I started reading The Da Vinci Code today. The movie is due for release next week and I decided to try and finish reading the book before seeing the movie. Being an avid reader, you might wonder why I am just now beginning this best seller. Basically, it was because of a prejudice and bias that I had picked up from just listening to people talk about it. I thought it was blasphemous and unchristian. It dawned on me that I had let others form my opinion and I usually don’t operate that way. If I want to know about something, I will usually go directly to the source so that I can make up my own mind. We need to have that same mindset about our Christian faith. “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.” 1 Peter 3:15 (NIV) The popularity of this book indicates the desire of people to find spirituality. We must be ready to present the One true answer to their questions.
