I do now understand why people are being put off or upset against this movie…It isn’t based on what is written on the scriptures.
The movie is purely a heresy and blasphemy - unbiblical.
I’ve found new word described by one of the critique who reviewed this movie (though he’s not a christian), he said: "Luciferism was vividly depicted". Luciferism is when rebellion against our Creator is portrayed as noble or sympathic in nature. In this case, this is literally true. The Watchers (the name given to demons in the Book of Enoch and this film) “wanted to help man” because they “took pity on them,” but God cast them out for disobeying his orders.
The actors are really good. Same with the visual effects. But the teachings and writings on the Holy Scripture should not be changed like Ham wanders off alone without a wife; the animals are put to sleep in the Ark; the animals are not two by two and boarded together; Methuselah is portrayed as Shaman; only Shem has a wife; etc.
The list of inaccuracies is too long to list here. It is easier to portray what was accurate. First, there is a guy called Noah. He builds an Ark with animals. The fountains of the deep accompany the rain waters and hurricanes are seen encompassing the Earth. Most everything else has no relationship to the Bible, at all.
So Noah gets Noah wrong, gets the environment wrong, gets evolution wrong, gets angelology wrong, and gets some biblical details wrong. Compounding these problems, add the fact that none of these negatives can be deduced from watching the previews that have been released.
Given these facts, and facts they are, the movie trailer may feel like a “bait and switch” to Jews and Christians. For instance, in the trailer where Noah says, “I am not alone,” he is not talking about God. You’ll see.
So, what do I think Christians should do—go see it, ask our church to buy up block-seating, protest, or boycott it?
