The new movie “Noah” will be hitting the screens this Friday, March 28th. I thought you could use a few facts to help you determine if you should go see this film that is claiming to be “inspired by the Biblical story”. Hopefully these facts, of which you may not be aware, will make you think twice before you give your money over to Paramount Pictures and the director of the movie, Darren Aronofsky.
Facts To Consider
- Darren Aronofsky, the director of the film, is a “card carrying atheist” and open about it.
- At the opening of the Noah Movie in Mexico, Darren Aronofsky said: “It’s a very, very different movie. Anything you’re expecting, you’re f—ing wrong.”
- Aronofsky also said: “I’m Godless. And so I’ve had to make my God, and my God is narrative filmmaking, which is — ultimately what my God becomes.”
- Aronofsky is not interested in the Biblical record, fossil record, or hundreds of cultural records that testify to the Flood being a true event. He summed up his view of the Biblical account like this: “I don’t think it’s a very religious story, I think it’s a great fable that’s part of so many different religions and spiritual practices. I just think it’s a great story that’s never been on film.”
- Paramount Pictures is the funder for this movie. They also produced the Wolf of Wall Street which used the F word more than 500 times at an average of one every 21 seconds and blasphemed the name of God almost two dozen times.
- Reason #1 in the article, “5 Reasons Why Atheists Should Look Forward To Noah” is “Darren Aronofsky is God.” The article concludes, “So get out there, enjoy the film and lap it up like the deity that you’ve always wanted to be!”
- Critics are not so thrilled about the project saying, “Some have been bowled over by his epic take on the story of the ark, while most others find his movie messy and ill-conceived, with the result not quite coming together.”
While these seven reasons don’t begin to cover the totally un-Biblical approach taken on this Historical Account, they are enough for me to say, “No, Thank You!” Hollywood only hears $$$$$$$, so if you don’t give it to them, they WILL listen!
And, you have to wonder, is this atheist just seeing if he can make fun of the Bible and get Christians to pay for it?
Thanks for reading and thanks for praying.
