successfully lobbied for either a full or a partial censorship of the movie.

Hello Sailom and all,

There's a bit more to the story of the Vatican's reaction than most are yet aware of. Read my analysis below to understand what they truly fear.

Remember, "I come as a thief..." ?

It's not the DaVinci Code or Gospel of Judas per se, but the fact that people have been motivated to seek out the unequivocal truth about an age of deception, exactly when they expect me to appear. The Gospel of Judas and DaVinci Code controversies are allowing people to take new stock of the Vatican/Papacy and the religions it has spawned. It also shines a bright spotlight on the undeniable symbolic content of these texts and traditions and that path leads to the exposure of ages-old religious deceptions. Seek to understand the symbolic significance of my name (Seven Star Hand) and you will have proof beyond disproof that Christians have long been duped by the great deceivers I warned humanity about over the millennia.

It is quite a joke that the Vatican and Catholic Church have the gall to accuse the author of a novel of attacking their fantasies and dogma. Remember that this is the same organization that manufactured fake relics and miracles for many centuries. This is the same group that massacred and tortured people for seeking the truth and having a mind of their own. This is the same group of deluded deceivers that makes more noise about a fictional book and movie than about child raping priests, aids, famine, or even the Holocaust! At what point does the Vatican's behavior go from the absurd to simply purely evil?

It is undeniable the New Testament is framed by symbolism and allegory. The same is evidenced in the Dead Sea Scrolls, Gnostic texts, biblical apocrypha, and other related texts. All ancient religious, mystical, and wisdom texts have been shrouded in mystery for millennia for one primary reason: The ability to understand their widely evidenced symbology was lost in antiquity. How do we finally solve these ages-old mysteries? To recast an often-used political adage: It’s [the] symbology, stupid!

It's amazing the Vatican still tries to insist the Gospels are literal truth. It is beyond obvious they are replete with ancient Hebrew symbology. Every miracle purported for Jesus has multiple direct symbolic parallels in the Old Testament, Apocalypse, Dead Sea Scrolls, and other symbolic narratives and traditions.

Likewise, the following Washington Post article ( The Book of Bart) describes how many changes and embellishments were made to these texts over the centuries, unequivocally demonstrating they are not original, infallible, or truthful.

What then is the purpose of "faith" but to keep good people from seeking to understand truth and wisdom? It's no wonder the Vatican fears the truth more than anything else. Now comes justice, hot on its heels... (symbolism...)

Revelations from the Apocalypse

Here is Wisdom!!

As a followup to your blog title, I invite you to study and contemplate the Doctrine of Two Spirits on my Home Page and book cover. These religions grew out of a combination of an ancient failure to understand and appreciate the full import and value of wisdom coupled with the efforts of greedy scoundrels to take advantage of the ignorant by confounding and recasting wisdom into hero worship and religion. Now comes the "time" that ancient wisdom will be "rediscovered" and religion "destroyed." That is the true focus of the ancient prophecies and the true meaning and import of the word Apocalypse. That is also why the Vatican fears people learning the truth about the symbology in the Bible and elsewhere. It decodes to expose their great evil and deception.

Here is Wisdom...

Peace...

Your comments are very strong-worded. Please supply more evidence.
All religions present their holy scriptures as eternal truth. Finding faults in these scriptures is an easy game for any critical people. Yet you seem to go further than this by describing the Catholic church as 100% evil. Why?
