Teaching children to be unwavering and strong in the Lord is absolutely essential in the twenty-first century. The truth is that the external world can tear your foundation apart like a lion piercing its teeth through the flesh of a gazelle. “I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves” (Matthew 10:16). Be vigilant of the world’s desire to coerce you away from the truth – No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it (1 Corinthians 10:13).
As an undergraduate I attended a Christian university so my devotion to Christ was not suppressed, questioned or under scrutiny by Professors as an attempt to extract me from the hand of God. However, during graduate school I attended a university that was not rooted in Christ; a university with worldly expectations and a mentality that everything you think about God should be abandoned at the university’s curb.
The Professor reduced my grade every time the written assignment mentioned the existence of our Creator. They challenged everything I know about our Maker and tried to hammer my foundation believing I would eventually break. After six months, I left the university and entered into a Christian university to complete graduate school. I did not surrender to defeat; instead I refused to remunerate a school that punishes those who believe in the truth.
God’s Not Dead is a new movie scheduled to be released in theaters nationwide on March 21, 2014. This feature film is about a college student whose faith is challenged by his Professor who does not believe in the existence of God. This movie is a must see for parents, college students, believers and even those who challenge the existence of God. I believe it is going to be educational for everyone and I hope it encourages parents to prepare their children to defend their faith as they venture into a world of unbelievers.
