Many thanks to Pinnacle Peak for providing this movie for our review. Opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation. I did receive the product in exchange for this review and post.
In the words of Ronald Reagan, “Freedom is a fragile thing”. Individual freedoms and liberties are at the center of this passionate and emotional story, and it runs from the heart of the country to the corridors of Washington. Who will decide what a child needs to know for generations to come? Will God be left behind?
I am a huge fan of the God’s NOT Dead movies and have found each of them to be thought-provoking and yes, I admit, bringing me to tears every time. So when I had the opportunity to review God’s NOT Dead: We the People, I knew I was going to love it simply from the trailer alone.
The God’s Not Dead franchise continues in God’s Not Dead: We the People as Reverend Dave (White) is called to defend a group of Christian homeschooling families. He finds himself taken aback by the interference of the government, and believing that their right to educate their own children is a freedom worth fighting for, Reverend Dave is called to Washington DC to testify in a landmark congressional hearing that will determine the future of religious freedom in our country for years to come.
I don’t know where you would place me on the political scale – all I know is that I do vote with my conscience on who can do the best job and is a candidate that actually represents what I want to see done in our local, state, and federal government. Sometimes that is a democrat, or a republican, or an independent. I know that our forefathers founded this country on a belief in God, and that belief is evident in our monuments, our currency, and our Declaration of Independence, and our Constitution.
I have not homeschooled my children – they attended public school. I have looked into homeschooling several times, and the option was always in the back of my mind as an alternative to public schools. My children each had Individualized Education Plans and were forced to deal with bullies in the school system – that the system did not prevent. I fought the system for YEARS to ensure my children received the education that they deserved in a safe environment.
While I am not a homeschooling parent, I could completely relate to the premise of the movie where Reverend Dave is called to defend the church’s homeschooling program. He finds himself in a position where the interference of the government is threatening their right to educate their own children in the manner they see fit, with bible classes included in their curriculum and to teach history as it should be, not a revisionist form of history.
The simple rights that we, as Americans, take for granted have been challenged over the past several years. If we do not step up and fight for the freedoms that our forefathers fought for, we are going to lose the freedoms remaining that we do have.
God’s NOT Dead: We The People will be in select theaters on October 4, 5, and 6. Be sure to get your tickets while you can and go see this movie. We truly believe it will open your eyes to the freedoms we are so close to losing that were fought so hard for.
