Whenever the Word of God goes out into the atmosphere, great things happen - including spiritual warfare. A clash of systems is about to hit this planet when those two movies go public. Son of God tells the powerful story of Jesus Christ, the Son of God Who became Man, so He could identify with His Creation - thus willingly give His Life that He may SAVE those who repent and believe.
Word of mouth will carry this movie to "Passion of the Christ" status - off the charts. After watching the entire Burnett-Downey "The Bible" series and following the worldwide reaction on Twitter especially....and combining that with the most popular smartphone/tablet app in the world YOUVERSION, interest in the timeless Word of God is now at a peak! This movie will take this interest to a new level. What makes this movie authentic is the humility of its producers, who surrounded themselves with prayer warriors and pastors looking to tell the true story.
Secondly Aronofsky's mission seems to be modern American low-rent lies and political correctness. It is not accident this movie looks like one of those Batman Dark Knight episodes, starring a man who hates God - Russell Crowe, who does NOT look 500 plus years old. We know that God had promised that He would not destroy the earth until the great Methuselah died. In fact the name Methuselah means "his death shall bring Judgment"! This Hollywood "dark knight" version is more about the leftist's favorite religious cult of "environmentalism and overpopulation"....or "climate change and abortion"! What in the world does this have to do with the account that begins in Genesis 6??!!
There are more Bible based movies to come apart from these two, in coming months. The next major one is EXODUS (the story of Moses) starring Christian Bale and another called Mary, Mother of God with Ben Kingsley. We shall see how these pan out. In the Christian world, movies rise or fall on word of mouth. When Noah (and others come out, we shall see what the "word on the street is"). I plan to see both, to be both fair and authentic, as far as any criticism of Noah. Paramount is nervous about any backlash and may be correcting course on this as we speak. So all of this public discourse on the Noah Movie pre-pub could result in a better movie. Let's hope....
