Whatʻs wrong with using the word "Creator" instead of "God"?
Critics of the new movie "Noah" are arguing that lead actor Russell Crowe should have used the word "God" instead of "Creator". They say that the King James version of the Bible uses the word "God" and "Lord" and that the movie takes too much creative license.
Because some people are only happy if THEY are not offended. i.e they don't care for impartiality. I think it should be a nice neutral for everyone. "God" is not "god" in all of the languages that use Noah as part of their literature. But you can't keep all of the people happy all of the time, especially complainers.
Sad but true. The critics seem to be dependent on the English translation and a 3 letter word. They may be doing Russell Crowe a favor by drumming up publicity.
as usual, the Christians are judged as complainers by some who whine.
It is not the impartiality, but the impropriety that is in question.
I never understand people who argue about the proper color of red that Santa's suit should be. I think they are grandly missing the point.
God has many names and each can be used to describe one thing about him or what he did. I don't have any problem with "Creator" being used instead of "God" in the movie.
There is nothing wrong with using the word "Creator" instead of "God". And in the context of this discussion the use of "Creator" instead of "God" is irrelevant. Noah is a movie, Russell Crowe is playing a part based upon a screen writers interpretation. These are the screen writers words. I have not seen the movie, but I have written screen plays and the screen writer is telling his story regardless of the source. And a discussion about what is written in the King James version of the Bible is also irrelevant because it is an interpreted translation version of the original and like any translation it is subject to flaws based upon who translated it. While God and Creator are not necessarily interchangeable they can be based upon context and what the writer was trying to say.

You say tomatos I say tomahtos. Ha, ha. I agree with cfin. No matter what you do or who you are someone will have a problem with it, or you. Even God has His critics. You like the capital letters? No? Ha, ha. With the varied and bizarre constraints of religion any movie or book with a religious reference will have those who want to put their brand on it. Personally I don't like the King James version of the bible. I prefer the King Bob version. It's much easier to read and has stick figure illustrations in color.
Cultural sensitivity based on insensitive ideological considerations results in a false and biased presentation within art media. The current release of NOAH is an example of such insensitive cultivation. Therefore, the critics of the use of Creator rather than God in this new movie seek to rectify such insensitive artistic consideration.
Cultural insensitivity appears routinely in the media as biased presentation rises to greater heights of unhealthy levels. This is seen through those who oppose war as it costs many soldiers lives, but then spread their support for abortions through a "woman's choice" platform.
Therefore, the removal of God within the new film NOAH represents the same unhealthy cryptic camouflage to disguise their true colors. Box office relationships are the focus of the media artists as they worship the beast of the purse.

I just saw Les Miserables this weekend and I about curious about opinions on Javert. I did not really know the story going into the film, but from what I gathered, I was really meant to "hate" Javert (the character, not Russell Crowe's adaptation.)I did not hate him. In fact,...
