Sounds like something that no true biblical oriented theist would accept as anything more than insulting and dangerous (theologically) to their children's upbringing in the faith.

Yet it seems to be popular.

So what do all of you theists think?

I let my son watch some of the videos and sing alongs. Some of the tunes are catchy like "God is bigger than the boogie man" lol

I like them. I have met Mike Nawrocki and he has a good heart and really wants to help kids understand. They went though some rough periods, but it is all better now. I personally like 3-2-1 Penguins better.

I'm not saying they aren't intended to be wholesome, but I wonder of "age appropriate cleansing" is valid for scriptural study?

For instance, the king did not choose his bride based on a beauty pageant, or a singing contest or a talent show. He evaluated them in a sort of sexual american idol competition; each one was tried out in the sack, and those that made the short list would be tried out again.

But that isn't such a big thing really; the idea in Esther is that she could morally involve herself in a sham marriage for the greater good, so that lying in the name of god is honorable. Manipulating for the greater good is honorable. Discretions regarding minor sins are able to be overlooked if it is to avoid great trajedy.

I only got to see a cut of the cartoon, but I was left wondering what the end result was when a story about morality among humans of different cultures was cleansed to be morally acceptable as a story about obstacles between man and God?

Being that a child (and some adults) can only understand so much of what is being told them, I think it loses little when used for planting seeds.
