What Christian Worth His Or Her Salt Would Want To Go And See The New Noah Movie?

I know it is all about the money why Hollywood - the most hostile quadrant of our citizenry to the Christian religion… and who has collectively made a Midas living out of overtly mocking and perverting God’s Bible - is now making a spate of movies based on the Christian Holy Book. I suppose that we could chalk it up to Mel Gibson’s lucrative Passion-Of-The-Christ, which has made close to a Billion dollars so far or to the recent History Channel’s Biblical series, which garnered tens of millions of viewers. So here comes the new Bible story, Noah, which has pretty good Hollywood pedigree like Russell Crowe - playing the Biblical holy man - and fame director, Darren Oronofsky… to cash into the Lord’s Tome… but right off the bat, those of us who are Traditional Christians and who intimately know our Bible take much umbrage when one of the adverts for the Noah movie is saying come and see ‘the untold story.’

Where else and which other religion does Hollywood feels that it has an unfettered license to pervert its tenets? I am told that one of the themes of the new Noah movie is about the mostly secular gospel of Global Warming… oops, I meant 'Climate Change, 'which, apparently, contributed to the epic Flood - let me guess, I suppose that there was also a gay couple, among the four couples, that boarded the Ark too… after all, lest we forget that The Almighty God punctuated the end of the Divine Deluge with a rainbow.

Do you suppose that I - who see all other religions outside of Christianity as idol worship - could make a Muslim movie and offend their prophet, Muhammad, or moreover, do you think that you are going to see the day when Hollywood does so? Incidentally, even now a video director is still in jail because he made a movie that offended Muslims - you remember that same video was initially blamed by the Obama administration as the catalyst that resulted in the Benghazi massacre that murdered four of our citizens, including our Ambassador to Libya.

Some of the most popular blogs that I have authored in this forum are my movie reviews… so it is not that I do not like the movies - but just how Hollywood gives ‘mad props,’ mostly out of fear, for anything remotely Islam or to the gay issue... so too that it makes me irate when Hollywood continuously offends Traditional Christians... and not afford them the respect it pays other religious communities. I have never seen any of the movies made about any of our renowned gay citizens - but dollars to donuts that meticulous care was taken by Hollywood not to offend gays or the LBGT community as a whole. My God, we are living in a world now where it is more socially acceptable to offend The Christ than it is to use a gay slur or the ‘n’ ‘word.’

If one were to watch the recent History Channel’s version of the Biblical stories... that the purported Christian couple producers - Mark Burnett and Roma Downey green-lighted - one would see that they conspicuously neglected to include the main, salient, moral reason why the Lord rained down fiery destruction on those practicing homosexuality - why do you think that this omission occurred? In the same vein, that it is why it is not surprising nor a stretch to think that Hollywood would take what to many of us is the literal Word of God and take perverted license….

I am told that Hollywood is currently making a Moses movie with Christian Bale, of Batman’s fame, playing the Jewish-warrior-emancipator - who knows what more perversions of that Bible tale are in store for those of us who are Traditional Christians: Hollywood could omit God’s punishment of Israel for worshipping idols - after all... Oprah Winfrey and most of Hollywood think that there are more than one god; and no doubt... there are going to be Scientific reasons for the ten plagues that afflicted the Egyptians; I know that we Black folks think that we have a corner on being enslaved… I wonder if Hollywood is going to omit the brutal slavery the Jews suffered at the hands of the mostly African Egyptians; and, I am supposing that among the enumerated abominations spelled out by God and codified by Moses in Leviticus 18:22… will be given the Politically Correct treatment, resulting in Hollywood's omission of homosexuality. The alleged offenses and slights that may be part of the new Noah movie are but an all out secular assault on Christianity and its values that is going to become more lethal right here in America - to such an eventuality, I say Maranatha!

      Verily Prime, I think you are right. In Genesis, the term Nephilim appears in the same chapter as the discussion of preparing for the deluge. I find it confusing when I compare terms like Nephilim from Genesis with terms like ‘the watchers’ that appear in Enoch. Genesis refers to the Nephilim as being on the earth at the same time that the Lord spoke to Noah. Genesis also hints at cross-breeding between men and angels. The translation I have leads me to think they are different things. In the same chapter where Enoch indicates the Lord spoke to Noah, Enoch also indicates that the Lord provided instructions to several of his angels regarding preparation for the Flood and cleansing of the Earth. In Genesis, the flood was about corruption on the Earth. Enoch indicates the corruption of concern was the cross-breeding between men and ‘the watchers’.

      Maybe we disagree, but I’d not be offended by this story, if that was what was told in the movie. On the other hand, if the plot of ‘Noah’ is derived from the Book of Gore, then I’d concur the movie was far more likely to be motivated by Midas or modern politics.

      As a Christian one must apologize when one does wrong - and to that end, I profusely apologize to the Hub editors... for I prematurely blamed the Hub editors for not featuring this blog because I thought that it was done because of its Traditional Christian contents... when it was because I had butchered the Queen's English in writing it initially... so that now when I made the corrections and grammatically improved the hub, it was then featured. Once again, I sincerely apologize to the Hub editors for my unchristian behavior!

      If I recalled reading the book of Enoch... much of the deluge had to do with the Nephilim, - correct me if I am in error?

      What are the chances that this movie will tell its story from the ancient Book of Enoch, rather than from the modern Book of Gore?

      Of course this Hub is not featured because it is again not in lockstep politically with the Hub editors... but I know the time is coming when they will not only censor us... but kill us for positing the Word of Christ - I beg the Lord to strengthen me in those days if I have to pay the ultimate price.

      You help to influence the naive when you share your opinion on matters like these. Thank you.

      Verily, you hit the nail on the head with this one. You manage to role Hollywood's double standards, climate change, homosexuality, idolatry, Benghazi, Polytheism and slavery into one hub page ending with the inevitable prophesied proclamation "Come Lord!" For sure you deserve a "Well done my good and faithful servant," may these money changers be vanquished by your righteous indignation!
