Discussion Questions for "God's Not Dead"

Last week at Faith Christian Fellowship in Williamsport, MD, Truthbomb Apologetics hosted a "God's Not Dead" Movie Night.  We wanted to provide people with an opportunity to not only see the film, but also to share their thoughts about it.  I appreciated the arguments that the film presented, but didn't necessary agree with all the content.  However, I can't remember the last time I saw a film and agreed with everything in it!  Overall, I think the movie is a great discussion starter.

Regardless, one of the ways we encouraged the audience to think about the film was with the following discussion questions.  These would be great to use for a small-group study, movie night or even your own family movie night!

1. Which of Josh' arguments did you find most interesting?  Most convincing?

2. The characters in the movie represent various worldviews.  Do you think the movie fairly represented these differing views?  Why or why not?

3. In the film, Josh is faced with a difficult decision.  Do you agree with his decision to defend his Christian convictions?  Why or why not?

4. Do you think this is a good film to view with an unbeliever and/or skeptic?  Why or why not?

5. The problem of evil and suffering is a stumbling block for both believers and unbelievers.  How do you think about the problem of evil and suffering on your worldview?

6. Professor Radisson's real objection to God was an emotional one.  What are some other reasons that people reject or disbelieve in God?

7. Write down any other questions you might have about the content in the film.

Courage and Godspeed,
