Let me go ahead and just say what i am thinking to possibly help some people to understand the popularity of truth....the dan brown book is not that great because of the author dears...there are far better writers about...what is exceptional is that this subjects time has come...just as it is stated in the novel based on Spiritual christian Truths...you see it is not Dan who is being really applauded here, it is the subject
he has chosen to write about, which is the ancient tradition
of the search for the holy grail and the arc of the covenant.
If you think that there is some evil force of magic surrounding the story book, that will reach out and touch you with its angry claws, you are being far too superstitious which is what is wrong with religious teachings. Most all religious text are based on the wishes of the human and this is why they fail.
The bible was written by man~ honey about a man of GOD as we all are... and with the political structure of those times in mind, in particular ... believe me! The Bible was meant for the times...and it is lovely but it is far too mis-understood today.
Even the BIBLES vast popularity could not have been expected by those who wrote their words and pressed ancient chiseled instrument to stone tablet. :?
What the world needs is to stop the mass hypnosis
that has been prompted by the Bible less studied followers who blindly follow like the flock of sheep follow the Shepard....
My personal JESUS moved forward with the times, and embraces all people
regardless of their lack of feeling for their human kin
based upon out-dated thinking.
We need new mythologies
that are, as good as, the old ones... and if no one is ever going to educate themselves in religeons and take the pen up as a sword against the poverty of the closed mind well, then let the demons of ignorance have you.
Jesus is sick and tired of everyones lack of imagination and I know this because HE AND ME...we are buddys...we talk all the time.
I talk to ALL the GODS... you see I love and believe in EVERY ONE OF THEM....we must bless them into being real, as co-creators in our very own lives, as Jesus told us to do before anyone ever wrote anything it is written on our hearts by our conciousness.
The Gnostic teachings are written on in hundreds of books....Dan just added a few new words to a very very old written work. the man got his information elsewhere. Indiana Jones is a movie about the arc as well and no one thinks the writer of this movie is the anti-crist....they think that I am.
