God Uses Means

I firmly believe that throughout the history of the Church God uses heresy to strengthen her. The Church would not have firmly established the doctrine of the deity of Christ had it not been for her enemies contradicting it. The early councils and creeds were the defenses of attacks on our most fundamental doctrines.

Thus, I believe The Da Vinci Code is great. It gets people talking about our most sacred beliefs at the water cooler, on the train, at Starbucks. It's like a revival but lacking the Holy Spirit. We should all jump on this opportunity to proclaim Christ to all those who have him on their minds. We shouldn't be afraid of the Code. The Kingdom is indestructable.

Go see the movie. Read the book. And learn why it is not true, for crying out loud. The Kingdom is indestructible.
