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.

Day of Prayer

Day of Prayer

This week CFRB will be touring Someone to Blame, by C.S. Lakin. We ask that you join us in prayer that this tour will be a success and people's lives will be touched by the Spirit of God that they might come to Jesus as their savior.

It is not a coincidence that this book falls on the same week that we remember with pain the attack on the US on Sept. 11, 2001. The book glances around at many characters looking for someone to blame. We also have been looking around for people to blame for the tragedy of 9/11. I think we need to be cautious. We cannot, as Christians, allow ourselves to be ruled by unforgiveness. I am not saying to hand the keys of the city over to radical Muslims and terrorists. No, we must be practical, but we must also heed the Word of God, which says that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood. So these "enemies" aren't the real enemies. They are only people being used by the demons to oppose God. They need our love, our forgiveness and even mercy. Jesus died for them and covered their sins with His blood. May we never forget the price He paid, and that He loves them still, and commanded us to love them. Oppose the politics and religious pressures, yes, but pray for them. This is the best way we can remember those who died in the 9/11 attacks. - David
