God’s Not Dead 2 Movie Defies Hollywood’s Contempt for All Things Christian

God’s Not Dead 2, a new movie premiering in theaters April 1st, tells the story of how a high school teacher is asked a question in class about Jesus. Her reasoned response lands her in deep trouble and could expel God from the public square once and for all. That teacher, Grace Wesley, [Melissa Joan Hart] is thrust into a media maelstrom, persecuted by secular interests, and belittled in the court of public opinion, all because she testified to being a disciple of Christ. Here is a trailer:

Typically, Hollywood has little to offer Christians beyond mockery and derision. God’s Not Dead 2 defies Hollywood’s contempt for all things Christian. I encourage you to see it in support of the movie and as an act of defiance against the persecution of our brothers and sisters in faith. Given the increasing attacks on Christianity and expressions of Christian belief by those occupying "the commanding heights of the culture", let us pray that pictures like this continue to be shown as a 'sign of contradiction' in the world, by way of promoting the Gospel of Life and the imitation of Christ.
