Da vinci's code

  1. You should see the amount of people carrying this Da Vinci code book ,written by Dan Brown, reading it on the trains and on the bus! At first, I thought it was just another good book I had to read but then I started hearing stuff about the book. I heard it was a book that blasphemed Jesus and portrayed him as a liar. So, as a good Christian, I decided that I was not going to read it because number 1. It was anti-Christian and
    2. It might make me question my beliefs.
    I also decided I was going to write about it on this blog, to try and discourage people from reading or watching it. But I later discovered, through an article from the outflow magazine by Jesus house, that the book didn't actually portray Jesus in a bad light. It said Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene and they had children, it didn't say they had an affair or they had children out of wedlock. Rather it shows the catholic church in a bad light. According to the book, the catholic church is guilty of hiding "the true Jesus" from us, it claims that the Catholics concealed this secret to undermine the role of women in the church. But how do we know the Jesus portrayed in the book is indeed true?
    Well, that's left for you to decide. Really, the only people who should be worried are the heads of the catholic church, because the book (if right) means they have been lying to the world and believe me they are worried because they have called a fast till death as a protest for the movie not to be released. This leaves me wondering what are they really fighting for? Are they really hiding something?Because the book doesn,t really pose a threat to Christianity,the main thing is that neither theory denies that he(Jesus) died to save us and that is what really matters. Jesus being married with kids doesn't make his death less of a sacrifice or his life less holy. Whichever way, are you going to believe a fiction based novel written by one guy like that called Dan brown, who probably just thought writing this sort of story will bring him loads of money or a 2,000 year old story proven to be true and supported by the scriptures?

What am I doing here!

Ok, I have to admit I'm getting the jitters. I've been going through most of the blogs and it's scary.Most of the blogs I've seen are written by people in their 2o's and 30's talking about work, men and just generally older peoples stuff. Plus my writing skills are just developing (although it has made me to start thinking "maybe I should become a journalist").This is making me think "is it just me or am I just totally inappropriate for this blogging stuff?" Don't get me wrong I'm not going to stop instead I'm more challenged to make it work but I'm thinking who am I going to make it work for. I mean, if I post really intersting stuff everyday and there is no audience, what's the use! In short, am I sure somebody is reading this!
Now, I don't want to sound too whiny(who are you kidding?),I know I might come across as a confused teenager but hey! can you blame me. I'm still trying to figure out who I am in this ever changing world. I just hope there is a teenage audience in blogosphere or infact any one who can relate to the things i'm going to be writing if not...... let's not go there yet.For now,I'll just keeping writing in as good and as frequently as I can.
