A couple of weeks ago, my husband and I were blessed to receive an invitation to view the new film from Pure Flix called, Do You Believe? These are the folks who, last year, brought us the film, God’s Not Dead, which took the nation by storm. Now, if by chance, you are not familiar with God’s Not Dead, you can check it out here.
This picks up where God’s Not Dead left off. You have proved to me the existence of God and my need for a Savior, but what do I do with it now? Where do I go from here? It follows the paths of 12 strangers, some of whose paths may cross, as they grapple with this question posed at them. Do you believe in the cross of Christ? If that answer is yes than what are you going to do about it?
I can’t reveal to you very much more than that, or than what the trailer below will reveal to you. However, please trust me when I say that this movie is a must see movie. I left that movie very challenged. I consider myself a very faithful follower of Christ, outspoken in my beliefs, and yet, I feel I am falling short of what I can and am called to do for Him.
It is full of humor, drama, and action. It’s just as well done as any other movie that Hollywood is putting out there. It is phenomenally well acted, with an all star cast like Ted McGinley, Mira Sorvino, Cybil Shepherd, Lee Majors and Sean Astin. This is a movie, in the midst of all the shades of garbage that Hollywood is putting out there (yup…) that we, as a Christian community, should be spending our money to support.
A movie that both believers and non-believers will enjoy. It’s a great witnessing opportunity because you may be able to get people to come out to see a movie with you whereas they may not feel comfortable coming through the church doors with you and sitting in a pew. The movie is PG-13 due to some thematic issues, violence and an accident sequence. I would comfortably recommend 6th grade and up, and maybe 5th grade if they are mature. I would personally not take children younger than this unless you have personally viewed it first.
It is opening on a small amount of screens nationwide on Friday, March 20, 2015. I urge you to get a group together from your church, your friends and family, co-workers, whoever, and go, go, go opening weekend!! I traveled an hour and half to see the screening and after seeing it, I would travel longer. It is that good. My local theater is not carrying it opening weekend. They want to see how the numbers go. I am sure it is all about the bottom line. I am personally committing to taking a group of at least 50 people and traveling to the nearest theater, nearly a hour away, on opening night. If all of us do this, the numbers will soar like they did with God’s Not Dead, and more theaters will pick it up the following weekend and more people will get the chance to see this movie and be blessed.
I am working with a great gal named Jackie from Pure Flix, to get my group a great price and reserved seats opening weekend and so can you. Just visit the official site for Do You Believe? here, click on theater and sales, then group sales and fill the form in. She will get back to you in a short time.
Now, without further ado, please check out, Do You Believe?
*Just a note, I was not asked to write a review nor compensated for this review. I just really loved the movie, was challenged and blessed by it and wish you to be also*
