I must admit that I was very excited about going to see the movie Noah with my wife. But then I came across some information that turned my stomach and caused me to change my mind. However, as you read this article, please note that it’s not my intention to dissuade anyone from doing so. This article is written in defense of God and the Holy Scripture. As always I am simply going to state the facts and leave it up to you to decide. Part of my ministerial calling as a preacher of the gospel is to be a watchman on the wall, and to keep the body of Christ informed and aware about the devices of the enemy. Some may say that I am too radical; others think I am too spiritual. Nonetheless, I am neither of the two, but rather I am a servant of the King of Kings, and I will not support anything that opposes my God. There is no doubt; we are living in a time of the greatest prophetic fulfillment this world has ever witnessed. Even as I type these words, things are happening all around the world both in the physical and spiritual realms that is pointing us toward the end. Let me quickly remind you that as we draw closer and closer to the end of the ages, the enemy is using and will use every possible medium to promote his agenda in the earth. Therefore it is imperative that Christians do as the Apostle Peter encourages us to do; “Be sober, and be vigilant for your adversary the devil as a roaring lion, is walking around seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8). I know some of you may not be convinced and you may say to yourself, “it’s just a movie”, or “what’s the big deal”. Please read this entire article before you decide to support this movie. Having said that, let’s talk about the movie “Noah”. After I’ve looked into this, it is very clear that it is not true to the essence, values, and integrity of the scripture that is the cornerstone of the faith of millions Christians and Jews worldwide.
The new sensational Hollywood movie will hit the big screens everywhere today March 28th. Hence I intentionally decided to post this article today. You have to understand that there is a postmodern agenda in America today that is seeking to delete everything that is of God or even resembles God. Everything that we believe and hold sacred to us is under severe attack, even the very existence of God, more belligerent than ever before. I am going to share some facts to help you determine if you should go see the film claiming to be “inspired by the Biblical story”. While it is true that the movie was in fact inspired by the Biblical account of Noah and the Ark, the movie itself is heavily Anti-God and Anti-Scripture. There is a completely unbiblical approach and a secret Atheistic agenda behind the production of this movie. The movie was funded by the big screen tycoon Paramount Pictures and produced by Darren Aronofsky who happens to be a known Atheist and he is very open about it. Paramount also produced the Wolf of Wall Street which used the ‘F’ word more than 500 times at an average of one every 21 seconds and blasphemed the name of God almost two dozen times. In addition, Darren Aronofsky went on record saying, “I am Godless. And so I’ve had to make my God, and my God is narrative filmmaking, which is — ultimately what my God becomes.”Most of you who follow my writings would have probably read my article titled “The Sunday Assembly”. If you are reading this and you haven’t yet, click here to read it http://www.jayongeorge.com/2013/11/22/the-godless-church/, or go to the November archives on my homepage and you can read it there. The Sunday Assembly is essentially an Atheistic church that is pushing a godless agenda in our society today, and they are growing exponentially. In fact, the Sunday Assembly defines itself as “a godless congregation that celebrates life.” Darren Aronofsky is an avid supporter of the Sunday Assembly and together they are pushing an Anti-God, Anti-Christ agenda. It is quite ironic to me that an Atheist wants to produce a Biblical movie? Why would a man who aggressively and openly does not believe in the existence of God, want to promote a Biblical account that gives credit to the very God he rejects. The answer is simple; he is not giving any credit to God. Here are the reasons.
First and foremost, Darren Aronofsky’s objective for the movie “Noah” is to discredit the Genesis account and the God of the sacred text. The movie does not accurately represent the biblical text, and entirely removes the word “God”, and replaces it with the word “Creator”. In fact at the opening of the Noah Movie in Mexico, Darren Aronofsky said “It’s a very, very different movie. Anything you’re expecting, you’re “f—ing” wrong.” Aronofsky is not interested in the Biblical record, fossil record, or hundreds of cultural records that testify to the Flood being a true event. He does not in any way, shape, or form believe in anything the Bible says, much less the Genesis account of Noah and the flood. He summed up his view of the Biblical account by saying “I don’t think it’s a very religious story, I think it’s a great fable that’s part of so many different religions and spiritual practices. I just think it’s a great story that’s never been on film.” He does not believe the biblical account of the flood is in fact a historical event. This movie project is a plot to dishonor the word of God, to ridicule God, and subliminally introduce Atheism to the masses.
