Frozen 2

Five Conversations to Have with Your Kids After Seeing Frozen II

It’s been six years in the making, but Frozen II has finally hit the box office. This sequel is bound to captivate millions of children, rake in big bucks for Disney, and leave many Christian parents scratching their heads.

Like most Disney movies, Frozen II is a mixture of the good, the beautiful, and the untrue. So, what should Christians do? Ignore the film? This would be almost impossible. Embrace it with open arms? This would be unwise. Instead, let’s use this movie as an opportunity to get our kids thinking deeply about truth. Here are five conversations we can have with our kids to help them carefully evaluate Frozen II.

1. What Is the Nature of God?

From its opening scene, the forest spirits of air, water, fire, and earth permeate Frozen II. These spirits call Elsa, and she follows them. She is even admonished by a local tribal leader to trust only nature and listen when it speaks. This animistic spirituality will cause many Christian parents to pause and wonder if they should have spent $11.50 a ticket. However, this spiritual element provides an excellent opportunity to talk with our children about the nature of God.

Like the Christian worldview, Frozen teaches that reality is dualistic, made up of both the physical and spiritual. However, Frozen’s depiction of the spiritual realm differs significantly from what Scripture presents. Open the discussion by asking your children what different elements in the movie had spirits. Point out how these spirits are all part of nature. Read Colossians 1:15-20, and ask your children what these verses teach us about God. Be sure to point out that God is the creator of all. He is near His creation (immanent), but He is not part of it (transcendent). Unlike the spirituality present in Frozen II, God is not in air, water, fire, or earth. He created these elements, and He sustains them. But He is not in them.

2. How Do We Determine Right from Wrong?

One of the main themes in Frozen II is entering “Into the Unknown.” Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, and Olaf all face anxiety over not knowing what is to come. However, they resolve always to do “The Next Right Thing.” This determination is a far cry from Disney’s typical “follow your heart” anthem. And it is a message we should eagerly discuss with our children.

To open the conversation, ask your children what Anna and Elsa did when they were unsure of the future. Ask your children what they think of this resolve to do the next right thing. Point out that we can never know what the future holds. But, rather than worry about this, we can choose to do good right where we are. Use this as an opportunity to discuss how we know what is right. Do we follow our hearts? Will our hearts ever lead us astray? Is there some standard outside of us that shows us what is right and what is wrong? Discuss how our feelings are not an infallible guide for right and wrong. There is a standard outside of ourselves to which everyone is accountable. (For more information on getting your children to critically think through objective morality, check out Unit 5 of Foundation.)

3. Is Seeking Truth Important?

Throughout the film, Elsa is on a quest to discover truth. And she doesn’t let anything stop her, not magical barriers, or fire-breathing lizards, or stormy seas, or raging ice-stallions. She is determined to seek truth. The truth she discovers is painful. At first, it leads to destruction and death. But, ultimately, it brings about hope and healing.

Ask your children if they agree with Elsa that truth is of the utmost importance. Remind them that the truth Elsa discovered was painful. Then ask if it would have been better if she saved herself from pain and didn’t learn the truth. Point out that knowing the truth was the only way to save herself and others. Connect this with our lives. If we do not know the truth or follow the truth, we will miss out on what is real. Read John 14:6 and John 18:37. Discuss how these passages claim that truth is of the utmost importance because God is the source of truth. Then ask your children, “Should truth be as important to Christians as it was to Elsa?”

4. Are We the Ones We’ve Been Waiting for?

Frozen II’s plot centers on Elsa and company journeying north to find a missing spirit that can unite the other four spirits. (SPOILER ALERT) When Elsa eventually reaches her destination, she is surprised to discover that she is the missing spirit. Her mother urges her, “Step into your power…You are the one you’ve been waiting for all your life.” With this message, Elsa realizes that she has within her all that she needs. And here we have Disney’s repackaged “follow your heart” theme.

