Christians and The DaVinci Code?
By George Barna

There are some indisputable facts in life. Everyone will die. Republicans and Democrats will never get along. Poverty will always plague humanity. And Americans love movies.
    In 2005, adults watched an average of 45 movies. The mean was identical for born again Christians and nominal Christians. And that figure doesn’t even include the movie clips that they were shown while the faithful were in church! Currently, two-thirds of all Protestant churches have big-screen projection capabilities. In congregations that use movie clips for teaching purposes, 77% of congregants contend that those visual media are helpful in their spiritual development. Movies have become the benign educator of choice in our media-happy society.
    Coming in May of this year to a theater near everyone will be the big screen interpretation of the mega-selling novel, The DaVinci Code.  This spellbinding work of fiction has captivated the minds of more than 30 million readers. The forthcoming film, featuring a huge budget and some of the best talent Hollywood has to offer, promises to intrigue audiences while challenging people’s perceptions about the Christian faith.
    The book makes many claims that are at odds with Christian teachings. Author Dan Brown’s engaging conspiracy fantasy has Jesus Christ married to Mary Magdalene and the father of children; the Bible being doctored by church leaders in 325 A.D. in order to control the Roman Empire and oppress women; claims that the idea of Jesus’ divinity was fabricated for political reasons; and asserts the Roman Catholic Church has conspired for centuries to keep the documentation of such religious scandals a secret.
    Many followers of Christ fear that the movie, which will be even more accessible to the public at-large than the book, will distort people’s theological perceptions. This fear is well-founded. Americans already possess an unorthodox profile of religious beliefs, indiscriminately blending biblical and cultural views.

PRC Walk4Life
May 13th at Creve Coeur Park

By Jim Day

    The Pregnancy Resource Center (PRC) is encouraging everyone who values the sanctity of human life to “Put their feet to their Faith” by participating in their annual Walk4Life fundraising event to be held May 13 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Creve Coeur Park in Creve Coeur, MO.
    After the success of the 2005 Walk4Life campaign, they’re ramping up this year’s event in hopes of surpassing last year’s number of participants and amount raised. Last year marked the largest turnout of walkers and funds raised in PRC’s 23 year history. Over 600 sponsored walkers raised approximately $100,000.
    In 2006, the PRC hopes to see 1,000 sponsored walkers each raising $250 or more. (Every walker that raises $250 or more will receive a free special edition Walk4Life t-shirt.) 

PRC Expands Walk Events

    In order to reach their fundraising goal and make the Walk4Life an even more enjoyable and exciting event, they’ve added more events to the Walk and extended the hours. They’ve also announced the addition of their first annual Run4Life. Designed for more active participants, the 6K (non competitive) run will begin at 8:30 a.m. While you can come and walk at any time during the day, PRC is encouraging all that can to come and walk at 10 a.m. The Walk will follow the Run at 10 a.m. What a sight that will be to see 1,000; 1,200; 1,500 or more walkers proclaiming the sanctity of human life by walking together through Creve Coeur Park.
    Walk participants will be able to enjoy musical entertainment from 10 to 2, provided by the Metro Christian Worship Center Praise and Worship Team. PRC has also announced that young walkers and walker want-to-bes will enjoy a greater variety of children’s activities this year sponsored by Southside Hills Assembly of God Church. Food and refreshments will again be served by the culinary wizards of First Evangelical Free Church who have vowed to outdo themselves this year.
