I disagree with a lot of modern ideas. I disagree with the music of today, the art of today, and the psychologists. Did you know that psychology and modern art started around the same time? They both teach the same thing. Delve into your feelings. Do whatever your heart desires. As long as you are happy then everything is ok. Whatever looks good or sounds good to you is fine. It doesn’t matter what other people say or think. It just matters what you believe. And everybody’s belief is different so we all are believing in the right thing. (By the way, music wasn’t far behind her cousins.)
Most of you know my feelings about psychology. To me God is my one and only psychologist. Why would anyone want to trust a fallible human?! You see so many Christians today going into counseling or psychology. Why is that? Can’t the Bible show you what to do? And besides that God gave us parents and preachers that we can go to for any counsel we may need. But I’m getting off of my main topic - modern art.
It started in the 1880s as a revolt against the realists. The Impressionists painted blurry looking images which moved on to painting in shapes and cubes and then contorting everything we see today into something that only the artist can understand. (Or at least he says he does. I don’t believe they really know what they paint half the time.) They are trying to portray their "feelings" onto paper. They have to explain what they paint so people can understand what they are trying to portray. Shouldn’t you be able to look at a painting and understand it without an explanation? Shouldn’t what you paint resemble what you see instead of what you feel or imagine it to be? It just ends up looking confusing and meaningless to everybody else. "But God is not the author of confusion, but of peace..." I Corinthians 14:33a
I can paint a picture with meaning in a realistic style. I can put across a "feeling" but in a normal, real way. For example, I painted an Indian, and you can look at him and see the sadness I wanted to put across. I painted a ballerina dancing in a dream world and most people (mainly the women lol) got the meaning of her dropping her handkerchief for her prince to come. You can even put expression in animal’s faces, too without contorting the image into something you can’t even recognize. Something that just looks like a jumble of colors and shapes that makes you dizzy by just looking at it isn’t art.
The devil likes to use the arts to get people. And the scary part is that it is working. We can see why Contemporary Christian Music is wrong. It sounds like the world. Why can’t we see that modern art is wrong?! It’s just like music. Chaotic and loud! There really is no meaning to it no matter what they say. A portrayal of an object not in it’s real form is a mockery. God designed things a certain way for a reason. Even scientists will tell you that even though some things in the universe look chaotic or random, it really isn’t. It’s all perfectly planned by a perfect God.