Since this message is found in “Show Yourself,” you may want to have your kids listen to the song again, while looking at the printed lyrics. (It would be almost impossible to avoid the song in stores anyway.) Ask your children what they think of the queen’s claim. Are we the ones we’ve been waiting for? Do we have everything that we need inside of ourselves? Use this as an opportunity to point out your sin. Give specific examples of times you’ve blown it and ask your children to do the same. Then point them to the gospel. Discuss how the Bible teaches that we are all image-bearers of God (Genesis 1:26-27), but we have been affected by the fall (Romans 3:21-26). We cannot rescue ourselves (Romans 5:6-8). We are not the ones we’ve been waiting for. Jesus is.

5. Is Love Permanent?

Throughout the movie, Olaf, the lovable snowman, is saddened by the fact that “nothing is permanent.” Everything around him is changing, and he longs for something that endures. Toward the end of the movie, Olaf discovers that there is something permanent – love. This theme is echoed in Anna’s unwavering determination to protect her sister and in Kristoff’s declaration that his “love is not fragile,” after Anna abandons him. This theme provides an excellent opportunity to discuss the nature of love with our children.

Open the conversation by asking your children if they agree with Olaf that love is permanent. If they disagree, ask them why. Use this as an opportunity to discuss the difference between love and infatuation. Our feelings for others will always fluctuate, that is the nature of emotions. However, true love, caring for another sacrificially, is much deeper than changing emotions. True love will not fade. Read 1 John 4:7-12 and discuss how love is not merely an act of God; it is an attribute. God is love. Because God is unchanging and eternal, we can agree with Olaf that true love is permanent.

As is typical for Disney, Frozen II is a mixture of truth and error. Many Christians will be tempted to either ignore this cultural phenomenon or settle for using it as mere amusement. If we choose either option, we are missing a golden opportunity to get our kids critically thinking about truth. So, let’s not wait until they’re older, or leave them to get lost in the woods. Let’s start the discussion today!

  1. These are great talking points, but I think that it is wrong to intimate that parents who skip Frozen 2 are missing out on the opportunity to have deep conversations with their children about these topics. Perhaps I’m misreading your intention with the sentence about being “tempted to ignore” it, but since you said in the beginning that it was “impossible” to ignore it does feel a bit like the assumption is that *everyone* will see it. And while you do bring up excellent discussions for those who *do* see it, the underlying themes leave me wondering why I should feel compelled to take my children to see it. They’ve maybe seen the first film once. Maybe. They’ll probably see F2 at some point at someone’s home while visiting. But it is not something we will seek out, much less pay for. If there is so much to debrief, why do Christian parents feel the need to be some of the first in line to offer up their children’s impressionable minds for the sake of being “with it” or not having their kids feel left out, or even Christian talking points? You can have those same discussions without seeing a film that is going to tantalize and tempt your children to follow its worldview. Which is more appealing – a jazzy song and fun characters, or mom and dad raining on your Disney parade, telling you that your favorite movie is wrong? Music is powerful. If the lyrics of the songs aren’t what you want your children to believe, why are you going to allow them to be blasted on repeat over and over, sinking that worldview deeper into your household’s collective consciousness? God put our children in our care to raise them to serve Him, and sometimes that means making hard decisions for them about things like entertainment. Godly parenting requires that we share our reasons with them for doing so, whether or not they agree with them or understand them. So, yes, you can avoid Frozen 2 *and* talk to your kids about why you’ve chosen to do so without leaving them to get lost in the woods. One day they will understand if you keep shepherding their hearts with love and talking all the way. But you confuse them when you pay for a movie ticket and then have to deconstruct the film and tell them that they shouldn’t believe that was presented to them. How can they trust us when we give them something they want and then have to pick out the bad bits? Our children need us to be discerning and critical where they are not yet capable. They need us to say ‘no,’ even when it will make them upset.

    • Hi Rebecca,

      Thank you for making time to share your thoughts. I applaud you on your intentionality in monitoring what your kids are exposed to. You are correct that God has put your children in your care to raise them to serve Him.

      When we said Frozen will be nearly impossible to avoid, we meant that children are bound to see the characters on t-shirts and cereal boxes, hear the music in stores, and encounter Frozen toys at friends’ houses. But it is possible to have them avoid watching the film.

