God’s Not Dead (the song & movie)

Music HighwayLast week, on July 30, 2014, my wife and I watched the movie, God’s Not Dead, which the church we attend presented to the public. The hall room was full to overflowing. So many people showed up at the door that the pastor is considering a second future showing for those who had to leave because of a lack of seating.

As I watched the movie about a freshman college student being challenged to deny his faith in God, I could not help but have flashbacks of when I was a freshman at Central Connecticut State University. Two professors challenged my belief in God while I was there – although not as visiously as the one portrayed in this movie.

Although my views from my soteriology (the study of salvation) somewhat differs from that of the movie (see my previous post, I Wish I Were A Universalist!),  that is a minor point since knowing every detail about what may or may not happen is not required for salvation. Accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and repenting of and from  your sins is what saves people. Having a relationship with Christ and walking by His grace is what really matters.

Anyway, the arguments in the debate about the existence of God by the college student in the film was just superb. It was what made this movie worth watching. I will need to watch it again, and again and again. The film was released as DVD to the public on August 5, 2014.

The YouTube video below, is about the song and the band, Newsboys, who are in the film.

Do not miss watching the movie if you have not done so. And let no one tell you that God does not exist. God’s not dead!

Let love explode and bring the dead to life
A love so bold to see a revolution somehow

Let love explode and bring the dead to life
A love so bold to bring a revolution somehow

Album -2012

Now I’m lost in Your freedom
In this world I’ll overcome

[2x]
My God’s not dead
He’s surely alive
He’s living on the inside
Roaring like a lion

Roaring, He’s roaring, roaring like a lion

Let hope arise and make the darkness hide
My faith is dead I need a resurrection somehow

Now I’m lost in Your freedom
In this world I’ll overcome

Kevin Sorbo, the college professor in the film, God’s Not Dead, also starred as Hercules in the TV series, Hercules: The Legendary Journey, 1995-1999.

[2x]
My God’s not dead
He’s surely alive
He’s living on the inside
Roaring like a lion

Roaring, He’s roaring, roaring like a lion
He’s roaring, He’s roaring

[3x]
Let heaven roar
And fire fall
Come shake the ground
With the sound
Of revival

[4x]
My God’s not dead
He’s surely alive
He’s living on the inside
Roaring like a lion

He’s roaring, He’s roaring, He’s roaring like a lion [2x]
