you say tomato, i say tomato.

May 23, 2006

O to grace how great a debtor daily I’m constrained to be!
Let thy goodness like a fetter, bind my wandering heart to thee
Prone to wander Lord I feel it, Prone to leave the God I love
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it, seal it for thy courts above.

today i watched the ever controversial da vinci code. it was interesting, definitely exciting. and of course thoughts about faith surfaced before i watched the movie. i actually read the book already, but i don’t remember the specific details. i remember reading it in a time when my faith was non existent. and i guess reading it even justified it more.

funny thing was, while i was watching the movie, it never felt like it was something real. it would be just like an normal movie wherein the events are possible, but unlikely to happen, and at the end of the day, it is fiction. not expected to be a source of facts. maybe some parts were, but the overall cohesive story is improbable.

so how’d it affect me? faith is not about institutions, traditions, or even religion. faith is based on a relationship. and no matter what other people do or say, faith does not change if you have a relationship with God. i know there are times that i may slip and fall, but the great thing is He’s always there to catch me.
