The Art of Redemption Radio -Where we Bring a Christian Worldview to the Arts

 

In this show the hosts Cody Anderson, Daniel Uptain, and Roy Uptain examine the Arts from a biblical perspective. We take on many different philosophical and theological views and line them up with The Scripture. We pull out the error and fallacy of the secular worldview that lies within all forms of The Arts. In doing this we examine how we are to view these arts as followers of Christ and how we need to engage our culture around us. These areas of The Arts include but are not limited to: movies, music, literature, paintings, drawings, digital, and graphic design.

We open this episode with some talk about family worship and some of the practices that Roy and Cody do with their families. For some more info on what they talked about her are the links: New City Catechism, My First Catechism, Don Whitney Family Worship 101

In this weeks episode we take a look into what the outcome of the worldview of mysticism leads to. We talk about the life and work of Mark Rothko, an American painter of Russian Jewish decent, often identified as an abstract expressionist painter.

As we look into the chronology of his work (found here but not completely chronological) we can see that as he got deeper into Mysticism things became less and less detailed, less and less meaningful. His work ends in massive black paintings displayed in the Rothko Chapel in Houston Texas. 

In the end when we try to dismiss God from our lives it leads to despair. Mark Rothko committed suicide before he found whatever he was searching for. He was looking for meaning outside of God and did not find it, nor will anyone. All worldviews, outside of a true Christian and Biblical worldview, leads to despair.

This weeks episode continues in the Mysticism series as we takes a look at Jim Carry's commencement speech to MUM University graduates and the painting he made about our light shinning through.

Jim Carry has some great things to say in this speech but within the context of his speech and his worldview, that is tainted by mysticism, you are lead into a spiral of never-ending nothing. There some things that make sense in his speech but they soon devolve and end up contradicting his previous statements.

His painting expresses his worldview and his ideal and the idea that he is the light, in fact, we are all the light and we need to let it shine through for all to see in all its glory. As we line up his speech with a Christian worldview and philosophy we can very easily see that what ensues breaks down the mysticism worldview that Carry and this school holds to.

In this weeks episode we are down a man but continue in the series on Eastern Mysticism focusing on the movie Avatar, released in 2009 (a huge technological advancement in movies as being the first movie to be made specifically for 3D). 

As wee look into this movie we; reveal the inconsistent ideas of eastern mysticism, talk about the supposed balance that is the goal of "Eywa', the divine one of life in the movie, and how this worldview has to borrow from Total Truth in order to make sense of reality. 

These other ideas and worldviews, should cause us as believers to consider the greatness of God and cause us to worship and glorify Him more because what He has established and put in motion holds together and remains consistent, though our natural sinful heart tries to reject it.

 In this week's episode the guys are joined by a real artist Gloria Blinn to discuss how eastern mysticism affects the arts.

The group discusses the importance of what art really is and how it causes us to worship. The worship, if not kept in check by Total Truth, errs off into world-views that just don't work, i.e. eastern mysticism. As they go on in this discussion they really draw on the work of Vincent Van Gogh and talk about what his driving force was when painting and how his worldview came through in his work.

Worldview comes out in all the arts and we as Christians are responsible to be making reflect our creator and communicate His character in our art.

Mentioned Works:

Art Pieces: Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh

 In this weeks episode we start a 5 week series on Eastern Mysticism. As we dive into this topic we start with an introduction on what it is and its attempts to understand the world in which we live.

But before we get into the topic we listen to Daniel tell a story of a van that caught fire and the ensuing adventure with his dad and then Roy talks about the Brexit issue that took place this last week and how unserious we as Americans see things like this in history.

We start off the conversation with a question you might not hear very often: What do you think about orange peels? Are they real? Or simply your imagination? As we look into Eastern Mysticism we talk about a story written by J.D. Salinger (the author of The Catcher and the Rye) found in his book titled Nine Stories, called "Teddy". In this story we see a young boy who holds to a worldview deeply rooted in Eastern Mysticism and we examine how his worldview affects not only his life but those around him.

We also examine how we can approach the opportunity to talk to people looking to Eastern Mysticism for answers about The Total Truth. Christianity provides true hope and redemption in a world that is hurt and broken.

Piece of Art: "Teddy" by J.D. Salinger, C.S. Lewis
