God’s. Not. Dead. That is a fact. Philosophers, atheists, agnostics, you name it, there are those who would refute that statement. However, those of us who have a relationship with Jesus Christ know that God exists! How do we explain our belief in a living, breathing God? A movie in the theaters right now helps answer some of those questions. “God’s Not Dead”, is the name of the movie. The main character, a freshman in a philosophy class must decide to ignore his belief system and write down on a piece of paper that ‘God Is Dead’ or defend his belief system to the professor and the class. Why? Because the professor is an atheist and does not want to even speak about the ‘myth’ concerning the deity of the Christian God. I will not give out any spoilers as I hope you will take the time to see this movie.
There are other characters and subplots in this movie as well. The stories are authentic and resonate with the audience. Several times there were cheers or applause by the audience.
The main question this movie poses is: if you believe in God, will you defend your faith? Even if it means flunking a class. Even if it means destroying a relationship with others. Is the cost of being a Christian more important than anything else in your life?
If you can answer yes, go see this movie.
If you can’t say yes, go see this movie.
If you know someone who has questions about who God is, take them and go see this movie.
Do you want to help support Christian movies at the box office so that Hollywood will see there is a demographic number supporting this kind of movie fare? Go see this movie.
You will be glad you did.
