DVD Review

I apologize for not being more active, but not having other reviewers or books to review, it's been a little difficult. However I want to let you know about this wonderful DVD "God's Not Dead." Working at the library I found it on our shelves and took it home. When I brought it back I raved about it. I wanted to take it out again, but it seems word gets around. It's always on hold for someone else. That's great.

The opening scene is in a freshman college philosophy class. The professor states he is an atheist, and asks that if everyone will sign a paper with 3 little words on it he can dispense of the dust and get to the subject. Those 3 words are "God Is Dead." One student cannot sign that. He is given 3 chances to argue the case of the existence of God before the class.

Fueled by hate on one side and a determined love of God on the other this is not your simple movie. The poor kid researches and goes off on a journey of his own to state his case. The end is nothing short of amazing. I guess telling people stuff like this is one of the reasons I can't get a hold of it a second time. It's really that good.

SAVE MY CHILDREN, by Emily Wierenga

Wednesday - Following on the heels of our need for love is our feelings of inadequacy. In SAVE MY CHILDREN, Emily Wierenga introduces us to a number of people, both young and old, who feel inadequate. They feel as if they have been placed in a position where they cannot properly care for their children, or where their parents need more care then themselves. When this feeling of inadequacy comes in contact with the love of God, it fades away. For love is not a feeling, but a fact. Feelings can destroy us, but love builds up. Feelings seem real to us only because we live in a physical body, but God is not bound to feelings and wishes us to be freed from them as well. When we can walk through a dark valley and yet praise Him it is because we do not see the darkness so much as our Shepherd who leads us. In Him do we place our trust and offer up praise. In Him we find hope and joy and peace, no matter what our feelings might be telling us.
