  1. Welcome to Christian Forums, a forum to discuss Christianity in a friendly surrounding.

    Your voice is missing! You will need to register to be able to join in fellowship with Christians all over the world.

    We hope to see you as a part of our community soon and God Bless!

  2. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  4. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

    I loved both "The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe" and "Prince Caspian".

    My husband and I enjoyed them both but differently. He thinks it's ripping fantasy yarn and I think they are spiritual stories that teach children about God and battle of good vs evil.

    What do you guys think?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    I think they are overrated. But at least in the end Lewis does not pull his punches. Few today would have the guts to end things the way he did.

    They are great. I love reading them and the movies are pretty good.

    I'm leaning towards The Fun Fantasy Yarn, as beyond The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe there isn't much of a comparison, and even in that case it's very loosely related.

    While they are Christian allegory, it's not going to be interpreted that way by a kid unless the parallels are clearly explained to them.

    I read them as a child and had no clue that was what they were intended to be.

    Actually I think the Christian-allegory is a bit too suffocating in the movies. "Why couldn't I see Aslan, Lucy?" "Well, maybe you weren't looking hard enough." etc. Aslan in pretty much Jesus in a lion's body. And the problem with that is that it's too obvious.

    But other than that, I like the films. They plot can be sharpened, but the visuals are stunning and the battles are the best sword&sorcery battle scenes I've seen since LoTR. They also manage to create a believable fantasy world that draws you in, and I think for this kind of movie that's the most important thing.

    A bit of both, I'd say. :) I love them--I can't wait to get Prince Caspian. And for Voyage of the Dawn Treader to hit theaters. :)

    I also have to say a bit of both and really love the lesson of faith they give.
