So, I don’t make a big point of this in the blog (since that is not what the blog’s focus is), but I am a Christian. I believe in God and Jesus Christ. This is my opinion of the following two movies.
So, a few weeks ago we rented (from Redbox) the ‘Noah’ movie. I thought I knew what the movie was about before we rented it (and thought the husband would like it), but I was wrong. As the husband said it was a general movie (with violent scenes) with a guy named Noah. I was happy to hear that a non-Christian felt led to make the movie, but the only redeeming feature (to me) was hopefully someone will actually read the true Noah (and the Ark) accounts in the Bible.
Now, onto the movie I rented last night from Redbox. The movie I rented was ‘God’s Not Dead’ by Pure Flix. I knew it was on my ‘to rent’ list, but after ‘Noah’ I was a little nervous that we would not like it. I loved this movie (there are some sad parts, but they were needed). A college freshman has to defend (with scientific facts, etc) that God is not dead.
I think it is a good movie for everyone (not just Christians). A key point: If you don’t have faith in God then what do you have faith in?
Also, it doesn’t help that Newsboys is one of my favorite Christian music groups (and we actually got to see them once live in concert). The ‘God’s Not Dead’ song was a favorite of mine before I even knew a movie was coming out with that title.
So, if I had to suggest one of these movies to someone it would be ‘God’s Not Dead’. And, I think I will be looking for movies put out by Pure Flix in the future.
