Following up on their discussion of, the 2018 film A Quiet Place, Kenny and Mike discuss the film and spot faithin John Krasinski's sequal, A Quiet Place Pt. 2.

Faith Issues Spotted:

As in the original, A Quiet Place Pt.2 depicts the reality that there is no escaping the threat of the invading aliens. Much like sin, which is beyond the ability of humanity to escape and overcome, there is no place to escape the presence and danger of the aliens.  While one can hide, one cannot escape.

The presence of a Christ Figure, someone through whom salvation is found and who demonstrates true, empathy and sacrificial love for others. This element added to Kenny's understanding to the nature of Jesus as the Word.

AQP2 depicts the teaching in Matthew that faithful should not fear that which can kill the body only, but that which can kill the body and soul/spirit. Matthew 10:28.  This teaching came immediately following Jesus's teaching earlier in the chapter of coming persecution.
