Principles For Teaching Yourself Visual Art

After spotting an article on Medium that said, “Attending art school is a waste of your money”, Chiara knew the author had to be interesting. He is.... and so we're really glad to have him here on GiveGetWin.

On Seeing "Noah"

On Blue Ridge Ramblings...

We rarely go to the movies; it's expensive and all too often we leave disappointed in what we've seen. When a highly anticipated film opens we sometimes make an exception; "Noah" was such an event. Sadly, we were disappointed again.

We're Christians. Snake-handling lunatics? Poison-sipping crazies? No. We ARE regular churchgoers who take fairly active roles in church activities. Our goal in life is to live in as Christ-like a manner as we can. We know we'll never reach that goal, but we try.

Hollywood has produced some wonderful movies about the Bible. Not one of them has been 100% accurate so far as I know, and "Noah" certainly isn't. In my opinion it's science fiction based very, very loosely on the Bible's account of the Great Flood.

Numerous people have commented that the film has to fictionalize or embellish the story in order to fill out a full-length feature film. Maybe so. You can read the Biblical account of Noah in five minutes, tops. Unfortunately, this movie carries the embellishment a little too far for me. At the end of the Book of Revelations is a stern warning against changing so much as one word of the Scriptures... and this movie changes far more than that.

If people see the film and it interests them enough that they read and discuss the Biblical account, then the movie has done a wonderful thing. However, if the film makes people believe the Bible is science fiction... well, that's another story.
