Exodus The Movie: not biblical and therefore not an accurate historical and biblical portrayal

Less than a faithful telling of the event of the Exodus and events that lead up to it, is frankly, a lie.

"When Moses learns his true identity, he is reluctant to play the role of savior, and he finds a comfortable home in a remote village, where he marries and has a son. But his destiny calls when he comes upon the famous burning bush and is approached by God to lead his people out of slavery. Here is the film’s most controversial choice, for God appears to Moses as a fierce child. Although this may offend some devout viewers, it’s actually far more interesting than the booming offscreen voice that DeMille used in his version of the story. This divine child seems angry and vengeful rather than a benign Buddha figure, but one could argue that this is in keeping with the Old Testament God of wrath.

The film hits its peak in the sequence recounting the 10 plagues. The savage crocodiles were not in the Old Testament, but as they attack humans as well as fish, they turn the Nile blood red, which is at least an ingenious explanation of how the river might have turned to blood. Frogs, boils and locusts are truer to the text and are rendered in luscious visual detail."

(Reminds me of "The Shack" book, where its god is a woman. This is reminicent of the RCC and it's eternal infant "Jesus" sitting on Mary and her throne.)
Deu 4:1 "And now, O Israel, listen to the statutes and the rules that I am teaching you, and do them, that you may live, and go in and take possession of the land that the LORD, the God of your fathers, is giving you.
Deu 4:2 You shall not add to the word that I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the LORD your God that I command you.
Rev 22:18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, 19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.

The God of Scripture is a precise God and we are never to handle His Word as trivial, as if it's just a textbook we can fiddle with, without consequence. To tell the true events of Exodus, one MUST stick to what the Bible ACTUALLY says, otherwise, it's untrue and mere imagination of men who hate Christ Jesus.
