God's Not Dead

Mike and I just returned from the movie, God's Not Dead. We had a lot of people recommend to us that we go see it and I'm very glad that we did. I really enjoyed myself!

This movie certainly isn't the run-of-the-mill Hollywood production.  Let's be honest, Hollywood isn't much enamored with the Christian Faith. In fact, my experience has been many people are ok with a person being a Christian but they don't want us to much talk about it.

I'm not going to tell you much about the movie but at the end, everyone is encouraged to text everyone they know with these words, "God's Not Dead".  Have any of you received such a text?  Or maybe seen it on Facebook? Now you know where that came from. It's Christians letting you know they have faith in God the Father.

I am sure everyone who goes to this movie is not a Christian. If you are not a Christian, I'd encourage you to see it. I don't know that seeing the movie is going to convert a non-believer, but it may help them better understand the Christians in their life.

I really enjoyed Kevin Sorbo in this movie. Remember him, Hercules? I'm currently reading a book written by Kevin Sorbo. I'll do a book report later...stay tuned.

Newsboys are featured in this movie as well.  In honor of their part in the movie, I'm going to leave you with this...
