The movie is about a college professor who does not believe in God. He declares it to his class, “There is no God." He asks the class to fill out the papers using the three words, 'God is dead.' One student refuses his request. The professor issues a challenge to the student. He has to prove that God is alive. In his quest, he interviews different people. That is when his girlfriend asks Willie and Korie about their religious beliefs.

When asked, "What do you say to people who are offended by your show because you pray to Jesus in every episode?”

Willie responds, “If we disown Him, He disowns us.”

In the show "Duck Dynasty," the Robertson family does not hide their religious beliefs under a rock. They had to fight to keep the blessing of their meal in the show, because they mention the name of Jesus. While one member of the family is a minister who joined the series this season, another member was kicked off the show, for a brief period, because he said some controversial things, based on his religious views, about gay people.

Willie believes that this movie is an excellent way to help other kids heading off to college. He said that most kids struggle with their faith and it is after those struggles with faith that each person comes to their conclusion about God. Willie's told the Christian Post what he thought about the movie after viewing it for the first time. "I thought it was well written and it came together. It inspired me.

"I think the movie was certainly made as a teaching tool to definitely bring people to a belief in God."

Just as each episode of “Duck Dynasty” ends in family prayer at the dinner table, this movie ends with the Newsboys singing their hit song, God’s Not Dead.

The movie, "God's Not Dead" premiers in theaters March 21.
