Kostenberger on The Da Vinci Code

"The Da Vinci Code will come and go (though first there will be the movie with Tom Hanks and millions more people being treated to the conspiracy theory of Jesus’ marriage with Mary Magdalene), but this liberal “myth of Christian origins” will persist. It will persist because it is part of this esoteric blend of New Age spirituality, neo-Gnosticism, feminist scholarship, an anti-supernaturalist, critical, post-Enlightenment stance toward Christianity, and a postmodern, subjectivist approach to history and truth."

--How do these people get employed? Whoever said Jesus wasn't concerned with doctrine/truth, only concerned about orphans and widows...well, I think not. There is a direct attack on what is supposed to be true.

Whatever one's feelings are about the mistakes of the Church in general--don't let emotion rule I.Q. on this one. The rational mind, left unchecked, is capable of great irrationalities...mental chaos that can flip-flop any foundation once seen as sacred.

Imagine a study that says orphans are supposed to have no rights because of genetic predisposition. If you have an agenda against orphans, you could try to prove anything.

Proper theology MUST govern epistemology...emphasis on proper.
