Art, Religion, and Entertainment: A Quote

It has been said that in ancient Greece, art killed religion; later in Christian Europe, religion killed art. That alone is worth some reflection. But we can add that in modern America, entertainment is killing both art and religion--a situation that leaves very little space for the Christian artist.

  1. So glad you could take it, and enjoyed it!

    Entertainment is deadly, in my experience anyway.

    True joy comes from something deeper.
