 A fairly even handed review of "Noah"

I thought this was a pretty well- balanced review.

 Re: A fairly even handed review of "Noah"


I strongly encourage believers to not even consider to watch this movie along with most modern movies from hollywood.

Ken Ham with a panel of 6 godly men show clearly how this film is to be avoided by true christians: http://www.answersingenesis.org/creation-debate/

 Re:

So if Ken Ham watched the movie and judged it I think anyone can do the same for themselves. So he can tell what a true christian is with his 6 man panel! O the irony!

My friend I am not sure why you are so negative to ken ham's video and heart for believers not to be deceived by hollywood and unsaved movie director's agendas. There are many young believers as well as believers who are not grounded in God's Word that they are going to save them from possible deceptions from this movie.

The current "christian" movies being done by hollywood, ie the bible series, son of God, noah and others are all not in support of promoting the true faith of Christianity but they are actually undermining it in very subtle ways. I have seen this clearly from just even clips of each one. I have no desire to see these movies and I believe most true christians should not be watching such things.

 Re:

Our God is faithful to young believers. I don't think telling people what too see ever works. I find telling young believers about The glory of Jesus Christ is all they need. I will warn sometimes but if there actions don't come from there own heart before God they wont grow in the Lord. It just becomes touch not taste not. Ken Ham is just a man and so am I that's all.

 Re:

I appreciate ken hams ministry very much but he dies have something of a vested interest in this topic.

He has every right to point out the errors in the movie and I am sure there are many.

But this article points out that there is some possibility that the good may outweigh the bad.


Whether the fact that Hollywood is putting out biblical based movies is a good or bad thing is open to debate.

If a good quality Christian movie could be made I am sure it would be watched by a lot of people. The problem is that most Christian movies put out by Christians are mediocre at best at least from a pure quality standpoint.

Why can't a good quality Christian movie be made that is true to the bible?

I think that is an important question.

 Re:

Cryinthenite: I don't think anyone is trying to say that you don't have the ability to watch and judge. But when mature, godly men give their opinion that the movie is not a good thing to watch, you are wise if you take that advice seriously. I have been a believer long enough to see the subtle nature of the world's philosophies have a very destructive effect on many believers who are young on the faith. I have also seen the very elect deceived as well. I have done some research on the movie, and from what I have ascertained there is nothing in it that would build my faith, but much that seeks to rewrite and cast doubt about the true history and nature of this event.I would advise young believers, in fact probably most all believers, to ignore this picture. I think it good advice.

It is always good to check this one, too.

Here it is for Noah.
http://www.pluggedin.com/movies/intheaters/noah-2014.aspx

SEXUAL CONTENT
Shem playfully tackles Ila in the forest and kisses her passionately, his mouth working its way to her belly, where she bares a deep scar. Ila makes him stop. She is, we're told, barren because of a childhood injury, and she tearfully pleads with Noah to find Shem a wife who can provide him children and, thus, happiness.

In another scene Ila runs to Shem and begins kissing him like crazy, hurriedly stripping off clothes. (The camera briefly spies skin and then moves away.) Later, she discovers she's pregnant, and the ecstatic couple ask Noah for his blessing.

Adam and Eve are seen naked (they're glowing and the shot is from a distance), as is a drunken Noah. (Nothing explicit is seen.) Naameh's draped top reveals quite a lot of cleavage in one scene. In a town, girls and women are traded for food.

DRUG AND ALCOHOL CONTENT
Noah, believing he let the Creator down, gets rip-roaring drunk, spending what would seem to be days guzzling down wine. He finally passes out, naked. (We see him from a distance, lying face down.) Methuselah gives Noah some tea that appears to be drugged, leading to a strange vision.

 Re:

To state no true believer should see this is just an opinion of a mere man. I find it very judgmental. When do we teach people to grow in the Lord and TRUST THE INWARD ANOITING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT! Yes we can deceive ourselves that's why we look to the Lord and step out in a faith love relationship with the Lord. We all need to grow in this. Those who teach need to respect the work of the spirit in His people. Jesus said His sheep will know His voice. We don't any man for that. I have 4 teens and know this is hard to do.
