-Why I Won’t Be Seeing ‘Avatar’ Anytime Soon

I hear a lot of my Christian friends talking about what a great movie ‘Avatar’ is. However, I won’t be seeing it anytime soon even though I am an avid Sci-Fi fan and would no doubt love the movie.

Though I’ve heard that the film has an obvious ‘climate change’ bias with the ‘techies’ being the bad guys which is ironic considering that Cameron used the most advanced technology available producing this movie in the first place. I wonder how many ‘carbon credits’ he would have actually owed if he had bothered to keep track.

Nevertheless, I won’t being seeing the movie anytime soon because I don’t want to support James Cameron -the director of the film. Yea, I know he’s going to make $100’s of millions from this film and my ticket wouldn’t really mean a thing. It is just the principle of thing—I don’t want to contribute to him in any way period.

Why? Because of what he might do with all that money in the future.

I can’t believe that so many Christians have forgotten so soon that Cameron instigated, bankrolled, and starred in an anti-Christian archaeological hoax and supposed ‘documentary’ that came out in March 2007 during Easter week:

The Lost Tomb of Jesus

Here’s a few links to what I had to say about that complete travesty at the time just to refresh your memory:

    How does one love an enemy or bless those who persecute? We have nothing to fear by documentaries like Cameron’s, (Truth is a Living Person – He’s alive!) so why not bless him instead? Build friendships that give a foundation for a dialogue.
    As for Avatar, I think the real culprit was greed and imperialism (in this film expressed as ‘we can take what we want’) which is a passion that is at the core of the sinful heart. (lust of the eyes, pride of heart, etc.) I have no problem with him making *that* the bad guy. The enemy in the film is not presented to be technology as much as technology that is used to dominate another race, and is used to destroy creation.
    As it has been said, how one handles something says a lot about what they think of its creator.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who remembers this.

    I’ve never been impressed with Cameron’s movies, anyway … they tend to get hyped, people tell me I’m going to love them, then I endure “True Lies” or “Terminator.” Bah! (I couldn’t make it through “Titanic.”)

    But, seriously … why would we want to support him?

    Well said.
