A Flood of Truth - Part 3 – Stability in Rough Seas - Anchored by Truth - May 11, 2021 by Wave 94 published on 2021-05-11T14:39:29Z The widespread awareness of the story of Noah and the ark is both a curse and blessing. It’s a blessing because the story may draw people to the Bible and that’s a good thing. But it’s a curse because so many of the artistic depictions we see of the story in home goods or art pieces, especially the ones created for children, result in the genuine story of God’s grace being transformed into something that more closely resembles a fairy tale. And this has been especially true of some of Hollywood’s retelling of the story where so-called artistic liberty is used to add elements, characters, or events that have nothing to do with the Biblical original. So, if people haven’t studied the original and authentic story in the Bible what happens is there’s a sort of fictional version that gets embedded in the popular consciousness. This demeans the historicity of the original and unfortunately reduces the inspiration and relevance the original story actually contains.
