In the year 2014, there’s been quite a few biblical-based movies (“God’s Not Dead”, “Noah”, “Left Behind”, “Son of God”, etc.), along with a hit TV-series called “The Bible”. And while it’s great that biblical-minded movies are now coming to the big screen, it brittles my bones that the MAJORITY of these “movies” are actually NON-BIBLICAL in context.
1). In “The Bible” miniseries, WATER GETS INTO THE ARK (of Noah). And we KNOW that’s not biblical since the Lord God had Noah cover the ark with a special kind of pitch/tar so that NO WATER would get INTO the Ark!
2). In the movie “Noah”, (written and directed by an Atheist, by the way), his son HAM (the one in the bible who is the “cursed one”) is the only one worth listening to and Noah is made out to be unto a “murdering madman”, as the following Youtube user points out: http://youtu.be/VZj6h6Ejaus
3). In the movie “God’s Not Dead”, there is hardly ANY mention of Jesus Christ AT ALL, other than one “short’ scene where Kevin Zorbo accepts Jesus before he dies! All throughout the film, they refer to the Almighty as the generic label “God” (and lets face it, put broadly like that, “God” could be just about ANYONE, including Allah). And while I think it’s good that the movie was attempting to bring to light the “struggles” that modern-day college students face in the current culture of “hedonism”, I think it’s tragic that the movie hardly mentions Jesus Christ at all and doesn’t expand on and EXPLAIN the gospel of salvation better. I also think Willie Robertson and his wife should’ve played MORE of a role in the movie, instead of just a mere cameo. That would’ve added to the storyline a bit.
4). In the movie “Son of God”, one Christian Post writer puts it THIS way: “Toward the beginning of the film, the scene depicting the call of St. Peter was completely wrong. In the movie, Jesus and “Peter” go out in a boat alone together, Jesus addresses him as “Peter,” Jesus concocts a miraculous draught of fish, and “Peter” ponders whether or not to follow Jesus. In the Bible, Jesus encounters Andrew and his brother who is called Simon at that time. They were on the shore, not out in a boat. The brothers drop everything and immediately follow Jesus. The miraculous draught of fish comes later. So does Jesus’ giving him the name “Peter.” The scene depicting the Ascension was also wrong.
The Apostles certainly did not just get up after the Ascension, and start walking off to teach all nations. The Apostles actually went to the Upper Room, elected Matthias to replace Judas, and waited for the Holy Spirit. Only after the descent of the Holy Spirit, were the Apostles emboldened to go out and preach. These are some of the most dramatic scenes in the Bible, which encompass the entire book of the Acts of the Apostles. Why do these filmmakers think they need “artistic license” when they had a story as good as that? At the crucifixion, the film quite deliberately shows the soldier piercing the side of Christ, and then no blood and water pour out. Why did they make such an insane change to the story? To prove to themselves that they could. By the end of my second viewing of this film, I am left with the nagging feeling that I am being duped. The filmmakers have taken relentless and pointless liberties with the text. They did not do a single scene completely correctly”.
5). In the movies “Left Behind”, “Heaven Is For Real” and the UPCOMING movie “Exodus: Gods and Kings”, this Youtube user sheds the true light on them:
As does this following article (which admits that the parting of the Red Sea, in the movie, will be done by an earthquake and not by the hand oF Almighty God! Not to mention that Christian Bale, the actor PORTRAYING Moses in the film, called Moses a “barbaric, mercurial, schizophrenic” during a most recent pre-film-release interview! Do you support that, Christians? Do NOT go out and see or support this BLASHPHEMOUS movie this December! You have been warned!!!!!!!)
Pre-2014 “biblical movie” that ISN’T BIBLICAL:
1). “Jesus” made-for-TV-miniseries (4 hours) on DVD starring Jeremy Sisto as Jesus
There are SEVERAL biblical inaccuracies, as follows:
1). John the Baptist tells Jesus to repent of his sins. This is an abomination! For Jesus Christ HAD no sin!
2). Mother Mary had to prompt Jesus to go out into the world and “find his way”. This is wrong! Jesus Christ knew who he was from the beginning and needed no “prompting” on anyone’s part, for example, when he stayed in the heavenly Father’s house (the temple) when he was only 12 years old!
3). When father Joseph dies, Jesus gets angry and yells at God, demanding Him to bring Joseph back to life. The real Jesus would NEVER do that. He said from the beginning that everything he did was not his will, but the will of the Father in Heaven.
4). Instead of Jesus going out to greet/collect the first of his two disciples while they were fishing on the boat, the 2 disciples first come to HIM!
5). When confronted by a Gentile woman begging for help, Jesus (Jeremy Sisto) says : “this woman has taught me that my message is for the Gentiles, too” [Jesus Christ is the Lord and he NEEDS no teaching from ANY “human”!]
