Yes, This is Real (It is in South Athens, Georgia)
My daughter sent this to me on my phone this morning. I had to verify it on Google Maps. Yep, it's real. I shall leave it to you to interpret as you see fit.

"My salvation comes from Him!" Psalm 62:1
I see many wonders in God's salvation. It is as many-sided as the ocean with its moods and waves.
There is the wonder of its origin. From HIM it takes its rise and source--oh pregnant pronoun!
From the King against whom I have revolted.
From the Friend whose wishes I have opposed.
From the thrice-holy One, to whom the smallest of my sins is absolutely hateful.
From the Father on whom I have turned my back.
It is He who approaches me with the white flag of peace.
It is He who sacrifices Himself to accomplish my deliverance!
And there is the wonder of its continuousness. Salvation keeps coming--it does not cease. It flows, and deepens, and broadens. God does not weary, though there are ten thousand reasons why He should. The Savior does not lose His sympathy and grace. The Holy Spirit goes on performing His good work. It is an "eternal salvation". Hebrews 5:9
And there is the wonder of its object. It is MY salvation--mine, incredible as that may seem. It is a miracle to me that my past guilt should be pardoned--such a terrible criminality there was in my heart. It is a miracle to me that my present imperfections should be borne with and overcome. Such a forbearing, conquering patience I need--for I am the chief of sinners!
And there is the wonder of its abundance. It is SALVATION which comes to me. Salvation is a palace with many rooms in it. It is a landscape in which many different elements of beauty are found--mountain, and river, and lush pasture-ground, and darker forest, and the silver streak of the sea.
I think of salvation from the divine side--and how much it cost God!
I think of salvation from the human side--and how much it brings to me!
"Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!" 2 Corinthians 9:15
Noah’s producer, Darren Aronofsky, once said, “All of my charity work has always been about the environment,” so I can understand why he thought that the biblical narrative is about saving innocent animals. But what was he thinking when he had Noah build the ark with the help of a rock group? These embarrassingly absurd rock people stomp around almost every scene of the first half of the movie. From a production viewpoint, I expected better and more sensible motion graphics for such a big budget movie.
From a biblical viewpoint Noah himself is about as far away from the Noah of the Bible as he could get. Perhaps the best way to describe him and what he does in the movie would be to liken it to Hollywood doing a movie about Napoleon, and portraying him as a tall Japanese-speaking crocodile hunter, who was into sky-diving and Russian roulette.
However, there's something more sinister about the production of this movie. It's more than just a grown man with a childish imagination playing with an expensive toy. It is the blatant mischaracterization of a man of God in an attempt to undermine the authority of the Word of God. If Hollywood's “Noah” is a financial success, I suspect that a sequel will be a blasphemous mischaracterization of Jesus and His work on the cross. As with “Noah,” this will be given a pass by many professing Church leaders who are mesmerized by the glitter of Hollywood. These are dark times indeed.
Yet my fading hope is that if Hollywood ever sees fit to portray another biblical figure, they will get it right. They can have their poetic licence, but they must stay faithful to the script revealed in the Scriptures. If they do that, I will encourage Christians everywhere to flood the theaters, and I'm sure I'm not alone in that conviction.
In the meanwhile, I am encouraged that over 150,000 people freely saw our version of "Noah" in just over two days since its recent release. May those who have a "Noah" craving, get their fix at www.NoahTheMovie.com
