The hit-franchise, God’s Not Dead, is releasing it’s 3rd film in a few short days & I was given the opportunity to screen it before it hit theaters. My family enjoys the inspirational film series, but I was particularly looking forward to it because the plot revolves around rights of homeschoolers.
David A.R. White reprises his role as “Reverend Dave”, who is called to defend the church’s homeschool co-op when the government interferes. He’s called all the way to Washington DC (including other castmates including Francesca Battistelli, playing a homeschooling mother) to defend his beliefs in a congressional hearing, pleading the rights that parents have to educate their own children how they see fit.
Prior to watching the movie, I came across a few Christian memes about ‘We the People’, most making fun of the idea that it’s unrealistic and works up viewers for no reason at the idea of their rights being taken away in real life. These rights are very much under attack and governments around the world are implementing education rules under the guise of “for the children” when their true purpose is control, indoctrination, and the further removal of God from people’s lives.

The movie helped encourage and remind me that my children’s educations are worth fighting for, and if ever put in the position, to not bend to the will of the world’s opinion for the sake of my child.
