God’s not dead, is a good movie. I enjoyed it, but was let down by some points in the movie. All in all, a movie with a good message.
The main thrust of the movie is to let the world know that God is not dead inspite of what science, philosophy and society might say. In the current environment of political correctness it’s refreshing to see that this message is getting out there.
The storyline of the main character was fairly well developed, but the stories of the minor characters were lacking.
As always with such films I found things that disappointed me, such as a deathbed confession and the sinners prayer. To portray such things as what God wants from us is misleading at best. God wants obedience to his word and the deathbed confession should not be portrayed as one coming to true faith. Certainly the sinners prayer is not obedience, it can’t be because it simply doesn’t exist in the Bible.
I am thankful that faith based movies are being produced and played in local theaters. The message is getting out there that Christians are and will continue practice their faith despite the attempts of some to silence the Christian masses.
Invite someone to see it with you, it will give you a chance for some great conversation about God’s existence and what faith in God is.
