My husband and I have been having a college-age Bible study at our house for the past couple of months. We typically watch a movie on the first Sunday, then discuss Biblical truths that are suggested by the movie for the next several weeks.
Last month, we searched for truth in “Iron Man 3,” examined it with a Biblical Worldview, and discussed Surviving Stupidity. Next month, we’ll investigate “Winter Soldier.” But this month, we’ve been focusing on “God’s Not Dead.” I’ve shared a few insights the past several weeks from a college-aged Bible study group that meets at my house.
To conclude this line of thoughts on “God’s Not Dead,” I’ve included some poignant quotes from the movie.
“Life is a tale, told by an idiot, full of sound and fury. Signifying nothing.” William Shakespeare
“Love is what we say when we want something, when we need something.” Marc Shelley
“A god who will allow that (pain and sorrow) is not worth loving.” Professor Radisson
“God is good all the time. And all the time, God is good.” Reverends Dave and Jude
“I think of Jesus as my friend. I don’t want to disappoint Him. And I don’t want anyone to get talked out of believing in Him just because some professor says they should.” Josh Wheaton.
“Only a real risk tests the reality of a belief.” C.S. Lewis
“Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven. But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven.” Matthew 10:33-34
“It’s not easy, but it’s simple.” Reverend Dave
“We spend our entire lives talking about faith. Now it’s time to show it.” Reverend Jude
“The God that you don’t believe in has given you another chance to change your final answer.” Reverend Dave
“Pain for a few minutes, but think of the joy in heaven” Reverend Jude
“Sometimes, the devil allows people to live a life free of trouble because he doesn’t want them to see a need for God. Your sin is like a jail cell, except it’s so nice and comfy, you don’t see the need to leave. One day the cell door slams shut and it’s too late.” Mrs. Shelley
If you’re familiar with the movie, you’ll see how these quotes (that I just randomly jotted down as they jumped out at me) encapsulate the messages of the movie.
