Christians and Art

Christians should be the ones who appreciate art. Our God is supremely creative, thus we should rejoice in seeing his creativity reflected in his people.

Yes, we can walk the line of idolatry (Romans 1) through worshiping the creation instead of the Creator, but with those dangers fully in mind I think we need a revitalization of appreciation for what God has made through his people.

So I say let's get together and have more concerts, art showings, dance recitals and nature expeditions for the glory of God! Let's be known as people who fully embrace the distinction between Creator and creation (unlike the church of Oprah), yet are not dismissive of what God has made and are able to fully rejoice in it.