      Our goal at Foundation is to equip children to carefully evaluate every idea they encounter. We want them to see that Christianity lines up with reality in a way that no other worldview does. Frozen II is a mixture of themes that align with the biblical worldview and those that don’t. And we want to help parents use this as a tool to help kids critically think through these biblical and non-biblical themes. We know that parents who take the call of discipleship seriously will make different decisions for their children. Our goal in this post was to equip parents who allow their children to see the movie to engage in worldview discussions. I apologize if this post gave the impression we were pressuring you into exposing your children to the movie.

      Thanks again for making time to share your thoughts.

      With joy,

    • Dear Rebecca :
      You have TOTALLY nailed it !! Every sentence & thought expressed here is exactly right !! Why offer up our children. Indeed !! Our roll as parents & grandparents is to nurture & help their growing minds to follow Gods words .. “whatsoever things are pure .. good.. etc think on these things !! “ BECAUSE … we know and Satan knows what you embrace mentally .. you will become !!
      Thankyou for your insight ! God Bless !!

    • Yes, Rebecca! So true. Elizabeth, I appreciate you teaching parents how to approach these movies, but perhaps you could change the implication that parents have to let their kids watch it, or will not be able to keep them from listening to the songs on repeat. I think the fact that many parents feel this way, and think they have no choice is a real problem in our society and Christian lives. I am glad that you are giving taking points to help parents lead their kids.

      • Hi Amy,

        Thank you for making time to critically think through both this post and the comments. We appreciate hearing your insight. The comment about “Show Yourself” being on repeat was meant to be a joke. However, your feedback is a wise reminder of the importance of choosing words carefully, even in jest. Thank you for that reminder.

        Our philosophy at Foundation is that one of the most effective ways of training kids to be discerning in a secular culture is to use elements of culture as discussion pieces. This philosophy is the reason we are encouraging parents to use Frozen II as such. However, we understand that not everyone will agree with this model, and we respect parents who decide this philosophy is not best for their children.

        Thank you again for making time to think through this and share your thoughts.

        With joy,

  2. My exact thoughts!! Why open a door to Satan to have a foothold in your child’s life? I am so thankful to know more about this film, I really had no idea what it was about. We will not pay for Disney to lead our kids astray.

  3. Thank you for sharing this! I want to be led by the Holy Spirit in parenting! Thanks for giving encouragement that points us back to Jesus!

  4. Amen!!
    My thoughts exactly! I feel so much more encouraged knowing we are not the only parents who feel this way.
    My children were so disappointed!
    When my daughter’s friends and cousins went to see it, she cried. I was starting to doubt our decision, thinking maybe we are overreacting, but after reading this, I know we are not alone! So many Christians are losing their courage to stand against the world, especially when they’re alone. I no longer want to feel this way!
    The more we encourage one another the stronger we will be and the better this world will become.
    Thank you and God bless!!

  5. I absolutely agree that we are responsible to discern for our children while they are still too young to do so. However, there are many children who will want to see F2 that *are* of an age that they are mentally and spiritually mature enough to start learning to discern for themselves, and it is so important for parents to pass on the skill of discernment rather than simply continuing to make decisions for their child in an attempt to make sure they make the right decisions. I grew up in a house where my parents were not intentional about teaching me how and why I should be discerning *for myself*, and instead smothered my siblings and me all the way through highschool by attempting to make our decisions for us. It was always a struggle and my relationship with my parents is still healing a decade later. I am a rather independent thinker as it is, so I was able to figure it out on my own, but I see my adult siblings *still* having a hard time discerning what is wise and asking rather only what is allowed, which is not healthy if you’re getting your moral compass information from anyone but God.

    This being said, I am so thankful that other parents are being intentional about shepherding their children’s hearts, and want to actively teach their children how to discern for *themselves* what is truth and what is lie. When you see that your child is old enough to start learning these skills, I encourage you to start teaching them. In everything else we teach them as they grow we acknowledge that if we always “do it for them” they will never learn to do it themselves.

    • Hi Naomi,

      Thank you for making time to share your thoughts, as well as your history with this topic.

