I was scrolling through facebook and one of my friends on there, another church member, had shared a link on Christians signing some petition about the new Noah movie coming out, saying its not following the bible exactly...or as close as it should be. So I did a search on it to see what was going on. While The Blaze is not news site I would normally ever share, it seemed to about the only choice on this other then Fox news:
Will ‘Noah’ Film Radically Depart From the Biblical Story? Christian Group Pens Open Letter to Hollywood Amid Big Debate
It had a few trailers in there but I really don't know how anyone can know if the movie is going to follow the bible exactly when its not even out yet. Comes out later in March...which since its that soon, I would say it a little too late (way too late) to make any major changes to it. Does anyone know more about this?
Truth be there is only ONE Christian movie that exactly follows scripture and that is Gospel of John..though some didn't like it because the actor has a British accent...something obviously Jesus wouldn't have. People can get real particular about these things, which I understand...but personally I think its great to have something of the bible out there, even if its not completely accurate. Most of us still buy and watch many, many Christian movies even though they simply aren't accurate anyway.
Watching the Indian Jones movie Raiders of the Lost Ark got me looking in the bible for more information on the ark...I was not a bible reader at all. After my dad died when I was a kid, I pretty much grew up in the world with no spiritual guidance. It wasn't that I had forgotten everything I read in it when I was a kid, I knew just enough to find it in the bible where they talked about the ark. You never know what might spur an interest in the bible for people to want to know more and actually read it.
I want to see it anyway and see for myself. But I am really confused what is so off about this movie that its gotten so many to sign a petition for it to be changed and be more accurate.
