What’s More Biblical Than the Rapture Movie Left Behind? Christian Blogger Nominates Shrek and Austin Powers

Patheos blogger and Jesus follower Benjamin Corey wasn’t expecting much from the new Nicolas Cage end-times movie Left Behind. And at the Friday premiere, that’s exactly what he got, he says:

The movie was impressively horrible — infinitely worse than I had expected. As I said yesterday on That God Show, there’s some really compelling events in the pre-millennial view of eschatology, and you could make some incredibly entertaining movies about it. Unfortunately, this wasn’t one of them. Beyond being a movie with a lousy plot-line, cheesy stereotypes, and crappy special effects, the movie was simply unbiblical.

So Corey (who, full disclosure, is a good friend of mine) came up with a tongue-in-cheek list of 10 movies that are more biblical than Left Behind — including Shrek, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Wedding Crashers, and Austin Powers.

What’s so biblical about Shrek? A talking donkey, that’s what. There’s a talking donkey in Shrek, and a talking donkey in the Bible (Num 22:28), so that makes Shrek more biblical than Left Behind.

Of course, many non-believers think that every religious book, Corey’s favorite one included, is essentially this movie title.