      You have done a great job describing what the Mama Bear Apologetics team describes as “the refined art of chew and spit.” We need to teach our children how to critically think and discern truth from error. We want them to “chew” on what is true and “spit” out what is false. Otherwise, as you described, they will struggle to know how to think well without our guidance. Christian parents will make different decisions as to what they will allow into their homes. But whatever is allowed in should be used for teaching discernment. Thank you for highlighting the importance of this in your post.

      With joy,

  6. These are great points Elizabeth and I love how you help us to think through questions to ask after seeing the movie and point back to Scripture too to help our children think through what the Bible says about reality and God. I want to teach my kids how to think critically but don’t feel like I have the understanding to explain it simply for my kids so I love how you break things down correctly but simply enough for kids – I feel like I learn just as much from your teaching as an adult as my kids do.

    • Hi Rachel,

      Thank you for the encouragement. We are always excited to hear when our work helps parents get their kids critically thinking through the Christian worldview!

      Thanks for making time to respond.

      With joy,

  7. I think this is an excellent article. At one time I felt like I needed to shelter my children from the world, but I have come to realize that the world and the things of it is a great educational resource to teach my children why we believe what we do. I felt that isolating my kids from these things only caused them to want to know more about it. Like with Frozen 2, which we will see tomorrow, I can show them why exactly we need to be careful not to be deceived in this day and age. I know that every parent will have their own convictions on the matter, but I don’t want my children just to do what I say because I believe it, but I want them to know why they believe what they believe. I am looking forward to discussing these questions with my children. Thanks again for the great article! Blessings and Shalom!

    • Hi Denise,

      Thank you for making time to share your thoughts.

      We applaud you for your intentionality in training your kids to be discerning. This is vital in a pluralistic culture. As you mentioned, different parents will have different convictions regarding what they allow in their homes, and this is to be expected (Romans 14).

      We are encouraged to hear you will use these talking points with your children after seeing the movie. Feel free to let us know how the conversation goes!

      With joy,

  8. Absolutely agree with everything Rebecca said above! Our kids will not be seeing the movie or listening to the music, especially on repeat! I won’t go on about it because I think that what Rebecca and some others said about it is right on. Glad to see others share the same view my husband and I have.

    • Hi Kristen,

      Thanks for making time to share your thoughts. We know that not everyone will agree with our philosophy, and we applaud you on your intentionality in monitoring that to which your children are exposed.

      With joy,

  9. Thank you for your article. I just used it with my children after seeing the movie. As a homeschooling mom, I am always so excited to be there with my children alongside them, training them to think for themselves, to turn to the Scripture for their source of truth, and to evaluate the world around them with a wise eye, looking to God for truth. I agree with your response that parents will differ on how they choose to raise their kids. My goal for my kids is to help them interpret the world around them critically and truthfully, according to reality. I am grateful for opportunities to show my kids what the world will say vs. what the Bible says. If they are never given that opportunity to examine their own faith, then when they become adults I fear they will not have the foundation they need when faced with questions and doubts. I don’t think that sheltering them from worldly messages or thoughts will benefit them in the long run. If I can teach them now to interpret everything they see and hear according to the truth of Scripture, they will be well equipped to do this on their own as they get older. Eventually, they will hear the messages of the world and will have to make a choice as to what is truth. I can only pray that I’ve taught them well how to determine truth. This doesn’t mean I don’t shelter them at all- I do. But I also look forward to the opportunity to expose them to what the world is going to and does say and how to look to God for truth. Thanks for doing the hard work of thinking this through…it was a great resource for me with my kids.

    • Hi Mallary,

      We are glad to hear that you found this article helpful as you debriefed the movie with your kids. It sounds like you have worked hard to find a healthy balance between monitoring what your kids are exposed to and preparing them to carefully evaluate what they will encounter in the world.

      We have a colleague who has been engaging her now eleven-year-old daughter in these types of conversations for several years. When they went to see Frozen II, her daughter turned to her in the opening scene and said, “Oh no. Pantheism.” We are always encouraged to see that this type of training fosters independent discernment.

