No, I didn’t mis-post my Sunday morning Reflect, Recharge and Relax. This is about an AWESOME movie that my hubby and I saw the other day. This was our first trip back to the movies since he got sick. Tuesday lunch and mid-day movies was our date night – this is our special time to focus on each other. No computers, I even turn my cell phone on vibrate and leave it in my purse. Amazing, right?
This week, Rob wanted to pick a movie that he thought both of us would enjoy. I have to admit that sometimes I go because he wants to see a movie and most of the time, I do end up enjoying it. This one was one that both of us wanted to see. I mean it had to be good if the Newboys were singing in it right? Rob had watched the trailer – which is how he picks movies and off we went to a late afternoon movie date.
All I can say is WOW! This is such an awesome movie and the music is good too. Here is the synopsis on the movie:
Present-day college freshman and devout Christian, Josh Wheaton (Shane Harper), finds his faith challenged on his first day of Philosophy class by the dogmatic and argumentative Professor Radisson (Kevin Sorbo). Radisson begins class by informing students that they will need to disavow, in writing, the existence of God on that first day, or face a failing grade. As other students in the class begin scribbling the words “God Is Dead” on pieces of paper as instructed, Josh find himself at a crossroads, having to choose between his faith and his future. Josh offers a nervous refusal, provoking an irate reaction from his smug professor. Radisson assigns him a daunting task: if Josh will not admit that “God Is Dead,” he must prove God’s existence by presenting well-researched, intellectual arguments and evidence over the course of the semester, and engage Radisson in a head-to-head debate in front of the class. If Josh fails to convince his classmates of God’s existence, he will fail the course and hinder his lofty academic goals. With almost no one in his corner, Josh wonders if he can really fight for what he believes. Can he actually prove the existence of God? Wouldn’t it just be easier just to write “God Is Dead” and put the whole incident behind him? GOD’S NOT DEAD weaves together multiple stories of faith, doubt and disbelief, culminating in a dramatic call to action. The film will educate, entertain, and inspire moviegoers to explore what they really believe about God, igniting important conversations and life-changing decisions.
I encourage everyone to go see this movie… Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
