I’m going to see the Da Vinci Code and I’ve just recently bought the book. Why? Why would a Christian—a pastor even—do such a thing? Why would I support such a demonically inspired enterprise? Because I want to be informed about what the book says so I can defend my faith with unbelievers. It’s that salt and light thing, y’know?
I bought the book at Costco for about four bucks. Dan Brown won’t see too much profit from my purchase. And I plan on seeing the movie after the initial two weeks of its debut so the grosses won’t be inflated by my patronage of the movie. Also, I will go to the matinee and bring a coupon. Again, to minimize Dan Brown’s profit points.
I will not protest and add fuel to the media fire. I will not boycott and be ignorant of the controversy. I will give out million dollar bills when I talk to movie-goers and ask if they will go to Heaven or Hell when they die.
