    quick question… Would it be wrong to go see the movie? I remember when “The Da Vinci Code” came out Lacey and I went to see it. One of my bible teachers asked how the movie was, my response: “it was pretty good.” His reply: “It was good to go be entertained by lies and blasphemy of Christ?” Ouch. So my thought was that for entertainment purposes, bad idea. But what about for educational purposes? To be able to answer people once they have seen the movie. Although for that purpose you could probably just study the website in your link. And also there is the issue of supporting the movie with $ by going and seeing it. At this point I don’t think I’ll see it unless I can go in faith and for a specific purpose but definately not for entertainment.
