Before, enemies attacked on foreign soil, but Americans felt that they were safe at home. Suddenly, terrorists executed not just one, but multiple attacks, and everything changed. God’s Word is a resource that provides hope when our fortresses crumble. When our perceptions are shattered and our security is revealed to be just an illusion, God is still in control.

Pure Flix Partners with AMIKids

By Greg Gudorf on Aug 26, 2017 7:00:00 AM

“What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.” (James 2:14-17 ESV)

This month, the PureFlix.com family is incredibly excited to announce a new partnership with AMIkids, a not-for-profit organization that empowers and changes the lives of at-risk youth all over the country. It was founded in 1969 by Frank Orlando, a Chief Juvenile Court Judge in Fort Lauderdale, who was frustrated after seeing that people who have run-ins with the law at a young age often re-offend later in life. He knew something had to change for these kids to learn how to channel their energy in a positive way for a better future.

While the Kentucky Department of Education is still putting together a curriculum, schools plan to offer Bible classes soon. Students won’t be required to take the classes, but the move is sending a strong signal around the country. Kentucky is a religious, conservative state where 76 percent of residents say they are Christian, and with the passing of the Bible Literacy Law it may be the first of many states to adopt a policy on faith-based electives.
