DISCLAIMER: This message is for people of faith. I’m not particularly interested in hearing feedback from people in the non-Christian/non-believer/atheist community on this thread. It is not targeted at you and I’m not here to debate. If you want that, start a group, thread, or whatever. But this is not for you, but for my brothers and sisters in Christ. What follows is are my personal views on the matter discussed. The reader is encouraged to collect information so as to form an opinion.
I am making a personal commitment to not see the movie “Noah”. It is not a Biblically-based movie. The producer and director are not particularly interested in an accurate depiction of the Biblical narrative. Spending money to support an attack against the Most High is the height of ungratefulness to the Lord in whom we live, move, and have our being. We are living in a time that people constantly pursue a course that suggests man is not under the authority of God. And quite frankly, this movie advances a non-Biblical agenda and promotes hostility towards God.
It is noteworthy that recently I’ve engaged in a number of discussions with white brothers and sisters in Christ regarding even more damaging lies diffused through Christendom. The infamous lie of a blue-eyed, blonde hair Jesus. A lie that served as a centerpiece for the Western world to institutionalize slavery, racial segregation, and white supremacy. The lie that missionaries promoted all over the world. The lie that manifested in the savage nature of South African Apartheid. Connected with that lie is the lack of scholarly discourse regarding Africa’s presence and role in Scriptures. Further, the culture that has its roots in Scripture has taken hold in international fairs, particularly as we look at matters of war and peace. These are the kernels of Dr. Martin Luther King’s challenges left to the church. And the church has been woefully inadequate in addressing them, causing people of good conscience and people of color to reject the Gospels.
None of us are perfect. Indeed, Christianity is a faith to which God calls imperfect people. This discussion, however, expresses our desire to to walk in truth. To seek to be better people. To pursue courses that please the Lord.
Noah, the movie, fails to do this. It little contemplates the Scriptures and the nature of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Noah uses techno-cinematography to advance great lies. And for this, I ask my Christian friends to join me in not supporting the movie. If other go to it, let them spend their money as it is their right. The Lord will address the hearts of non-believers, even as He addressed our hearts by bringing us into salvation.
So, I ask that you NOT go. Secondly, I ask that you share this article. And as I’m doing, focus on the intended primary recipient – people of faith. One need not engage in lengthy debates as that only distract from the central purpose of outreach/awareness for the believers.
