"The Passion of Christ" and "The Da Vinci Code"

Tim Challies has written a very insightful and much needed article on the "evangelical hyprocrisy" of those who dared not critique the Passion film and yet are now decrying The Da Vinci Code movie.

I had been wondering if anyone else noticed this. Evangelicals see people outside the church twisting and profaning the Gospel, but when it comes to those inside the "church" who do similar things, it is a different story. Then, we often hear, "They say they love Jesus" or "He just has a different view on that doctrine than you" or "No one is perfect!"

If we are going to rightfully defend the Gospel against things like the Da Vinci Code, secularism, and the gay agenda, we also should be willing (and prepared) to defend the gospel against things like Roman Catholicism, the New Perspective on Paul, the emergent church movement, and easy believism.

I agree that the church should be ready to defend the truth of the Gospel of Christ. I just hope that when they do so, they do it in a manner of love and grace; proclaiming the truth, not destroying those who are wrong.
