Finally a Keeper? “Son Of God” and Noah..things looked a bit grim...

Americans by and large being fairly theologically ignorant I’d expect that many who saw the movies mentioned think that Joan Of Arc....was Noah’s wife....../s

We liked it also. It was well done, but basic. I think we need a series, which goes further in depth. We meed to teach a whole generation or more of the richness of faith in God. There is so much counter-culture everywhere, in schools, in media, on TV, in books, on Internet, among peer groups, that we must once against spread the word. Missionary work.

I was at a major university in 1966 when Time magazine asked the original question.

Being something of a callow youth, I didn’t realize the import of the question at the time. I also didn’t see that it was a very basic leftard assault against our society and culture.

A few years later, pinned down by an NVA MG, I learned real fast HE wasn’t dead. I may have been, but HE will be there for etrnity.

Haven’t seen the film God’s Not Dead, but love the News Boys song by the same name, which is featured in the commercials for the film.

The song’s refrains are haunting, whereas the chorus is hard charging and openly defiant.

Amazing song.

And it looks like the film is worthy of using it.

that's the one.

what I liked about the movie was that it wasn't afraid to tackle some of the tough questions people ask about God. the characters represented real life people in situations the audience could relate to. I'd be willing to bet most have been through a lot of the situations in the movie...or will be at some point in life.

gonna buy it on DVD when it comes out.

What always gets me about the anti-God/atheist fanatics is they can never explain existence. OK, let’s assume there is no God, then how do you explain away existence? Isn’t everything that exists “God” then? Isn’t it intelligent? No? Then how did Einstein exist? Remember - Everything is God. There is no separation. You can look upon everything that exists as “God” or as my Priest use to say “God is everywhere and everything” and I totally believe that. There is two ultimate realities: Nothing or something. While I am alive I detect “something” or existence - I think therefore I am - so at the very least THAT is God. So to deny God is to deny that I do not exist nor can think which is a lie. And let’s get into proof: Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. It is eternal. It is God.

I always like to ask the following questions:

1) how does something come from nothing?

2) how does life come from lifelessness?

the only plausible answer is God said, let there be.....

Exactly, exactly! Harlan Ellison said it best: “I think therefore I AM”...That’s all the proof one would ever need to prove that there is a God. Try to debate that saying, it’s impossible, it’s checkmate every time.

I’m patiently waiting for it to come to Marin County.
I would like to see a religiously supportive movie that is not over splashy in production or special effects. I’m done with swords and sandals for a while. Most end up like a cake with triple the icing and the florets.

I could go see it in Richmond at Hilltop Plaza, or Emmeryville, but to be honest, I don’t want to leave my junky old car all alone in the parking lot for that long. Not in those areas. Too many Desperados if you know what I mean.

Emeryville isn’t bad. See a matinee.

Avoid Richmond.

Nothing fancy with the special effects in this one. This isn't a big budget hollyweird movie like Noah. But it is very well made.

whoever did the research for this is well versed in apologetics.

this is very Biblically sound. you will like it.

I saw today too. Great movie. I also thought of Nietzsche. What occurred to me was that Nietzsche wanted to be God’s coroner.
