Frozen is the highest grossing animated films of all time. I truly believe that every great animated film covers the struggle between heroes and villains. In Frozen our heroes were Ana, the ditzy princess, Kristoff, the loveless ice dealer, and Sven, his reindeer, and Olaf, the snowman. With heroes comes villains and although this story was based on the story called the Snow Queen where Elsa should have been the villain it changed to Hans, the young man shown in the picture above. Hans, thirteenth prince in line of the Southern Isles had a small problem. He wanted to be a King. Yet how would someone thirteenth in line become king once his father dies. He had an insane plan that actually almost worked.
Hans plan was fairly devious for a Disney film. He decided to initially marry Queen Elsa of Arendelle. When he realized the Elsa would not be the easiest to win over he turned his focus to her younger more naive sister Princess Ana. However, his plan almost worked when Elsa couldn’t stop the endless winter and the only assumed way to stop her was to kill her and Ana was dying due to a frozen heart. I won’t go into how the day was saved but I do know that there was someone in the bible who had the same problem as Hans. Actually the person in the bible had it a bit worse than Hans. Hans may have been thirteenth in line but Abimelech was seventieth. Continue reading “Frozen’s Hans Should Have Learned From Abimelech – Judges 9:1-6”→
Judges 7:4-7 – 4 Then the Lord said to Gideon, “The people are still too many; bring them down to the water and I will test them for you there. Therefore it shall be that he of whom I say to you, ‘This one shall go with you,’ he shall go with you; but everyone of whom I say to you, ‘This one shall not go with you,’ he shall not go.”5 So he brought the people down to the water. And the Lord said to Gideon, “You shall separate everyone who laps the water with his tongue as a dog laps, as well as everyone who kneels to drink.”6 Now the number of those who lapped, putting their hand to their mouth, was 300 men; but all the rest of the people kneeled to drink water.7 The Lord said to Gideon, “I will deliver you with the 300 men who lapped and will give the Midianites into your hands; so let all the other people go, each man to his home.” (NASB)
I have read this part of the bible and the first thing I thought about was Leonidas in the Zack Snyder movie, 300. I will be first to admit this movie isn’t the most Christian thing to watch but I love a good action flick. This story is about Leonidas and his 300 Spartans fighting Persians to free themselves from their tyrannical ruling. Leonidas believed he only needed true warriors to fight by his side and that his three hundred men was a match for any army. With great strategy and skill he felt he could take on the strongest force in the land. Continue reading “This is Sparta! – Judges 7:4-7”→
