On Friday, March 28, 2014, the movie Noah starring Russell Crowe will open in theaters nationwide. I already critiqued the politically correct "Christ" in the movie Son of God (see my post of 3/13/14). However, this movie spews blasphemy after blasphemy under the guise of "artistic license." The movie cost Paramount Pictures $160 million dollars to produce, and will insult God without a word of protest from the Vatican II sect's hierarchy. How many of them will go to see this trash, unaware of what's in store?
The movie's producer, one Darren Aronofsky, holds to fashionable New Age beliefs. He had this to say about the Biblical Noah:
“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.” –Darren Aronofsky, Variety 2012.
Aronofsky makes good on his claim by taking the religion out and filling it with his occultic and politically left-wing propaganda.
The movie Noah will use its "artistic licence" to inform us of the following:
- God didn't destroy the ancient world because of sin, it was overpopulation and a lack of environmentalism that caused the great flood
- Noah was a dark, evil, drunken ax-wielding murderer
- Noah threatened to kill his eldest son's wife and her daughter to prevent the re-population of Earth
- Noah's friend Methuselah was a witch doctor
- Noah enlisted the aid of demons to help build the Ark.
Thus, according to the Noah movie, the way to be saved is not though the grace of God when a person has repentant faith, but by doing enough to "save" planet earth and by becoming a good little environmentalist. Indeed, later in the movie, Noah says, “We must change. We must treat the world with mercy so that the Creator will show us mercy…We must respect the ground, respect the rivers and seas. Respect the other beasts of the Earth.” Too bad the truth of the Bible isn't shown any respect. And, of course, the violence and sexual perversion of the day (not unlike the 21st century) which made men so evil and caused God to flood the Earth, is never mentioned once.
Hollywood screenwriter Brian Godawa condemned the Noah script under a post entitled "Darren Aronofsky's Noah: Environmentalist Wacko." Godawa wrote, "If you were expecting a Biblically faithful retelling of the story of the greatest mariner in history and a tale of redemption and obedience to God you'll be sorely disappointed.” (see http://godawa.com/movieblog/darren-aronofskys-noah-environmentalist-wacko/) Consider what actor Russell Crowe who portrayed the movie Noah said about the real Noah:
“The funny thing with people, they consider Noah to be a benevolent figure because he looked after the animals: 'Awww, Noah. Noah and the animals.' It's like, are you kidding me? This is the dude that stood by and watched the entire population of the planet perish. He's not benevolent. He's not even nice. You know what I mean? At one point in the story his son says, 'I thought you were chosen because you were good?' And he goes, 'I was chosen because I can get the job done, mate.' So I think people are gonna be...judging from where their questions come from, I think they're gonna be quite surprised what Noah actually means, what it means to be in that position." (see http://www.etonline.com/movies/134773_Russell_Crowe_Talks_Noah/)
Mr. Crowe should read what God says of Noah: “But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord…. Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his time; Noah walked with God” (Genesis 6:8-9). The movie claims it was "God's Will" that Noah's granddaughters should be killed to stop overpopulation from happening again.
Godwa's blog notes:“Most of the last half of the script is a family killer thriller like Sleeping With the Enemy, that asks the dark dramatic movie question ‘will Noah kill the child if it is a girl or not?' Ancient sex-selection infanticide. The woman gives birth to twin girls, and Noah gets all the way up to killing not one but two female infants…. But in the end, he fails. He says to himself, to the Creator, ‘I can’t. I can’t do it. I am sorry. I am so sorry.’ He is just too compassionate to carry out God’s cruel plan. Noah is more loving than God.” ( see op. cit.)
All this falls right into the hands of the New Atheists who claim that if God did exist He must be evil. Second, it condones the murder of the innocent to "save" mother earth. There are millions of innocent babies who are murdered each year by abortion, yet we hear more about the "unethical treatment of animals." To be certain God does not condone cruelty to animals, but humans are created in His image and likeness; we are not merely evolved primates on the same level with lab rats.
The million dollar question: "Why aren't the Vatican II clergy protesting?" (At least the ones not in prison).
I guess they're too busy promoting "Sister" Cristina, the 25 year old "singing nun" who claims that performing a suggestive song on a TV show is Bergoglio's idea of "evangelization." Or maybe finding ways of getting adulterers to receive the Novus Bogus cracker (what they refer to as "communion") is consuming all their time. In any case, they are not at all worried that thousands of their followers will be handing over money to a New Age guru who paints God as evil, Noah as a madman, and exhorts us to save the environment by lowering the human population. I wonder if Aronofsky missed the opportunity to inform the audience that the rainbow was God's approval of sodomite "marriage?" Truly, the days we live in are as dark as those of the Biblical Noah. Pray hard.