      Thank you for making time to share your thoughts, Mallary. May God continue to bless you as you disciple your children.

      With joy,

  10. I don’t think my girls are gullible. for example, just because they watch paw patrol doesn’t mean they expect our dog to talk to them and fly airplanes. And my kids will undoubtably be exposed to animism repeatedly and from an early age because we live in a predominantly Yupik (Eskimo) community.
    Frozen is a fun movie and my oldest daughter pays attention to the sister friendship and loyalty, which she applies to her little sister. I don’t think a conversation about truth vs fiction and the contrast between how pagan cultures view spirituality vs how the Bible views spirituality is beyond her maturity. I think critical examination of different world views helps to strengthen our children’s faith and protect them from gullibility. I’m not saying you are doing something wrong if you choose not to allow your children to see it but I don’t think that I’m “offering my children up“ to the world by allowing them to see it. If I want to shelter them from animists they basically couldn’t have friends or go to school or interact with people where we live and that would be rather counter productive to the gospel work. My older daughter will be seeing it with her grandparents after Christmas.

  11. Gosh, although I think there are some valid points in this article, I also think we have to remember there is no junior holy spirit. If we are walking around thinking that Frozen II is opening a door for Satan to have a foothold in our children’s lives, I believe we are living under a spirit of fear! I wholeheartedly believe that open and honest conversations to process what our kids have seen and heard is a necessary part of Christian parenting. But this piece and some of the comments following seem to be built out of an incredibly privileged and naive world view. I want my kids to be able to go into any school, church, family or neighborhood and be the light of Christ without being shocked because the most controversial thing they’ve ever seen is Frozen II.

    Just my thoughts.

  12. There is ALWAYS something “to debrief.” If we’re thoughtful, intentional parents, that’s the nature of life. If it’s not Frozen II, it will be something else. Christian children must be routinely encouraged to ask questions about every idea they encounter, weighing those ideas against Scripture. (And a careful reader will notice that, although there are five major questions in the article, the conclusions were NOT that Disney got all five points wrong.) We all are trying to walk the sometimes-difficult line between protecting our children — keeping them from harm and preparing them for the real world — and OVERprotecting them — crippling them so they’re incapable of handling the real world.

    My oldest daughters saw this with an aunt, so I appreciate knowing what, specifically, to talk about with them.

  13. Hello! I appreciate the work put into this post. I read Mama Bear Apologetics and thought it was exactly what I’ve been looking for. I’ve also purchased some books that were mentioned on the Mama Bear Apologetics website to share with our kids to get these conversations started. I was glad some points were clarified in the comments though because it seemed that it was assumed *everyone* would (and should) see this movie. I tend to agree with Rebecca’s thoughts on not succumbing to following pop culture and running to watch every movie Disney puts out. We tend to be selective on what we watch or read in our home, not to be overprotective but to keep the intentional focus on the good, true and beautiful. (As far as most movies and tv shows, I find the bar has been lowered that it is nearly impossible to avoid snarky, disrespectful, name calling behavior and that is reason enough to avoid most things, in my opinion, but that is another rabbit trail.) What we fill our minds, hearts and homes with does matter so why spend money and time on junk? I grew up with too much junk and I want better for my kids. At the same, it is so important to teach our children to be discerning in order to be successful, God loving people. It’s a balance for sure and how it is approached will likely look different for different families and children. This technique mentioned in the post my eldest son (10) is ready for but my daughter (8) isn’t quite there yet. Although I did have a discussion similar to this with the kids after watching the movie Zootopia, ugh.
    You, and other moms who have been implementing this approach with your kids for awhile, have more experience in this area but I wonder if those who are less experienced might encounter a sort of backfire if they rush out to watch this movie just to try this. There are definitely worse things than this movie, of course, but if people are submersed in pop culture in their homes as well as in the world then they absolutely need the help from others such as yourself. The “chew and spit” approach is needed regardless and I appreciate your time. Thank you!

