Frozen is….Biblical (and I can prove it)



  We’ve all watched the movie Frozen.  OK, maybe not all of us, but if you are the parent or Grandparent of a kid in fifth grade or younger, the chances are high that you have seen the movie – in our case we are in the moderately high double digits,  Now, I have to admit, at first I was a little put off by the movie….parents dying, trolls, sorcery, magic powers…but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that….wait for it……Frozen has some very Biblical principles in it, and I can prove it.

1.  Although Elsa and Anna’s parents thought they were helping their daughters by protecting them, they actually ended up hurting them more.  As parents we want our children to always make the right choices.  To never hurt others, or to be hurt.  But at some point, we have to realize that as much as we love them, God loves them more, and He is the one that directs their path.   Our job is to teach them to always seek Christ, and He will do the rest.  Which means, at some point, we have o learn to let them go.  

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.  Proverbs 22:6


2.  After Elsa and Anna’s parents died, they were technically free.  They could’ve met each other any time they wanted to, and walked out the gates at any point, but they had been imprisoned for so long that they didn’t know how else to live.  Like Elsa and Anna, we too have been set free, but sadly, most of us don’t know it, and even fewer live like we are free.

     It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.  Galatians 5:1



3.   Anna had been alone for so long, that she was ready to fill that void with anything – even the wrong thing.  We are all born with a Jesus sized hole in our hearts that can only be filled by one thing – Jesus!  We certainly try to fill it with other things, but He is the only perfect fit.   

And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19


4.  Both girls had been rejected, and both girls tried to shut people out to avoid being hurt again.  Having your heart crushed is never fun.  Sure, it would be great to avoid pain, but the problem is, is that it is impossible to turn off just a single emotion.  Which means, if we shut out pain and rejection, we also shut out love, and acceptance.  

And I will give them one heart, and a new spirit I will put within them. I will remove the heart of stone from their flesh and give them a heart of flesh, that they may walk in my statutes and keep my rules and obey them. And they shall be my people, and I will be their God.  Ezekiel 11:19-20


5.  My favorite part is the ending, when the main characters learn that True Love Conquers All.  For so long, Elsa didn’t know how to save Arendale, and Anna didn’t know how to save her sister.  Of course they both tried to do things their way, but in the end, it wasn’t there own efforts that won, it was love.  As new covenant Christians the only Law we called to obey is to Love each other as ourself.   For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”  Galatians 5:14   

Nothing we go through or do can ever separate us from Christ’s Love:  And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. Romans 8:38

So keep in mind, the next time you watch Frozen for the 1,769,562th time…..that they got the ending right!!!

Now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.  1 Corinthians 13:13

    I don’t consider myself religious, but these are interesting references and I totally respect that you have made these associations (it makes sense!) 🙂 I actually really like it in fact, though I may not believe the same way.

    On a slightly different train of thought, I don’t know if you saw the blog where the person basically was saying that Frozen was promoting homosexuality and that it was an unhealthy message to our children…I thought that was over-analyzing the movie (though of course everyone is entitled to their opinion/evaluation of things), though I guess I can see how that point could be made, it was especially pointing at the song “Let it Go”. And even when I did attend church and such, I never felt that homosexuality was bad or sinful, and I still don’t of course.

    Anyhow, I don’t know why I thought of that haha, but I really wanted to say I enjoyed your post and thank you 🙂


  2. I did read that blog post about Frozen promoting Homosexuality. I also read one that talked about how Frozen was bashing Homosexuality, which I think brings up a good point. We all decipher things differently, depending on our own different beliefs, culture, environment etc. I think no matter what we believe, we must know WHY we believe what we believe. For me, the core of my beliefs is The Bible.

    I love the song Let It Go – which is good, seeing as how my 3 year old sings it For me, I see it as being about how we should all be who we were created to be. Thank you for your comment!
