God's Not Dead 2

When a teacher is asked about Jesus in class, her response lands her in deep trouble. It could mean not only losing her job, but losing everything. Think that could not happen? Think again. The closing credits of God's Not Dead 2 list all the similar cases which this movie was based upon.

God's Not Dead 2 is another outstanding film from Pure Flix. Great story, great actors, great production. Appearances by the Newsboys, as well as notable authors such as Lee Strobel and J. Warner Wallace enhance the film.

One attribute of the movie that I enjoyed is that it gave an explanation of the common misconception "Separation of church and state". Secularists often claim "Separation of church and state" appears in our Constitution or Bill of Rights. They are wrong.

The phrase "Separation of church and state" was taken from a letter Thomas Jefferson sent to the Baptist Association of Danbury, Connecticut, shortly after Jefferson became President. Jefferson believed that the government should be powerless to interfere with religious freedom and expression. Hence, the origin of "Separation of church and state" was born.

Another aspect of the film I loved was that it brought up Jesus Christ as a historical figure who existed and that is a fact. Someone who actually lived and walked this earth. He was beaten, crucified, and died a horrendous death. This is not only told by the Bible, but backed up by numerous other historical references.

As the perilous times we live in get worse, we must remember to stand steadfast in our faith in Jesus Christ. In Matthew 10:33 Jesus states "Whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven."
