Tinkerbell movie, dishonoring to God

Well, the girls have been seeing a lot of "Tinkerbell" movie advertisements and naturally there are plenty of toys and other merchandise in the stores what with the release of the movie. As a result, Miss A asked if they could see it. We decided to give it a shot and picked up a copy. Saturday night we sat down to watch it with the children.

The first couple of minutes were very disappointing and we decided that this wasn't the movie for us. The movie begins with a voice proclaiming:


"Have you ever wondered how nature gets its glow?
Who gives it light and color as the seasons come and go?
Who helps all creatures great and small to walk, to swim, to fly?
Who crafts such tiny details?
You might see them if you try,
for its all the work of fairies..."

What?!?

We stopped the movie at this point and asked the children what they thought about that. Who was it that DID all those things? They answered, God!
Should we watch a movie that is dishonoring to God and takes away glory from Him?
No!

It all goes back to being responsible for what you know. Ya know?

Sorry Tinkerbell, you won't be a movie staple in our house.

I totally agree. We watched that movie (and I am sorry to say we bought it before watching it!) and I was very angry about that part you mentioned. How convenient to totally leave God out of what He did.
