Have you ever wondered if art really matters? When I first considered studying art as more than a hobby, I pondered this subject. Today, an article I’ve written, “The Importance of Art in a Biblical Worldview” was guest-posted on my brother Daniel’s blog.
In Genesis chapter one, God creates the earth and everything in it, culminating His creation with a man and a women who were made in His own image.
“So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”
Made in the image of God, mankind is Spiritual, unlike the creatures of the heavens and earth that God also created. Mankind is also intelligent, relational, communicative, reasoning—and creative. Because of the image of God imprinted in mankind, human beings create. Thus, there is art.