Secondly, it’s always about money. Along with all of Hollywood, Darren Aronofsky has realized that there is money to be made in the realm of Christianity. This idea really took off with Mel Gibson’s “Passion of the Christ”, which lit up the big screens a decade ago. They have figured out that if they can take the biblical accounts and make movies out of it, Christians would flood the cinemas and theaters and as a result make them millions. Hollywood knows that any movie they make from the Bible, Christians would pay to see it. Another movie recently released on the big screen was “Son of God” that made millions and millions of dollars, most of which is going into someone’s bank account and not to expand the cause of Christ. This is not an indictment against all biblical movies, but it is a plea for us all to open our eyes and ears to the truth. The number one reason in an article titled, “Five Reasons Why Atheists Should Look Forward to Noah,” is “Darren Aronofsky is God.” The article concludes, “So get out there, enjoy the film and lap it up like the deity that you’ve always wanted to be!” The movie is not biblically sound yet it targets Christian from whom they will make millions starting tonight.
Here is what the mega star actor Russell Crowe said, “A lot of people think they know the story but what they recall are children’s stories from Sunday school and not what the Bible says.” He continues, “This story is contained in every religious text. Noah is in the Qu’ran. People from all over the world outside of religion have flood mythology. In my eyes, Noah is just a normal man….” Trust me, Darren Aronofsky and his cohorts are laughing all the way to the bank. But more importantly, they are laughing at the gullibility of Christians in America. The movie Noah is a mockery of the God that we serve and I choose not to support it. I am quite aware that my decision to not go see the movie would not change the outcome. I have made this decision because I refuse to support anything or any entity that is unashamedly attempting to bring disrepute to the name of God. I refuse to use my God-given resources to pay to see a movie that is exalting itself against the knowledge of God. I refuse to join Darren Aronofsky and support a cause that is seeking to scoff at the very word that I preach and hold as sacred. I am like David when he came before Goliath and the Philistines, he said, “Who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God?” (1 Sam. 17:26). I will not take pleasure in anything that is a denunciation of God and the Bible. This movie is nothing but a twisted version of the Old Testament account of Noah and the Ark. The truth is I prefer pay to see any other decent secular movie that does not have a secret agenda to shame the name of God.I much prefer Ray Comfort’s version of Noah. Evangelist and Apologist Ray Comfort released “Noah – And the Last Days” days before the upcoming Hollywood epic starring Russell Crowe hits theaters today. The 30-minute “documovie” by Living Waters Publications features street interviews with many saying they don’t believe the biblical account of Noah and the ark is real. Comfort makes the case for the ark and compares the days of Noah and the flood to the 21st century. I really hope Christians will watch ‘Noah – And the Last Days’ to learn the real biblical reason God sent a worldwide Flood and be able to share these truths with those who see the Hollywood version. Ray Comfort said “Rather than providing mere entertainment, we want viewers to consider whether the biblical warning of Noah applies to them today.”
Darren Aronofsky and Hollywood’s version of Noah may be more exciting and entertaining, but it is an unbiblical ridicule at the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. On the other hand, Ray Comfort’s version of Noah is a simple 30 minute documovie, but it is loaded with the truth, and properly represents, and gives credence to our God. Noah- And the last days is available for download for $4.99 here, http://www.store.creation.org/index/page/product/product_id/1715. The website for the movie itself is www.NoahTheMovie.com. I encourage Christians to help make some noise for Ray Comfort’s movie and promote it in your churches. Let me give you a quick reminder of Adam and Eve in the garden. The serpent was able to convince Eve to eat the fruit by simply giving her 70% truth mixed with 30% untruth. He basically added the word “not” to the word of God and that’s all it took. I say that to show you that his strategy has not changed. He is not original in anything that he does, so he takes God’s truth and mixes it with his lies before he serves it to you. In the same way Aronofsky’s Noah movie appears to be truthful, but in reality it is an atheistic plot to make fun of God and the Bible and get Christians to pay for it.
I have one message for Darren Aronofsky and then I rest my case. “Be not deceived, God is not mocked, for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap” (Gal. 6:7). Make no mistake about it; God will always have the last laugh. Now I call on Christians everywhere to be contenders for the faith that was delivered to us. We cannot continue to be at ease in our churches, while the world does whatever pleases them with the truth, and much less support it. Let us not succumb to the devices of the enemy, but rather let us fight back and declare to Hollywood and to the world that we serve the one true and living God. However the sad truth is, many of you reading this article will choose to reject the truth and still support this movie. But he that has an ear let him hear. I end with this verse; “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Joshua 24:15).
