In Noah, the giants, called “watchers,” chop down the wood for the massive ark and defend it from an invading army.
All this made for some great digital effects, but the Bible says God cast these disobedient angels into hell (2 Pet.
2:4), not to earth, and they certainly weren’t sent here to help mankind.6.
Noah was not a deranged killer bent on stopping his family from reproducing. After the flood begins, the man God uses to save all animals and humans from destruction decides God doesn’t want the human race to survive.
Despite some amazing special effects, a talented cast and a full-scale replica of Noah’s ark, the film is convoluted, bizarre and blasphemous. Noah’s director, Darren Aronofsky, told The New Yorker that his movie is “the least-biblical biblical film ever made.” His goal all along was to create an alternative version of the Genesis story—one that is more in line with ancient gnostic heresies than with the Bible.
Noah didn’t drink hallucinogenic tea to hear God’s directions. Aronofsky adds preposterous drama to Noah by having the evil warlord Tubal-Cain (Ray Winstone) sneak on board the ark and hide in the shadows near sleeping bears and goats.
In the film, Noah visits his grandfather, Methuselah (Anthony Hopkins), who helps him understand that a global catastrophe is coming. In Aronofsky’s fanciful version, only one of Noah’s sons, Shem, has a wife (played by Emma Watson)—and she ends up pregnant with twin girls who, we assume, will eventually become wives for Noah’s other two sons. In the Genesis account, God tells Noah: “You shall enter the ark—you and your sons and your wife, and your sons’ wives with you” (Gen. He then attempts to kill Noah with the help of Noah’s son Ham—who is angry that his dad didn’t arrange to find him a wife before the rain started.5.
Paul David Tripp metaphorically likens our world to an old, broken-down house: The world you live in is a lot like that broken-down house. You see it in the environment, blighted by pollution and misuse.
Every single room has been dirtied and damaged by sin. You see it in government, often focused more on caring for itself than on serving the people.
