I’m Not Watching Aronofsky’s Noah, But …

That’s right I said it. Actually I said it on Twitter a couple days ago too, but I’m not going to spend money to watch Darren Aronofsky’s new movie: Noah. Why? Because when I hear Noah, I think of Noah from the Bible. This isn’t him, with the exception of the names of his forefathers and children.

As someone who actually believes the Bible’s explanation and reasoning for a global flood, a man named Noah, and the ark he built, going to a movie theater to watch this would result in either my arrest or an aneurysm. However, some other folks have watched it and I found these two particular commentaries very thought-provoking. I hope you will too:

The Matt Walsh Blog: I’m a Christian and I think ‘Noah’ Deserves a Four Star Review

Don’t be fooled by the title, Walsh wasn’t taken in by the movie at all and some of his descriptions of what happens in it had me laughing out loud.

Dr. Brian Mattson: Sympathy for the Devil

Mattson rather convincingly argues the movie isn’t the biblical account of Noah at all, rather the product of Jewish mysticism. “This was a thoroughly pagan retelling of the Noah story direct from Kabbalist and Gnostic sources. To my mind, there is simply no doubt about this,” he says. This is a must read!

    I’m semi-surprised by the number of people making excuses for this and why…I’m not of the mind that we, as believers, need to actually see every thing that rolls down the pike in order to make a right judgment. Especially when we’d have to line the pockets of such folks for the privilege of having our concerns confirmed! *sigh*
