    The old testament said not to add or delete anything from it. We are guilty of both.

    pray for forgiveness of all that you do that is not pleasing to God.


    “I Want To Conquer The World”

    Hey Brother Christian with your high and might errand,
    Your actions speak so loud, I can’t hear a word you’re saying.
    Hey Sister Bleeding Heart with all of your compassion,
    Your labors soothe the hurt but can’t assuage temptation.
    Hey man of science with your perfect rules of measure,
    Can you improve this place with the data that you gather?
    Hey Mother Mercy can your loins bear fruit forever?
    Is your fecundity a trammel or a treasure?
    And I want to conquer the world,
    Give all the idiots a brand new religion,
    Put an end to poverty, uncleanliness and toil,
    Promote equality in all my decisions
    With a quick wink of the eye
    And a “God you must be joking!”
    Hey Mr. Diplomat with your worldly aspirations,
    Did you see the children cry when you left them at the station?
    Hey moral soldier you’ve got righteous proclamation,
    And precious tomes to fuel your pulpy conflagrations.
    And I want to conquer the world,
    Give all the idiots a brand new religion,
    Put an end to poverty, uncleanliness and toil,
    Promote equality in all of my decisions
    I want to conquer the world,
    Expose the culprits and feed them to the children,
    I’ll do away with air pollution and then all save the whales,
    We’ll have peace on earth and global communion.
    I want to conquer the world!

    dan browns the da vinci code is a legend [imaginatory story ]and doesnt carry any mileage.
    he is under illusions and unable to follow the word of god.
    what does alpha omega reveal?
    some historic information from the vatican only reveals about the catholic church and significance to mother mary.
    genesis 1st chapter 1st verse is the answer.to dan brown
    john 1st chapter 1st verse is the answer.to dan brown
    nobody is supposed to add or delete any word from the bible.
    revelations 1st chapter reveals key to eternal life is to repent and to born again.

  • Graham says:

    Dan Brown has undoubtedly made a fortune from this book,Film rights an’ all.But I think it rather odd that the authors of Holly Blood & Holy Grail tried to take him to court, for using their theory.Firstly considering they’ve re-issued their book, expect it’s doing well.And secondly since W.E.Phipps wrote a book called WAS JESUS MARRIED? in 1970.

  • Sacrifice says:

    Wes, John is not questioning the existance of Jesus… he is questioning the Bibles sources of scripture and not to mention scriptures that have never been entered becuase they were destroyed by fearful men. Though most scripture is taken out of context, and that’s a litteral spoken term.

  • Deebee says:

    You said it very well indeed Vince…at the end of the day what is important is whether or not we believe that Jesus Christ really was who he said he was, that he was indeed the Son of God and God Himself!That’s why the Jews wanted Him crucified because He claimed equality with God….and they would not believe that. We have the same choice today…to believe? or not to believe? that is the question!

    If you are interested in discussing more about the person of Jesus Christ and who He was, come to thelife chat room Monday to Friday at 12:30 pm eastern…..Today’s topic was the Importance of Jesus and tomorrow we will be chatting about The Life of Jesus.

  • Vince says:

    I geuss what I find both inspiring and distressing about all this is…

    (A) How wonderful it is to see so many be catapulted into researching history (there are people who are doing this for the first time in their lives!) I feel it would be great if more books and movies caused this type of reaction.

    (B) How so many are dependent on facts instead of faith. Mind instead of Spirit

    So many intelligent, powerful men have been transformed by the Bible and in turn have transformed the world. All this point/counterpoint really has to do with is those who truly believe and those who don’t. There are those believers who are biblical scholars and know the bibles history inside and out and still choose to believe in Jesus’ divinity. This is the only way (in having faith is his divinity) that one can truly be transformed. There is power there that no historical facts can take away. Then there are those who are passionate about biblical history who can teach us so much, but they choose to stay rooted in and inspired by only the facts.

    At the end of the day Dan Brown’s “Fact page” is full of holes. I wished he left it out. If he had faith in his work, which he himself keeps saying is fiction, he could have caused less controversy by skipping the fact page (unless that’s what he wanted). The book was great on its own. (The movie falls far short of it). It’s OK to question, it’s OK to wonder. But when it comes to faith you’re either fully there or not. Yes, it gets shaky sometimes, but there isn’t a person on this planet, no matter how intelligent they are, who can tell us what we should believe or not believe. They cannot define faith for us, because faith can only be defined by the spirit.

    Johnny – I think the evidence you are looking for can be found here – http://www.leaderu.com/offices/billcraig/docs/rediscover2.html


  • Johnny Redd says:

    Where is the evidence that Jesus was resurrected from the dead? Thousands of people were crucified on the cross and undoubtedly many survived days afterward including Jesus. Jesus was a man—-just a man with physical, social, psychological, and moral needs like anyone else. In all probability, he married Mary Magdalene—-a deciple—-a woman who washed his feet, tended to his wounds, nursed him back to health and probably married the man and had kids. This of course supports the idea espoused for centuries that Kings and Queens ruled by divine right. What better right than be descended from the most faithful of all persons. Jesus’ family followed a script meticulously outlined in the old testament—for which they were intensely privy. Where I ask everyone, where can be found the empirical evidence supporting any of these claims? Well of course most religious people will say the Bible. If one uses a book for evidence, then what are we to do with all the testaments kicked out—among these the Gospel of Nicodemus. No book of any kind can be used for evidence for anything.

    We are chatting in theLife chat room tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. Eastern. Come and find out more about who Jesus is as we discuss “The Life of Jesus”. http://www.thelife.com/thelife_chat/5.html&channel=thelife

  • Deebee says:

    That is probably one of my most favorite C.S.Lewis quotes…and it really does demand a response from us.The best part of this is that C.S.Lewis was an atheist who wanted to prove that Christianity was not anything that could be historically correct and in the process, came to this point in his life, that Jesus really was who He said He was. So to the other visitors on this blog, what do you think about this argument?

    If you want to talk about it, why not come to our chat room on http://www.thelife.com at 12:30 pm eastern to investigate spirituality?

  • Michael King says:

    C.S.Lewis said
    “I am trying here to prevent anyone from saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him:(“I am ready to except Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept His claim to be God.”) That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic – on a level with a man who says he is a poached egg – or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is , the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse…But let us not come up with any paronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intent to.”

  • laursgalores says:

    Can you explain more about the May 26th?

  • Ed Bartels says:

    I definitely do not think its true,theres NO evidence in the Bible,and this is crap and should be flushed.

  • Gary J Sibio says:

    P.T. Barnum was right.

  • Rubberdog says:

    awakening the Roses…Our White Bride from Heaven returns with the
    New Dawn of Flowers.

    The Holy Grail ‘neath
    ancient Roslin waits.The
    Blade and Chalice guarding
    o’er her gates. Adorned
    in masters loving art, she l
    ies. She rests at last
    beneath the starry skies.

    On the 26th May 2006 and into the new moon the first Gate of Dreams and
    Abundance is opening, the Mayan “Breakthrough Celebrations” are beginning…
    We have recovered her “Cyrstal Sphere” and the “Blue Starseed of Enlightnment” to
