The Da Vinci Code
A Cunning Return to Heathenist Feminism
The more we read The Da Vinic Code by Dan Brown the more we increasingly discover his main goal behind his extensive study on Gnostic history, writings and papyrus.
It is a well known fact that Gnosticism is intimately connected with heathenist philosophy and infiltrated Christianity with such philosophies. Heathen philosophy include many absurd concepts on worlds, angels, and deity dualism. Heathens expressed dualism in believing in a god for good and another for evil. They further expressed it in believing in the existence of a male god and a female goddess, the possibility for marriage among gods, and their producing offsprings.
In heathen Hinduism the male dancing God of creation and destruction called Shiva marries the ascetic nun goddess Parvati from whom he gives birth to his second son Ganisha. Shiva burned the head of his son, then took the head of the elephant of Indra to replace his son’s head. Thus Ganisha’s body is the body of a man while his head is the head of an elephant. Shiva then makes Ganisha the god of wisdom and luck, in order to please his wife Parvati.
In Egyptian heathenism we have Osiris and Isis. The male god Osiris marries the female goddess Isis the queen of heaven, who gives birth to Horus, whose head is the head of a hawk while his body is either the body of a hawk or of a man.
True theology does not have masculine or feminine, but the devil emphasizes the concept of a female goddess, putting her side by side with the male god in seeking dualism and multiple gods. Thus fighting the concept that the title “Father” is assigned to God “the Father”, because “the Father” is the origin in the Trinity. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are the origin of the whole creation. It is noteworthy to mention that Ab (father) in Syriac means origin.
The fatherhood of the Father to the Son, and His fatherhood to the creation does not mean that He is male, but that He is the origin and to Him fatherhood is assigned. God is a spirit; spirits do not have masculine and feminine. As for the Son and the Holy Spirit they have one and the same essence with the Father without division or separation. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are one God and not three Gods. They have the same being and existence, which can never separate, and their divinity is one. The Wise, the Wisdom and the Spirit of Wisdom are one truth that can never be fractionalized.
Q: What are the proofs that “The Da Vinci Code” aim at heathen feminism?
A: We will give examples of excerpts from this book to prove this, noting the page number from the original English print.
On page 480 of The Da Vinci Code the following is written:
“The blade represents all that is masculine.” (a triangle with its head up)
“And the inverse is the chalice, which represents the feminine.” (a triangle with its base up)
On page 481 of the same book the following is written:
“The blade and chalice,
Fused as one.
The Star of David… the perfect union of male and female… Solomon’s Seal… marking the Holy of Holies, where the male and female deities –Yehweh and Shekinah- were thought to dwell.”
We should note here that Shekinah is a Hebrew word meaning “dwelling”, the place where the glory of God came upon the Ark of the Covenant in the Holy of Holies in the Tabernacle. Shekinah would never refer to a female goddess, because Jews do not believe in multiple Gods.
On page 483:
“The stars were just now appearing, but to the west, a single point of light glowed brighter than any other… It was Venus. The ancient Goddess shining down with her steady and patient light.”
On page 479
“But if the Sangreal documents remain hidden, the story of Mary Magdalene will be lost forever”. Langdon (the hero of the novel) laughed.
“Will it? Look around you. Her story is being told in art, music, and books. More so every day. The pendulum is swinging. We are starting to sense the dangers of our history… and of our destructive paths. We are beginning to sense the need to restore the sacred feminine. She (the grandmother of Sophie the heroine of the Novel whom the writer claims to be the grand daughter of Christ and Mary Magdalene) paused. “You mentioned you are writing a manuscript about the symbols of the sacred feminine, are you not?”
She smiled. “Finish it. Mr. Langdon. Sing her a song. The world needs modern troubadours”
On page 467:
“Line of Rose -the ancient lineage of Mary Magdalene.”
“Roses. The womb of the goddess”
“Every surface in the chapel (Rosslyn Chapel) had been carved with symbols -Christian cruciforms, Jewish stars, Masonic seals, Templar crosses, cornucopias, pyramids, astrological signs, plants, vegetables, pentacles and roses. The knights Templar had
stonemasons, erecting Templar churches all over
The master masons (Masonism is a secret religion that mingles religions and has secret cadres against religion) had left no stone uncarved. Rosslyn Chapel was a shrine to all faiths… to all traditions… and above all, to nature and the goddess.”
The most important thing we notice here is that the writer of The Da Vinci Code, after attacking the doctrine of the divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ, claiming that Constantine, in the fourth century, imposed this belief on the church during the Council of Nicaea 325 AD, (although gospel manuscripts of several papyrus preserved in European museums and which are discovered in different places of Egypt dating back to the second century AD witness the divinity of Christ, prior to the Council of Nicaea with about 125 years), the writer turns to deify Mary Magdalene, considering her womb as the womb of the female goddess which carried the blood of Christ, and is the grail which represents the female goddess married to the male god, that the star of David proclaims in the secret place of Mary Magdalene. Thus he deceitfully aims at emphasizing that God (Yehweh) marries Shekinah (the female goddess) in the Holy of Holies to reach this base i.e. female deifying as heathenism.