  14. Hi, Elizabeth. Having once been a Christian, I can certainly appreciate the sentiments of your post. Parents do indeed have a responsibility to help their children think critically about the world around them, providing them with the tools to discern fact from fiction. Movies can provide a useful opportunity in doing so. Unfortunately, your suggestions fall short of providing those tools. Asking pertinent questions and then immediately following up with the biblical answers is simply teaching children what to think versus how to think. For example, in your first point, you mention the dualistic nature of reality. One should ask children what evidence we have for a spiritual realm. Can a spiritual realm be tested? If multiple religions claim different spiritual realms, how might one go about determining the veracity of one claim over another? Open-ended questions like these allow the child to dig deeper without the parent spoon-feeding them the “right” answer.

    • Hello Janet,

      Thank you for making time to share your thoughts. You brought up several excellent points.

      First, you highlighted that the conversations presented in this blog post do not build a comprehensive case for Christianity. And they were not meant to do so. The goal of this blog was to foster conversations that help children compare the biblical worldview to that which is presented in Frozen II. The types of discussions you mentioned in your post, such as which form of dualism aligns with reality, is what we seek to do in our curriculum, not in these supplemental conversations.

      Second, you highlighted the importance of asking open-ended questions. You are correct that this is key. If we ask questions that only require a yes or no answer, or questions that presuppose an answer, we are not requiring our children to think critically. That is why we suggested questions of this nature, to get kids thinking about ways in which the worldview presented in Frozen II aligns with Christianity and ways in which it doesn’t.

      Thanks for bringing up these points, Janet. They help clarify the purpose of this post and how we hope parents will use it.

      With joy,

  15. My three kids (ages 10, 8 & 5) saw the movie today and really loved it & we just talked through your five questions and had some great conversation about truth and God’s love and our own emotions in light of scripture, so I really appreciate the thoughts you put down here to be a starting off point to point our kids toward the gospel through intentional conversation about this film

  16. Elizabeth, thank you so much for writing this article! I have since shared it and have gotten other momma’s positive feedback on it. I chose to take my daughters to see this film for enjoyment AND purposeful discussion using apologetics. Like you mentioned, I follow the “chew and spit” method from Mama Bear Apologetics. There were some positive themes in the film that my girl’s readily picked up on (i.e. seeking truth, true love, sisterly love, finding joy in difficult times, doing the next right thing, etc.). Likewise, my 6 and 8 year old knew the problem with ‘following your heart’ thinking and that nature spirits aren’t real…. the movie created for us great discussion and your article was instrumental in leading the discussion and prepping me to ask the right questions. So thank you for equipping me, and giving me the tools to have great conversations (on more than one occasion)… and ultimately to proclaim the name of Jesus as the source of all truth, true love and that we need Him most of all!

  17. Wow people!! She is trying to help you open doors for biblical conversations with your kids IF you choose to see the movie. If not, that’s your prerogative… but what in the world? Why are we being so rude to someone who is trying to help us have a good conversation with kids about God?! Thank you for this article. I think it was insightful and IF my kids see the movie, these are great things to think about 🙂

  18. I struggle with how drinking poison is supposed to help me or some one close to me have a better life. Since when did using culture become the basis for spiritual discussion. Let’s drink beer to better understand what it means to get drunk. Seems to me that we ‘re replacing scripture and the Holy Spirit and the ability to discern a troubled conscience with a worldly movie in hopes that our psychological reasoning’s will somehow steer a young mind down the right path. The child will walk away believing that experimentation in all areas will give them insights into Biblical truth. An amazing proposed use of Hollywood entertainment being justified to have spiritual conversations in the home

  19. As a mom of kids who are mostly grown and on their own, I feel a little sad for some of those who are commenting. Specifically those who think they can keep their children in a box and can control their every thought and action. The truth is that we live in a fallen world and we must make the most of opportunities to train our children to engage the world in a Biblical and knowledgeable way. Keeping your children from major cultural experiences often cause resentment and a form of legalism they will not serve them well once they are of an age to choose for themselves. Overall and comparatively, the Frozen movies are somewhat harmless and can be used a a great tool for family bonding and training in righteousness. We are IN the world but hopefully not OF the world. After 20 years in youth ministry, we have sadly observed the fruit of those parents who shielded their children from too many benign things, thus creating either attitudes of resentment and hostility to Christianity or else creating self righteous young adults who depend on their own list of do’s and don’ts to earn favor with God. This self righteousness eventually causes these kids to walk away from the the Lord in frustration and emptiness. Let’s love our kids enough to expose them to the few things that we can, in order to give them confidence and truth to engage the world in a way that shines the light of Jesus in a clear and bold way.

