Seek The Truth

by Giselle Aguiar, Award-Winning, Christian Author

Jesus said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me," and "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." (John 14:2; 3:16-17)

The theater was packed! I was not disappointed. “God’s Not Dead” delivers a powerful message.

First, I’m so happy to see a Pure Flix movie on the big screen. Usually they go straight to DVD or on TBN. The fact that the previews for it were shown before “Son of God” was God’s perfect timing as I don’t think the producers of each planned their respective releases to coincide so ideally. Great coattails to ride on!

College – where young adults go to learn. But should they learn that God’s dead? “God’s Not Dead is based on the many cases of colleges who aim to steer students away from God and their Christian beliefs and funny, God always wins in the end.

The main plot is of a Christian college student, Josh Wheaton, played by Shane Harper, who is stuck taking a philosophy class taught by Professor Jeffrey Raddison, played by Kevin Sorbo (of “Hercules” fame), a confirmed atheist. Prof. Raddison tells the 80 some students in the class to write on a piece of paper, “God is dead”. Most of them do except for Josh who refuses because he’s a Christian and he believes in God. Prof. Raddison then challenges him to prove God’s existence.

There are several powerful sub-plots like that of Amy, who discovers she has cancer; Ayisha, the Middle Eastern girl who defies her strict father; Martin, the Chinese classmate of Josh’s who’s curiosity is peaked with Josh’s defense of God; and Mina, Raddison’s live-in, way-younger-than-him, girlfriend who states that they’re “unevenly yoked”.

God’s Timing is Perfect

Things happen for a reason. Everything thing from perfectly good cars not starting to wine being left in the car to overheat, trigger cause-and-effect scenarios that could only be by divine intervention.

The powerful ending is unexpected and I won’t give it away. All I say is this is a must see! I’m overjoyed that God’s taking over Hollywood!

Oh, the Newsboys concert made me want to jump up and start singing and dancing. Here’s an older video of them singing the title song – turn up your speakers:

Can’t wait for next’s month’s release – Heaven is for Real. The book was awesome and the movie will be also.

Soli Deo Gloria!
