According to Christianity Today, Hart said during an interview that, "In the past few years, I've been taking my religion seriously, taking Bible study and praying. I find that if you say 'Jesus,' it makes people feel uncomfortable instead of feeling love and peace. It's very unfortunate."

She added, ""The idea with the ["God's Not Dead 2"] is that Jesus shouldn't be an uncomfortable name to say... Whether or not you believe he is the Messiah, Jesus started a huge movement that changed our world. Why is it not OK to talk about that?"

Hart grew up Catholic before she and her husband became Presbyterians. She, along with Jennifer Garner, have recently drawn attention to Christian films by taking starring roles in them.
