Da Vinci Code

In 2006 the movie The Da Vinci Code was released there was huge hue and cry raised by the catholics here in India. It was mainly because the movie alleged that Jesus Christ was married to Mary Magdalene and had children.

I am Roman Catholic since birth and one of my oldest friends (our friendship goes back almost 21 years as of the date of writing this piece) came to my place and expressed this same outrage and thought that we should do something about it. To which I offered him my view on my religion.

I believe in Jesus not because he was not married or did not have children. I believe in the Man who could walk over water, calm the sea by speaking to it, heal the blind and above all in the Man that defeated death. So to me it does not matter if he was married or if he had children. I do not believe in Jesus as God because he did not have sex or have children, I believe in Him for being the Son of God and for being my Savior.
