Is the Bible Code real?

I am not sure exactly what you are referring to as the Bible
code. Many people at various times have claimed to have found mysterious
codes in the Bible which gives them access to special spiritual knowledge,
deeper than the common run-of-the-mill Christian. The freemasons are
famous for finding secret messages hidden in the Bible text. A number of
other groups do this as well. These groups are modern-day versions of the
Gnosticism movements of the first and second century AD. The Gnostics
attracted followers by claiming to have a specially revealed deep
knowledge of God and of the scriptures which they only revealed to their
disciples in special meetings and so forth. This may appeal to human
pride, but it definitely is not from God. The New Testament clearly
teaches that the gospel has been revealed to babes. It takes no special
hidden knowledge to come into a saved relationship with God.

So, to be honest, I am not sure which of the pseudo-Gnostic
movements you are referring to, but I can assure you that anyone who
claims to have found a special code in the Bible is a deceiver and you
would do well to avoid such a religious movement. Just read your Bible
and you will find there the words of life there.
