Hollywood attacks on Bible Truth

Hollywood has been an effective tool to put false narratives into the Public sphere for years.

Since most people do not read the Bible, most people absorb these false stories as Gospel.

[Pun intended]


Let's debunk a few.

May God Bless all who contribute here.

Good Manners and civil discourse only please, hopefully We can learn something new.



"The Real Story of the Council of Nicea"

June 5, 2006 Issue

John D. Hagen, Jr.

"The Da Vinci Code is a systematic attack on the divinity of Jesus Christ. The book’s author, Dan Brown, pursues his quarry with an obsessiveness that overrides good storytelling technique. And Brown’s characters (supposedly in mortal danger, always just one step ahead of being captured) continually take time out to utter rambling sermons and pedantic lectures. Brown’s lectures incorporate all sorts of bizarre counterfactual propositions. The most egregious center around the Roman emperor Constantine. Brown claims that Constantine invented Jesus’ divinity and imposed it through a relatively close vote at the Council of Nicea, which was convened in 325 A.D.

This is preposterous. The doctrine adopted at Nicea had been discussed since the time of the apostles, and the relatively close vote was 316 to 2! But tens of millions of people have read Dan Brown’s version of the matter including millions who recite the Nicene Creed every Sunday morning. And, sadly, millions more will absorb it in movie theaters in the weeks ahead. As Hollywood’s recension of The Da Vinci Code descends on us, we should recall the authentic story of the Nicene Creed."
