  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.

    As a fan of Boris Karloff, I enjoy the Grinch Who Stole Christmas every year. His narrative voice belies his roles in horror movies.

    But I just wondered how others think about this perennial favoite? What is the (humorous) message?



    :idea:
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    The message (at the end) was Christmas isn't about decorations or presents, but loving each other.
    Which the grinch also did at the end.:thumbsup:

    Christmas is nothing but shoes too tight, or your heads not screwed on right if your heart is too small? :)

    I always figured it was to see if he could.

    How the Grinch Stole Christmas is my favorite Seuss story BTW - way, way better than The Cat in the Hat or Horton Hears a Who. Only slightly better than Green Eggs & Ham (but that has a special appeal at our house because our son's name is Sam).

    That was the message at the end, but I wondered how many actually understood the message at the beginning, i.e., the character and opinions of the Grinch.

    An analysis of the Grinch goes to the "heart" of the real message for Christians.


    :idea:


    This thread is about the Grinch, please refrain from discussions about other topics.

    The Grinch wanted to steal Christmas because he was full of envy and maybe a little greed. :(

    Love his poor little dog! :hug:

    Simple
    He couldn't be happy for others during christmas.

    And If he couldn't have something(Happiness in this case), then no one should be allowed to have it.

    That may be it. He wanted that love, and then became resentful of others who did.

    His dog was loyal to him. Maybe he did nice things for the dog, Max? he fed him.
    Hmmm
