Re: "Noah"  (Disney movie shown on ABC Sep19,99)

Just another sign of the times. Tony Danza is a "fun" actor to watch. I
used to like the series "Who's the Boss". And as an actor, he did a
"fitting" job on this movie as "Norman". I typically don't watch Disney
movies anymore because they have all become so New Age and pro-sin. But
when the name "Noah" went across the screen, I had to watch it, as I
did the other recent movie "Noah's Ark"; to see -what- they would do
with it.

It approached the "flood" as though it was a 20th century event about
to happen. Norman, a construction boss, driving around in his pickup
truck, ends up building an "ark" using modern construction techniques,
with bolts, electric lights, modern kitchen, etc. and also includes a
basketball court in the design for his son.

The full significance of the characters is not readily seen until the
very end as they are -in- the ark, and then again, after the rain has
stopped.

The person -speaking- to Noah-Norman is a Ferengy-Grand-Nagis sounding,
whiny little coot, named "Zak". (I find it interesting that they chose
a name starting with the -last- letter of the alphabet.) Manipulative.
As we know from Genesis, it was "God" who spoke to Noah. So, would we
understand this whiny character to be their rendition of "God"?

But he, Zak, had a "boss" above him. And at the end it was revealed 
that this "boss" was a "she", who was changing her mind, deciding 
instead of merely "testing" Noah-Norman, to actually -have- a flood. As
they joked about a -woman- "changing her mind".

There was no mention of any -reason- for the flood. God's reason to
wipe out the evil of humanity as he had corrupted the earth. That fact,
combined with the -female- deity flightily changing her mind, certainly
goes along with today's world's idea of God's indiscriminacy. His
haphazard nature of zapping people at will; which quality they accuse
Christians of attributing to God.

Also, the female "boss" is another "god" -above- God. Satan said, "I
will be compared to the Most High." (Is14:14) And, indeed, ever since
Isis of Egypt, Queen of Heaven of the Canaanites, the Madonna of Rome,
and ultimately the New Age god "she", the world has placed their
Nimrod-originated female deity above God.

And finally, as the storm is beginning and Norman's family is going to
the ark, Norman also invites his friends and work associates to join
them in the ark. Zak shows up and tells Norman that, "No, only his
family can go into the ark." And Norman refuses to obey that directive.
Saying that all these people are his "family", and thus, can come into
the ark. That there's room for all of them.

So, there you have it. God, just on some feminine "whim" decides to
have a flood. But it's not for any "reason". There is no sin or
wickedness, for which reason people are being judged. And in the end,
everybody "makes it", because we are all "family". Even the crooked,
perverse scoundrels.

Isn't that what the world is promoting? Children do no wrong, and don't
need discipline and correcting. Criminals are not "bad", but sick, so
shouldn't be punished. And since they don't believe in hell anyway,
only heaven, everybody will get there, eventually, in their own way.
Just like the song, "Everything is beautiful in it's own way..." As 
Touched by an Angel proclaims, "we're all God's children."

Even those purporting to be "Christians" proclaim these same doctrines.  
As the Martins sing, "there's enough room...come on home, come on 
in...it doesn't matter where you've been" while not also proclaiming 
the need for repentance.  Or, like the website someone asked for my 
opinion about recently, their KJV-only statement of faith blatantly 
proclaims that salvation does NOT include "sorrow" or "being sorry" for 
one's sins. I guess they just have not seen Scriptures like James 4:8-9 
"Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, 
sinners! And purify your hearts, double minded ones!  Be distressed, 
and mourn, and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your 
joy into shame."

"The heart is deceitful above all things, and it is incurable; who can
know it? (Jer17:9) God who was "a swift witness against the sorcerers,
and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against
those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the
fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear
not me, saith the LORD of hosts" also says, "For I am Jehovah, I change
not..." (Mal3:5-6) While He does extend mercy on those who repent and
whose names are in the Book of Life; those who are not found in the
Book -will- be judged according to their works and be cast into the
Lake of Fire. (Rev20:13-14) Because everybody will -NOT- "make it" into
heaven. Everybody is -NOT- part of God's "family". There is -NOT- "room
enough" for those "..all profaning...or any making an abomination or a
lie...

 ...but only the ones having been written in the Book of Life of the
Lamb.  (Rev21:27)  ..having come through "repentance toward God and
faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.. (Acts20:21)

You may have also been deceived all this time. "Truly, then, God
overlooking the times of ignorance, now strictly commands all men
everywhere to repent," (Acts17:30)

Amen!
