Hey everyone. So today I went to see God’s Not Dead A Light in Darkness. I must say, if you’re even considering going to see it, please please do. It was fantastic. I will admit, I was a little hesitant about it, watched the trailer, liked the plot, but was still worried that it wouldn’t live up to what I expected. And I loved the first God’s Not Dead movie. It was phenomenal, and as soon as it was out on DVD, I had to have it, and I have watched it several times since. So, with those high expectations, I was a little nervous about the third film. But again, I will say, it was fantastic! So I’m going to do my best not to spoil it for those who are going to go see it later, but I will say it was definitely a great choice not only for this Easter weekend, but in these times.
The point I really liked, and what I felt it really touched on, was that even Christians are humans. Think about that. How many times have you heard someone say, “well that’s not the Christian thing to do?” I’ve heard it before, but sometimes, even if you are a Catholic or Christian, it can be hard to do the right thing. Sometimes, our emotions get the best of us, because no matter how hard we try, we are still humans, and we are still sinners, and most of all, we make mistakes. We act out in anger, in fear, in the heat of the moment, and sometimes, that doesn’t bring out the best of us. And yes, that’s something that everyone struggles with, regardless of your religion. Sometimes, we let our emotions take control, and we lose focus. It’s a part of being human. And this movie, it really touched on that and made a great point. Sometimes, even when you try your hardest, your emotions get in the way, and you don’t do the “right” thing. Even the best people can slip up and make mistakes.
I applaud the cast and crew on another wonderful movie. I was enthralled from the beginning to end, and needed to see what happened, how it was going to turn out. It was great to see some old characters that were in the first film, and it was good to see new ones show up and grow from the start to the beginning of the film. The plot was timely, and fit right into current events, and had a lot of nuances that weren’t even directly related to that particular issue that is faced in the movie.
Overall, it was very well done, and a great reminder that even when He is quiet, God’s not dead.
