DaVinci a fan of the thinking man?

    Whether one allows for the chance that there may be among us descendents of Christ or not, I’d like to know why the Christian Church is so offended by such a theory. Wouldn’t such great-great-etc grandchildren of God be just the sort of loving and insightful and compassionate individuals this world obviously needs right now? And wouldn’t such a logical, grounded, biological “Second Coming” make it easier for even Darwinians and the most logic and scientifically based thinkers to accept and come to know God?



    What is it about this concept that threatens the church so? Could it be that such people among us would carry more influence and command more respect than a manmade institution and this is why the possibility of their existence can’t be tolerated?



    Thoughts anyone?

    Well, Jesus was supposed to have never married; sex outside of marriage is a sin according to Christian doctrine; and Jesus was supposed to be sinless.

    So apparently there never was a First Coming. [​IMG]

    The premise of The Da Vinci Code is that Jesus was married (to Mary Magdalene) and the royal bloodline was the product of that marriage.

    The Bible doesn't say whether or not Jesus was married, so the assumption has always been that he wasn't. Dan Brown's book attempts to provide a plausible alternative to that assumption.

    Exactly

    You can find anything you want in the bible....
    And most people do.

    The'word of god' is but a bunch of symbols pressed onto dead tree matter.

    Occam ascribes symbols to to the 'symbol minded.'
