Tip of the Day: Evangelism (9)


The Da Vinci Code‘s influence upon our nation’s pop-culture is evident. I wish I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard, “What about the Gnostic Gospels?” 

Then I’d have almost 8 extra dollars! 

Rather than getting into a technical discussion (in which I would fumble around a bit and he/she probably wouldn’t get much out of it anyway), this response usually helps moves the discussion away from the Gnostic Gospels: 

The Gnostic Gospels truly are fascinating. Have you ever read the Gospel of Thomas? Interestingly, it records Peter as saying, “Make Mary leave us because females don’t deserve to live.” Jesus responds, “Every woman who makes herself male will enter the kingdom of heaven.”*

*First heard from Dr. Bruce Meyer.

    For me the easiest response is that the Bible in non-contradictory and as seen from the quote above this contradicts biblical teaching.
