Noah and other Biblical adaptations
I for one won’t be rushing out to watch the movie “Noah” starring Russell Crowe or later on “Exodus” starring Christian Bale or “Mary” and I will certainly be giving “Son of God” a miss. I do not like or have any interesting in watching adaptations of the bible. The Word of God is the Truth and should never be altered for entertainment or sheer pleasure. Altering God's words is to say that we think as humans we could have done a better job. That God's words are not good enough for us. However there are Christians who will be eager to see this movie because it is based (how ever loosely) on the Bible and they see this as a positive move and a way of getting God's message to the masses.
Every word of God is pure.
From what I have read, the movie Noah strays considerably from the truth in many aspects and this is a worry. Instead of being "based on the truth", these movies, Noah included, become only a "slight resemblances of the truth" or perhaps in title only. How many people will watch Noah (or the other adaptations) and think that they are the true biblical stories. Perhaps a few will visit the bible to find out, but most won't. We are society that believes in what we are told.
Do you think this sort of film make a differences?

You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I commend you.
