Mary Alice Bennett's new article The Sauniere Mystery Continues, UFO Digest,
May.29.2008, while a very well researched and articulated article, continues
the same old myth that Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene and was the father
to a unique earthly bloodline. She perpetuates the original legend advocated
by Michael Baigent in his controversial book Holy Blood, Holy Grail and later
apparently plagiarized by Dan Brown in his book DaVinci Code where diverse
romantic elements are mixed together about a Merovingian dynasty, the
Templars, the Visigoths, the Cathars, Leonardo Da Vinci, the Coptic Gnostics,
the Nag Hammadi Library and even some LDS heresies concerning the lost tribes
of Israel in space to concoct a cauldron of "deceitful spirits and doctrines
of demons" (1Timothy 4:1) to show that Jesus was not divine and was not
resurrected after dying for our sins. Instead, according to this argument, he
apparently married Mary Magdalene and fathered children.
The reason that (some) Christians reject this thesis with such vigor is because of
what the Apostle Paul wrote to the Church at Corinth 2000 years ago in
response to earlier Gnostic heresies. He wrote that if this is indeed true
than Christianity is a farce and we are all dead in our sins.
"If Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless, you are still in your
sins," (1 Corinthians 15:17).
Bennett goes on to state that just because Jesus was married does not
necessarily negate the fact that He was the Savior and died and rose again and
she cites Leonardo DaVinci as proof. She is once again incorrect because the
Bible most certainly does state that He never married.*
First of all, the Bible clearly states that He was pure as a spotless lamb.
"Having no spot or wrinkle, holy and blameless," (Ephesians 5:27).
"Not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold but with the precious
blood as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ' (1Peter
Not that marriage or conception is by any means evil, but He was most
certainly chaste. He had to be pure and virginal in order to be able to take
on the sins of the world. Furthermore, Christ was to be married to the Church
not to Mary Magdalene or any other earthly woman.
"Christ is the head (husband) of the Church, "(Ephesians 5:22-23)
"For I betrothed you (Church) to one husband, Christ," (2 Corinthians 11:2)
Thus in Biblical terms, Christ was the bridegroom and the Church was the Bride
not Mary Magdalene. How is it then that well meaning, intelligent people like
Mary Alice Bennett cannot see the reality of this truth and are deceived? Once
again the Apostle Paul enlightens us.
"But I am afraid, lest as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your
minds shall be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ
" (2Corinthians 11:3).
"A natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God for they are
foolishness to him and he cannot understand them because they are spiritually
appraised," (1Corinthians 2:14)
Unless one is truly born again and God is with him, a person can be easily
deceived. This does not mean that one can be born again by church membership
or baptism or tithing or lighting candles. The obvious hypocrisy of organized
religion in its futile attempt to control and thereby subjugate individuals
runs many people off. I know that it did me.
