The DaVinci Code
Review by Sterling D. Allan
Best selling fiction ever, in just its first year. A definite
must-read that reflects profoundly on what is real. Highlights the divine
feminine. Goes overboard in downplaying Jesus' divinity.
I have but one gripe with this book that was otherwise a fantastic,
enjoyable read and filled with much to think about.
While I agree that the world in general is too patriarchal, and especially
western religions, this book makes the mistake of the pendulum swing,
in overdoing the shift in the opposite direction. The ideal scenario is
a balanced relationship between the role of men and women, both at home, and
in all levels of society.
Here is my response to Brown, who attempts to un-deify Jesus in his
book. If Jesus is un-deified, so is Magdalene, and the whole concept of
the "goddess." You can't have it both ways.
The truth is a balance. Jesus was God in the flesh -- and so was
Magdalene! And so are we (or something like that). That is the
grail! You beat around the bush, but in dethroning Jesus, you also
missed the punch line on Mary -- and the second coming may actually have some
surprises in that regard as well. I've found this truth may times in my
studies of the Alphabetics
Bible Code which I discovered.
For example, word 517 in the Old Testament lexicon is the Hebrew word for
"mother." "517" is a representation of May 17, which
is near Mother's day. Word 517 in the New Testament means
"Invisible," with synonym, "the hidden one." That is
but one of thousands of such code-like hits I've found on the subject.
May 17, 2004 also happens to be the date I commenced this feature page on The
Da Vinci Code. All "coincidences" have meaning.
Thus, when it comes to what Dan Brown does by way of bringing attention to
the forgotten Magdalene, he gets my highest praise. In snubbing
Magdalene and Eve, Western Religion has also oppressed women and their
gifts. As we go back into the garden, so also will the woman be
enthroned in her rightful place as a yin-yang match for man, not lesser, not
weaker, not inferior -- but equal, as in synergistic.
Dan's novel does us all a favor by stirring up questions, the quest for the
answers of which will change humanity for the better.

An Interesting LDS Scripture
Considering the thesis of Dan's book (Jesus had offspring . . .)
Doctrine and Covenants 86:8-10
"Therefore, thus saith the Lord unto you, with whom the priesthood
hath continued through the lineage of your fathers -- for ye are lawful heirs,
according to the flesh, and have been hid from the world with Christ in God --
therefore your life and the priesthood have remained, and must needs remain
through you and your lineage until the restoration of all things spoken by the
mouths of all the holy prophets since the world began."
Of course there will those who adamantly disagree
with such a radical book. Read it and decide for yourself.

Books About The Da Vinci Code
Quite humorous how many entire books there are to
debunk Dan's book. Must have hit a nerve!
News > Da Vinci Code - latest stories, mostly show Christians in a
furor. But let's not throw out the baby with the bathwater. Dan
goes to far, but he makes some excellent points.|
