Hollywood’s Biblical Epic ‘Noah’ Doesn’t Mention ‘God’ Once in Entire 139 Minute Runtime

Hollywood’s Biblical Epic ‘Noah’ Doesn’t Mention ‘God’ Once in Entire 139 Minute Runtime

Many in the faith-based community are already proclaiming a refusal to spend money on Hollywood’s Noah over stated inaccuracies and focus on parts of the story that depict Noah in a negative way instead of the good. Another segment of movie goers are upset the movie apparently has heavy environmental overtones.

The latest news coming from early reviewers is certain to ruffle even more feathers as the movie plans for a national launch in the states. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie doesn’t mention God.

Already banned in some Middle Eastern countries, Noah will rile some for the complete omission of the name “God” from the dialogue, others for its numerous dramatic fabrications and still more for its heavy-handed ecological doomsday messages, which unmistakably mark it as a product of its time. 

Why Hollywood would omit the word God from a story about God is beyond me.

    Was looking forward to seeing this movie. But to leave out Gods name in a movie about Noah is not a movie I want to spend my money on.

    This isn’t actually such a big deal. In some Jewish traditions, “God” as a name is held in such high esteem that the name is not permitted to be spoken. Read this for more clarification: http://bit.ly/1gcb8Dn

    Cos the libtards have stolen the story of Noah and repurposed it as environazi propaganda.

    How DISAPPOINTING is THAT????? FINALLY, I thought, a movie that would be GOOD to see…something to spark discussions. The whole movie is about GOD. WHY would they leave that out. Makes me very suspect of their motives. Will have to rethink going to it.

    to the author: “Another segment of movie goers are upset the movie apparently has heavy environmental overtones.” this sentence is wrong, dude. it should read ‘another segment of movie goers IS upset…’ as the ‘be’ verb is determined by the the subject, ‘segment,’ and not the prepositional phrase, ‘of movie goers.’

    • Matthew Miller

      Good catch! I didn’t see that. And for the record, it is quite disturbing to see a Bible-based movie omit ‘God’ from its entirety. Just another example of liberals trying to separate God from his own works (Bible, creation, and otherwise).

    In the words of Hollywood director, scriptwriter and film professional Brian Godawa:

    All in all, the script for Noah is an uninteresting and unBiblical waste of a hundred and fifty million dollars that will ruin for decades the possibility of making a really great and entertaining movie of this Bible hero beloved by billions of religious believers, Jewish, Christian, and Muslim. This movie will be rejected by millions of devoted Bible readers worldwide because once again it subverts their own sacred narrative with a political agenda of pagan earth religion that is offensive to their Faith. In a very real sense it engages in the very sin of the primeval history in Genesis: A denial of the image of God in man.

    If Noah is released, and as I am predicting, does horrible numbers at the box office after being rejected by traditionalist Christians and Jews (in spite of the studio undoubtedly hiring faith-based marketing companies to spin it as “faithful”) as well as mainstream viewers who will instead choose whatever feel-good movie is in theaters that week, studio executives will gather in their suites on Monday morning and cluck about the elusive faith-based audience and how they never turn out for “their movies,” when it was in fact a movie made by someone outside of their community that was insulting, degrading and contrary to their deeply held beliefs and values.

    WOW! It amazes me…how can you leave God out of ANYTHING….especially a movie about the Bible? Goes to show a CHRISTIAN “DID NOT” make this film!!! This Christian will not waste her money on this piece of garbage! If a movie is about a TRUTH…Hollywood…you need to stick to that truth and quit putting YOUR 2 CENTS in it!! You can’t change the truth about the Bible…to many people BELIEVE & KNOW THAT IS THE ONLY TRUTH!!!!

    Watch Noah the Movie instead by Living Waters productions on the same day. Will be on YouTube. They both run the same day on the 28th.

    God is not mentioned in the book of Esther either but it’s still consider canon and included in the Bible. Even though it’s never mentioned there, you can definitely see God’s hand moving in delivering the Jews through several persecutions and by the actions of Esther. Now, that being said, I’m very worried about the complete lack of the mention of God in the movie. While it’s possible I’ll leave the movie saying; “Wow, that really showed how Noah was relying on God to deliver him from this tragedy.” but I kinda of doubt I will. I’ve still not completely decided if I’m going to go see it or not. I don’t think it’s going to be a movie I’ll completely boycott but I’m not sure I want to pay a premium price for it either.

    It’s a film based on a 2000 year old account of events that have been told and retold for centuries. To expect it to conform to a single idea or point of view is a bit…ignorant.

    Why not look at it like this….as Christians do you want a film that is made to speak to and entertain Christians or would you rather have a film that is designed to appeal to non-Christians in an effort to get them curious about The Word. Ideally the film will do both but we don’t live in an ideal world.

    If this film does it’s job it will move people. Like all good art it will spark emotion and thought. And just maybe it will bring people to the Lord. You don’t send missionaries to civilized Christian lands do you? Then why make a big budget film that will only speak to Christians? Let the movie do it’s work. And when people start flocking to your churches out of curiosity THEN you start to educate them and nurture their faith.

    It amazes me how judgmental Christians can be sometimes. You people haven’t even seen the film yet and you’re already judging it’s worth.

    Wouldn’t it be great if “God’s Not Dead” with a very limited budget did better than “Noah”

    just saw Noah…..it was an incredible movie, it might not have said G-d, but it says The Creator, He, etc…..can’t wait to own it on Blu-ray DVD……..great cast, great story line…..great ending……if you are not going to go because it doesn’t say a certain word, then don’t……….I thought it was an awesome movie and I am Jewish…………it did not offend me at all……..
