UPDATE: ‘Noah’ uses heretical Gnostic teachings, not the Bible. Story here.
Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis posted on Facebook his reaction to watching the Paramount film “Noah”:
Friends, I just arrived home after seeing the Hollywood (Paramount) movie NOAH tonight. It is MUCH much worse than I thought it would be. Much worse.
The Director of the movie, Darren Aronofsky has been quoted in the media as saying NOAH is ‘the least biblical biblical film ever made’, I agree wholeheartedly with him.
I am disgusted. I am going to come right out and say it–it is disgusting and evil–paganism! Do you really want your family to see a pagan movie the has Noah as some psychopath who says if his daughter-in-law’s baby is a girl, he will kill it as soon as it’s born. And then when two girls are born, bloodstained Noah (the man the Bible calls righteous Noah–Genesis 7:1), brings a knife down to one of the baby’s heads to kill it and at the last minute doesn’t do it–and then a bit later says he failed because he didn’t kill the babies. How can we recommend this movie and then speak against abortion! Psychopathic Noah sees humans as a blight on the planet and wants to rid the world of people.
I feel dirty–as if I have to somehow wash the evil off me.
I cannot believe there are Christian leaders who have recommended people see this movie.
It’s as if someone heard the name Noah, that there was a Flood and and Ark and then made a pagan movie up about it. I don’t think there is anything else that really has to do with the Bible’s account except some names of people! Methuselah is some sort of witchdoctor who can do magical things.
There is so much more I could say about it–so much more. And what’s with the bizarre fallen angels being living rocks helping Noah??
I suggest you join us tomorrow night for our live stream at 8 pm EST. A number of AiG researches watched the movie tonight and four of us will be on the live stream to explain what we saw and heard.
I am SO GLAD my wife did not come with me to see this–she would have been terribly upset.
I feel violated as a Christian.
Regardless of what others say–I just had to come right out and say this.
Oh–it is also a boring movie–yes boring! Worst movie I think I’ve ever seen.
That’s my personal take–join us tomorrow night for our discussion of NOAH.
The movie begins with (and has the same statement later on):
‘In there beginning there was nothing’
The Bible states ‘In the beginning God.’
That really sums up the difference!