  20. For those who don’t allow your Children to see the beauty of the Frozen films, can you tell me what ARE your children watching? I just can’t help but feel like every single movie could be picked apart for MySchoolBucks worse things. Frozen and Frozen 2 have some spectacular lessons. Again it’s animated and life is not. It’s up to us to teach them Christianity and raise them right. Do the next right thing is perfect! Shouldn’t have to really discuss this unless you fee your child grapples with doing this ?

    • There are worse things for sure. Not everyone finds the movie Frozen, or others movies similar, to be all that great-there are so many other movies more worthwhile, in my opinion. Not all that glitters is gold. Your comment is not unlike saying, “If your children aren’t eating Oreos than what ARE they eating?” 😉

  21. I saw frozen with my granddaughter. Afterward I had a vision from God. The vision showed a demon behind this movie with the power to cause spiritual blindness. We know the Bible says the world is blinded by Satan so why would we want to buy into these movies that promote witchcraft and magic especially when the Bible points out that power flashes out of God’s hands: Habakkuk 3:3-4. He is the only one who can do this!
    So no, I won’t be seeing Frozen 2. In addition where do christians draw the line in being seperate from the world? I say it’s where idolatry rears it’s ugly head. Certainly don’t provoke God to jealousy and don’t expose your children to spiritual blindness!

  22. I have to agree with Lyla.
    Proverbs 4:23 says “Keep (gaurd) thy heart with all diligence; For out of it are the issues of life”.
    Philippians 4:8 says “Whatsoever things are TRUE… HONEST… JUST… PURE…think on these things”.
    This is how we guard our hearts diligently.
    Question: How much impurities can you add before something is no longer pure?? Now, apply that to every facet of your life, giving prayerful thought on what God’s Word means by seperation from the world.

  23. Thank you so much. My siblings and I grew up in Christian bubble wrap, I saw very few movies until I was in my late teens (I am the only one of 5 who is a believer today) and I was never taught how to chew and spit, to dig into the good and spit the untruths. And I so want to teach my girls to do that. To be in the world but not of it.

  24. Thank you for this well thought article! I was looking for just exactly something like this to help teach my boys to think critically about the media and cultural messages we are fed constantly. We are using this movie as an exercise in critical thinking and analyzing biblical worldview. You made my job so much easier!!!

  25. The song Show yourself (From Frozen II), along with Into The Unknown, is an accidental prophetic piece. The lyrics are incredibly testimonial towards God, and talented artists these days don’t realise what they’re REALLY singing about:

    “Every inch of me is trembling, but not from the cold.”
    (Holy Spirit reacting within us, and in-fact has caused trembling at the knees etc. as a physical human reaction; a true sign)

    “Like a friend I’ve always known.”
    (We are Jesus’ Disciples, not servants)

    “And it feels like I am home.”
    (Relationship with God)

    “But you don’t have to hide.”

    “I’m dying to meet you.”

    “Are the one I’ve been looking for all of my life.”
    (The Mist Elsa creates at the end represents the loss of a path we took. Elsa herself represents us as a lost race)

    “I’m ready to learn.”
    (The Word of God)

    “All of my life I’ve been torn, but I am here for a reason. Is it the reason I was born?”

    “Are you the way?”
    (The Way, Truth & The Life)

    “Here I am, I’ve come so far!”

    “You are the answer I’ve been looking for all of my life!”

    “Open your door.”

    “Come my darling, homeward bound.”

    “Grow yourself!”
    (Being rooted in Jesus)

    “I am found.”

    “Where the north wind meet the sea.”
    (Holy Spirit hovering above the waters in Genesis)*