6). He has a romantic interest in Mary (sister of Martha) & considers marrying her [Jesus doesn’t lust!]
7). He has no siblings [a nod to the Catholic church, that claims that Mary was a perpetual virgin, even though the bible says that JESUS HAD BROTHERS AND SISTERS!]
8). He is baptized in knee-deep water with SPRINKLING, instead of FULL IMMERSION! [Another “nod” to the Catholic Church! For Jesus was actually baptized with FULL WATER IMMERSION IN THE RIVER JORDAN, IN THE BIBLE!!!!!!! Please look at Mark 1:10 in New Testament]
9). A crippled man he healed had to be helped to walk afterwards due to his atrophied muscles still being weak and painful.
10). Instead of Jesus being on the boat WITH the disciples DURING the time of the STORM, the movie shows Jesus (Jeremy Sisto) out in the middle of the ocean [during the time of the storm] walking TOWARDS the boat.
And I’m sure there’s probably more, but the for sake of space, I will just cover those 10, for now. But the point I want to try to make is that what is called “Christian” isn’t always, truly Christian. You can’t mix truth with lies! Therefore, I’m sad to say that the movie Jesus starring Jeremy Sisto, is a lie! It depicts a human, non-divine Jesus. I mean, even just looking at the video cover makes me CRINGE! It shows the actor who portrayed Jesus with his robe a little down and his chest showing, AS IF to subconsciously advertize him as some sort of “sex symbol!”
Actually, my best advice to you all is NOT to watch “Jesus movies”. Because the one I just mentioned up above is only a slew of MANY biblically inaccurate movies out there! And the producers/directors want to cry out “right of creative film-making” but the truth is, you can’t exchange the true, biblical truth of Jesus for a lie! [Revelation 22:18-19]
But, IN GENERAL, when you listen to “Christian” music or videos on Youtube or read “Christian” magazine articles or blogs, or watch “Christian” movies on Netflix, etc., ask yourself if that music, video, book, article, blog is truly “biblical” or not. Because believe it or not, there are many things in Christian movies that actually go AGAINST the bible. Especially with all the NEW “biblical-based” movies coming out! Don’t go out to support these movies! Instead, READ YOUR BIBLE, KING JAMES VERSION and “support” a true, spiritual relationship with our Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ Almighty, INSTEAD!
These new slew of bible-based movies that TWIST THE SCRIPTURES ****NEEDS TO STOP****! And from now on, producers shouldn’t make another bible based movie UNLESS they can make a 100% ACCURATE one, based on the Authorized King James Version bible! End of story.
The problem with many Christians and Americans today is that we’re too quick to run out and see a “bible-based movie” without really knowing what it’s all about. And then, we Americans become lazy and the “movie itself” becomes our “bible”! Please, people, please, I beg of you! DISCERNMENT! We all need more spiritual DISCERNMENT when it comes to these things.
I wonder how many people went out and saw Noah, expecting it to be a “family-friendly film” or “100% biblically accurate”, just like I’m also now wondering how many “Christians” out there are going to run out and see the movie called “Exodus: God and Kings”, not EVEN being aware that IN the movie, the Red Sea will be PARTED BY AN ***EARTHQUAKE***, and not by God’s own divine hand and also that the actor PLAYING Moses sees Moses as a “schizophrenic, barbaric, madman” (WHICH IS BLASPHEMY TO THE HIGHEST DEGREE & NOT EVEN BIBLICALLY ACCURATE AT ALL!)
But yet, we are INDEED living in a time when the Luciferian establishment wants to STOP AT NOTHING to PROFANE the gospel for the sake of PSYCHOLOGICAL PROGRAMMING OF THE MASSES and for $$$$ PROFIT! Think about it, folks! Do you REALLY think that “Hellywood” would want these bible-based movies coming forth if they SPOKE THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST and told the 100% accurate BIBLICAL TRUTH? OFCOURSE NOT!!!!!!! They want to deceive the masses! (And if you ask ME, it seems they’re doing a rather “nice” job of it these days, with this “slew” of PROFANE/inaccurate bible-based movies coming out!
Newsflash: Christianity will NOT have any sort of “spiritual revival”. They (the powers that be in this country) are preparing the masses for the psychological/mental/emotional programming for the ONE WORLD ORDER SYSTEM. And it seems many “Christians” today are being led like sheep to the slaughter since they won’t INVESTIGATE these movies, these music groups, these TV shows to see if what the movie/tv show claims is REALLY in the bible or not. They’re also not bothering to investigate rather the modern-day “church practices” practiced in today’s church, in and of ITSELF, are biblical. WAKE UP, PEOPLE! WAKE UP! DO YOUR RESEARCH! DO YOUR RESEARCH NOW, WHILE YOU STILL CAN (while all the information out there’s still freely available to you!)
