Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. (1 Corinthians 6:9-10)
Sleeping Beauty Is Woke
Princess Aurora, also known as Sleeping Beauty (Briar Rose), is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Productions’ 1959 feature film Sleeping Beauty. The story revolves around the rescue of the princess from the evil plans of Maleficent, who seeks to kill the young Aurora. Three fairies (Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather) take Aurora and raise the child in a secret place for sixteen years. Returning Aurora to the palace at the age of sixteen, the evil Maleficent charms Aurora into pricking her finger, putting her in eternal sleep. Earlier, Aurora met a young man in the woods who was actually Prince Phillip, who she was to marry. Phillip had gone to the cottage in the woods to find Aurora but was captured by the minions of Maleficent and held hostage in the Forbidden Mountain. When Maleficent leaves the mountain, the three fairies release Prince Phillip and give him a magical “sword of Truth and shield of Virtue; both believed to be weapons of righteousness that will triumph over evil.”
Maleficent discovers Phillip has escaped and tries to stop the prince from reaching the castle. When her minions fail to stop the prince, Maleficent turns herself into a fire-breathing dragon that Phillip must fight. The prince is cornered on a cliff and loses his shield. Finally, in a final desperate moment, Phillip throws the magical sword into the heart of the dragon’s chest, killing Maleficent. The story ends with the fairy tale ending of ancient lore that at one time had in its underlying principles of truth, virtue, and righteousness. Maleficent has risen from the dead more powerful than she was in Sleeping Beauty.
The year 2022 has brought about a new picture of the once family-friendly world of Walt Disney. In 1959, principles of righteousness were openly discussed in a cartoon. Now the movie Lightyear bursts upon the consciousness of American society with open lesbian agendas displayed in the animated movie. The sword of Truth and the shield of Virtue is now replaced with the dispossessed, defiled flag of the rainbow agenda of a supposed woke society furiously plunging headlong into a hedonistic (decadent) world. Disney is forcing the agenda of the homosexual world into the consciousness of a society that once honored and respected God and the Bible. It will not come as any surprise if the movie Sleeping Beauty is not recast one day into a story of Aurora and Flora being lovers.
What is happening in the world is not a new agenda but an old song with the same verse and the same author. In the days of Noah, the homosexual agenda was just as popular (if not more so) than any other time. When God destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities of the plain, it was punishment against the immoral nature of human wisdom. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, condemned sexual immorality. Paul wrote a letter to the saints at Corinth who lived in the midst of the immoral world of homosexuality. He was clear in his demonstration of God’s wrath and His mercy. Sexual immorality, including adultery, homosexuality, pedophiles, etc., will be judged by God without mercy. John, the apostle, will write in the Revelation that all sexual immorality will be condemned in the lake of fire. Paul also wrote about the mercy of God to forgive those who repent of the sin of adultery and homosexuality. Some at Corinth had changed their lives. God is full of wrath, and He is full of grace.
Parents who allow their children to engage in the movie Lightyear are accepting the homosexual agenda of the Disney Company and the minority agenda of those who are debased in their minds and bodies. If there was a time for parents to stand with the sword of Truth and the shield of Virtue, it is now. The real sword of truth is found in the armor of God. Parents need to tell their children about that armor and prepare them for the battle they face as young adults. If parents ignore the agenda of the movie Lightyear, they will reap the whirlwind with their children who are convinced there is nothing wrong with same-sex love. May God raise up strong and devoted parents who will not fall prey to the woke world of sin.
