Still trying to decide whether or not to see the movie Noah with the flood of biblical proportions and an unbiblical attitude? Here’s a few pieces from “experts.”
Jerry A. Johnson, Ph.D., is President & CEO of National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) and a theologian who has taught on cinema and theology. So, he’s a pretty important guy who should have some knowledge in this area. He has three posts on Ed Stetzer’s blog through Christianity Today (or something like that). They discuss the positive, the negative and the application.
For five positives go here: http://www.christianitytoday.com/edstetzer/2014/february/noah-five-positive-facts-about-this-film.html. [NOTE: The five positives that are given sound like the justification given by a man searching for a reason to write the article.]
For five negatives go here: http://www.christianitytoday.com/edstetzer/2014/february/noah-five-negative-features-about-this-film.html?utm_source=ctweekly-html&utm_medium=Newsletter&utm_term=13845242&utm_content=258740039&utm_campaign=2013
For some application go here: http://www.christianitytoday.com/edstetzer/2014/march/noah-application-for-christians-and-hollywood.html?utm_source=ctweekly-html&utm_medium=Newsletter&utm_term=13845242&utm_content=258740039&utm_campaign=2013
If you want the best Christian assessment of the movie, go to Answers in Genesis. At that site you can read reviews or view a panel discussion which includes Ken Ham and six AiG instructors and researchers. Here’s the link http://www.answersingenesis.org/creation-debate/noah-movie.
If you’re really ambitious, just ”Google” reviews for the movie; you’ll get a few million hits. But, frankly, don’t waste your time.
The movie Noah is a Hollywood production and does not follow the Genesis story. The name of God is never mentioned in the movie. Noah is portrayed as a drunk and aligns himself with fallen angels for protection while he builds the arc. If you’re a Believer, don't waste your money on this movie; it is crap. Read you Bible instead.
