A world-known religious leader attacks society's obsession with the Da Vinci Codes and the Gospel of Judas

The Archbishop of Canterbury has voiced strong concerns about today's world that is obsessed with the book and the movie the Da Vinci Code which he says encourages people to believe that the Christian faith is a series of conspiracies and cover ups.

The Archbishop, Dr. Rowan Williams, said that there is a tendency to treat biblical text as if they were unconvincing press releases from some official source whose intention is to conceal the real story. The church leader also rejected the recently discovered leather-bound papyrus believed to be the Gospel of Judas as the authentic writing of Judas, a disciple of Jesus, and said it was an effort to keep the world from finding out what really happened.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Society's fascination with bringing secrets to light as portrayed in "the Da Vinci Code" and "the Gospel of Judas" is evidence that we are living in the days of the Return of Jesus Christ, that is according to Bible prophecy.

Ron Brown's fictional novel, The "Da Vinci Code", has sold over 40 million copies and has been made into a Hollywood movie, because our world today has an unquenching appetite for the secret; howbeit, false stories behind the events of history.

The recent discovery of "the Gospel of Judas" is an authentic document, a document dating to the second century, but it was not the disciple of Jesus Christ who wrote "the Gospel of Judas," because right after Judas betrayed Jesus, he went out and hung himself. Both "the Da Vinci Code," which says Jesus Christ married Mary Magdalene and had children by Him and "the Gospel of Judas" are tangible evidence that we are living in the days of the Lord's return to earth.

The Apostle Paul wrote to young Timothy that in the Last Days, men would want to learn but never come to the truth, that's II Timothy 3:7. Paul warned that false teachers would come and try to deceive, II Timothy 3:6; and from this form of godliness that denies the Lord, Paul said to turn away, that's II Timothy 3:5.

The world's obsessions with "The Da Vinci Code" and "the Gospel of Judas" are evidence that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
