Regarding your rejection of “Let It Go”: I strongly disagree, on the grounds that, as I think others have pointed out, you’re taking the song out of its context in the narrative of the film. There’s a similar danger taking Scripture out of context, but we don’t hesitate to encourage our kids to memorize Bible verses. Whether it’s Scripture or a song from a Disney film, it’s a parent’s responsibility to guide their children in how they understand and apply what it teaches.

Here’s my beef: Elsa isolating herself is the wrong choice. The movie clearly proves that. I’m not saying it’s a bad choice to have it in the film. But the people that wrote the music for it did so with the intention of the song being the biggest part of the film. Everything that happens during the song is glorified, not shamed.

And they put it in the credits so it’s the last thing people are humming as they leave the theatre. Not some anthem about the importance of friends and family and selflessness. There is no redeeming song in the film that matches the intensity of “Let it Go.”

When “Let It Go” gets played, are the people singing along thinking it’s the right or wrong choice? I think it’s praising selfish ambition and divisive behaviour, and deceiving people into thinking that it’s ok. 

We memorize scripture because all scripture is God-breathed, and is profitable for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.

Nowhere in the Bible does it say, “No right, no wrong, no rules.”
