The new “Noah” film is coming out soon and its stirring some controversy. Some who have seen early screenings are saying that it does not line up with the biblical account. Paramount has been marketing this film big to the christian audience but the films director Darren Aronofsky told The New Yorker, “‘Noah’ is the least biblical biblical film ever made…”.

Some christian leaders are not recommending the film.

Paramount’s website says, “While artistic license has been taken, we believe that this film is true to the essence, values and integrity of a story that is a cornerstone of faith for millions of people worldwide.”

Off course Hollywood is going to give their own interpretation of the story. That’s what they always do but i’m still going to see it. When it comes down to it the story of Noah is relatively short so there are parts where we don’t know specifics of what happened. As someone who follows the bible, I am going to read Genesis(the first book of the bible) before seeing it and then I will have good perspective of how accurate the film is to the biblical account. That’s all a christian can do.

The story of Noah is an important part of the Christian faith. Remember the words of Jesus:

“When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day.  In those days before the flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat.  People didn’t realize what was going to happen until the flood came and swept them all away. That is the way it will be when the Son of Man comes.”

-Jesus (Matthew 24:37)
