God's not Dead

 I must say, this was my ALL time favorite movie. And I'm not just saying that because of the great acting. I'm saying it because of amazingly it represents what we should be doing in our lives.

As a christian I want to completely live my life for Christ! I've stood up for Him, even though it has cost me. So when I watched this movie, when it first came out, I was astonished and encouraged. (Although the multiple story line beginning left me spinning until I sorted it all out.)
It inspired me to really know what I believe in.
1 Peter 3;15
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear;

Let me ask you a question. Can you say with assurance that God is not dead? I'm sure nearly everybody would say "yes of course God isn't dead." But what if I asked you, "how do you know that? What proof do you have?" How would you stand then?

I don't want to let God down. I want to be ready to give an answer no matter what the question is. I've studied evolution for some time. My reason? Well how can you debate about a topic you know nothing about? See, not only do you need to be on top of knowing what you stand for, you need to know what the other person stands for.
That's what I loved about this movie. It provided amazing evidence for the Creator! And it posed some incredibly hard truths. Especially death. It's right around the corner for any of us. The question, "Are you ready?" is a tricky one.

Then the second one came out!!! And yes I loved it!!!!! The first one focused on proving God's existence from a factual point of view through the evidence of creation and other things. The second focused on proving God through history and moral questions.
So if anybody hasn't seen it, I say it's a MUST!!

P.S Stay till the very end of the credits for the second. There's a clip you need to see!! ;)

Have you seen it? Share your thoughts? Have amazing evidence for Christ? Share too! Have a question? Just ask!


  1. So true! Have you ever read The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel? It examines all the evidence that Jesus actually lived, died, and rose again, and I think it's something you would enjoy.

    1. Yes I have heard of that book and have been meaning to read it! I'm working on three other books called Cold Case for Christ, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and Man Myth Messiah. The Case for Christ will be added to my never ending To-Read list!
