God and Art

Christians – at the least the ones I know – seem to have issue with God and art.

They find it odd, and sometimes disturbing and offensive, that I can see more powerful spiritual truths in movies like The Matrix than in Fireproof. That I feel closer to God after reading books by Laini Taylor than by Max Lucado. That I’m more likely to feel God hearing a Pink Floyd guitar solo than by listening to pop Christian radio.

Art is about Truth and Beauty. Truth and Beauty are created by God.
