I read the blog post below when it was posted. I hadn't seen the movie, only trailers, and I thought "huh? the "gospel" of prometheus"? The Gospel According to Prometheus, by Thabiti Anyabwile.
If this blog post hadn't been written by Thabiti, I would conclude that
the author was one more of those [cuckoos] who see major bible themes in every
single Hollywood movie and just ignore it. But then again, it was
So I went to see the movie today. To be perfectly honest, I wouldn't
have gone if it weren't for Thabiti's thought on it. Not my cup of tea,
all the alien disgusting stuff, I don't like that - and I am a sci-fi
fan. I close my eyes on those 'ewwww' scenes, so what's even the point?!
Anyway... don't waste your money. There's no gospel in it, but that was
expected. Men's search for a higher being, the creator, the architect,
is not a new theme and has been explored by hollywood for a long long
time, and even before that in books. But that's NOT the Gospel.
Good. The Gospel is still THE Gospel, and Hollywood is still Hollywood. I like clear distinctions.
