Is your work “meaningless” because it’s not “Christian”?
Is the work that we create that does not have pictures of the cross, a fish or the gospel message within it of less value than work that contains these things?
“…is all art by Christians what many recognize as ‘Christian Art’?”
It’s the crossroads that many of us as Christian creatives face. Now that we have given our lives over to Christ, and now that we have given Him access to our talent, how will we see this relationship reflected in our work? Many immediately expect comic books that tell bible stories and graphic designs for Christian t-shirts…but is all art by Christians what many recognize as “Christian Art”?
Obviously we would see some expression of our faith in what we create the same way we hear it in our verbal expression. But do we quote scripture in every conversation?
