Be Prepared for Challenges Based on the Da Vinci Code Movie

Good morning, Happy Souls!

Bill Keller wrote a devotional today that I
recommend to you. He has given me permission to
copy his e-mails, and I'm sure he would be happy if
you would share this with people you know as well.

Many non-Christians will take this fictional movie and
assume that it has some basis in fact. If you testify
about your belief in Jesus, you can expect many questions
after people see the movie.

This is probably a great opportunity to share the real
Gospel with non-believers. So take a few minutes to
prepare yourself now.

Please read on.


(2 Peter 2:1-3, 1 John 2:21, Titus 1:14, 2 Timothy 4:4,
Romans 1:25, John 17:17) *READ EVERY VERSE SLOWLY AND

BE RELEASED. Due to the incredible popularity of the
book, despite the protests and boycotts of Christian
groups it will do HUGE box office numbers around the
world. Here is why. People who live their lives in
rebellion to God and the Truth of His Word are always
looking for something to justify their rejection of
God, the Bible, and Jesus Christ. Blasphemous fictional
garbage like "The Da Vinci Code" gives them the false
sense of secuirty they yearn for to continue living in
rebellion to the Truth.

The problem with books and movies like "The Da Vinci
Code" is that it causes the faithful to doubt and is
leading people's eternal souls into everlasting damnation.
The lies proffered in works of fiction like this book and
movie cause those who know the Lord but are Biblically
illiterate to doubt the truth of the Gospel. Sadly, those
who have rejected the Lord already die in their sin having
been emboldened in their rejection of God's love and the
hope of Christ by the lies told in blasphemous works like

Back in November of 2003, before anyone in the Christian
community figured out how to ride the coat tails of the
success of this fictional garbage by creating anti-Da
Vinci code books and tapes, I exposed (for free) this
blasphemous work of fiction and armed the Liveprayer
family with all they needed to refute those who ignorantly
believed the stories proffered by author Dan Brown.
Below is that Devotional for you to read again and pass
on to everyone you know. In the end, there is really only
one thing you need to know about "The Da Vinci Code"....
it is fiction! It is no different than Harry Potter or
Alice in Wonderland! IT IS FICTION!

"They exchanged the truth of God for a lie..."
(Romans 1:25)

( Daily Devotional from November 5, 2003 )

Exchanging the truth for a lie. One of the hottest books
out today is a book called, "The Da Vinci Code" by Dan
Brown. Due to the controversy surrounding this book, I
bought it over the weekend and read it. Let me point out
what is probably the most important fact of all about
this book. It is not found in the pages of the book, but
on the cover. In big gold letters on the cover is the
name of the book, and next to it, in very small white
letters are two words, A NOVEL! Before we go any further,
please understand that this book is A NOVEL, it is

The problem with this book, and the reason I am dealing
with it today, is because of its controversial content
regarding the truth of the Bible and the life of Jesus
Christ. The author, Dan Brown, does not hold any
theological degrees, and he was an English teacher before
he began writing books. There is no information available
about his personal theological beliefs, and repeated calls
to his office asking that question were never returned.

In this FICTIONAL work, the author has Emperor Constantine
as the one who decided on the content of the Bible for
purely political reasons. In this FICTIONAL work, the
author has Jesus married to Mary Magdalene and they have
a child.

Now, let's deal with FACTS, NOT FICTION. The FACT is,
Constantine had nothing to do with the content of the Bible.
By 300 B.C. at the latest, all of the Old Testament books
had been written, collected, revered, and recognized as
official, canonical books. Many believe that the prophet
Ezra led the first recognition counsel. During the Third
Council of Carthage, held in 397 A.D. the 27 books of the
New Testament were declared canonical. It must be
understood that the Bible is NOT an authorized collection
of books, but rather a collection of authorized books.
The 27 New Testament books were not inspired because the
Carthage Council proclaimed them to be, but rather the
Council proclaimed them to be such because they were
already inspired! There are MANY great books on the
inspiration and inerrancy of the Bible at your local
Christian bookstore, and I suggest that ALL Christians
make the time to read such books so you never doubt that
the Bible is exactly what it claims of itself, GOD'S

Another FACT is, Jesus was NEVER MARRIED! Mary Magdalene
was NOT His wife. They did NOT have a child together.
The really sad thing is that I even have to expose such
blasphemy. As I have shared with you, the largest
percentage of two full generations in this nation do not
go to church and are NOT Christians, this is NOT A
CHRISTIAN NATION! That is why a book like this is so
dangerous. People who read it, who are Biblically
illiterate, think this work of FICTION is actually fact!

(Note: The reason Jesus was never married and never had
children is simple. Jesus only had one mission in this
life and that was to die. Not to get married, not to
father children, but to die as the one-time perfect
sacrifice for the sins of the world. Those who proffer
he was married, had children, do so in sheer ignorance
and a total lack of understanding of Christ's mission in

Even worse, you have the major television networks that
are taking this work of FICTION and proffering its
contents as possible historical fact! This is not only
journalistic malpractice, it can only be a conscious and
orchestrated attack on the truth of God's Word by people
that do not hold the Bible to be true. The ABC Special
on this issue Monday night was not only blasphemous and
an abomination to God, but a tool satan will use to take
people of no faith and make them believe the lie to be
the truth. No doubt all the other broadcast networks will
pick up on this topic and also proffer the content of this
work of FICTION as fact, and the general public will hear
it enough times from enough different sources to believe
the lie to be the truth.

This is the very reason I am so passionate about the
television program I do 5 nights a week and why I do it
on COMMERCIAL television networks. This is why I am
working daily on expanding the program into new markets.

I love you and care about you so much. I have told you
often that for the person who rejects God, who has
rejected Christ in their life, and who live in rebellion
to the truth of God's Word, they MUST reject the Bible
since it is the very book that condemns them. Taking a
book of FICTION like "The Da Vinci Code," and proffering
that fictional story as historical fact is exactly the
kind of thing a non-believer will do to try and discredit
God's Word and thus justify their rejection of its truth.
Of course, the mainstream media is only too happy to
participate in this process of taking the lie, and making
people accept it as the truth.

I will pray for you today. If you do not understand yet
that there is a major battle going on, WAKE UP! The
Bible clearly tells us that our battle is not of flesh
and blood, but a spiritual one. It is "against
principalities, against powers, against the rulers of
the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness
in high places." The people of God, who possess the only
real truth there is, must become bolder to take that
truth to this lost and hurting world we live in. We must
speak out! We cannot, and we MUST NOT sit back and watch
the enemy exchange the Truth for a lie!!!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller
