We are about a week from the global release of The DaVinci Code movie. I ran across this amazing news story from an online news site in New Delhi, India.
While the bulk of the article talks about a move to ban The DaVinci Code movie in India, read the last few paragraphs. This secular news site links to a clear presentation of the gospel, and quotes from the site in a very attractive way. As I looked at this news article, I realized that the only live hyperlink in the entire article is to a clear gospel page, where people can come to know God in a personal way. The only hyperlink!
Reading this, I was reminded of Paul’s letter to the Philippians (see 2:15-18):
It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill. The latter do so in love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. The former preach Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing that they can stir up trouble for me while I am in chains. But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice.
I rejoice because the most important thing is happening. Christ is being preached.
