The Art of Redemption

The Art of Redemption Radio -Where we Investigate the link between worldview and art 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.

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

How much poetry do you read in a given week? Do you remember the last time you read AND enjoyed a poem? In this week's episode on The Art of Redemption Roy's wife, Christy, joins us as we take a break from our bigger series and enjoy some amusing poetry. We share limericks and some poems from Shel Silverstein's Where the Sidewalk Ends and do a lot of laughing. 

Next week we take a more serious turn and begin our series on The Walking Dead and the role government plays in society.

Are you more comfortable talking about what you do believe or what you don't believe? In this week's episode we discuss the postmodern worldview as it is personified in the last Watchmen character we have to cover: The Silk Spectre.

Listen in as we talk about the difference between objective and subjective truth and the importance of distinguishing the difference.

This week's episode brings us to a character that hits home for many people and for the guys on the cast as well, Dan Dreiberg the Night Owl.

Dan is what seems to be a normal none excitable guy. He wears sweaters and drinks tea. He's a pretty calm guy who you would stereotype as a guy who probably still lives with his parents. But all-in-all he seems like a real and genuine dude.

However, when he gets around other people he waffles, he caves, he adapts and becomes whatever the other people are or stands for what they stand for. In essence he seems to be a spineless wuss.

On the other side of the coin is his vigilante personality: the Night Owl. When he puts on this costume he becomes who he wants to be. He stands up, becomes a man, is able to perform physically and intimately. It seems as if he has this duel personality of sorts.

The issues is that Dan represents the vast majority of people and many of us do this same thing. When it comes time to stand we waffle out unless we have enough people. He isn't a person who does his own thing because of what he holds to as a worldview, that being moral conservativism. He holds to what many Christians do and that is this idea of Convenient Conservitive Christianity. When it works for my good I'll stand up for whats right but I occasionally will press pause on my Christian walk in order to do what I want to do. Dan embodies this idea in his two personalities we see as the man Dan Dreiberg and the Night Owl...

In this weeks episode we talk about Dr. Manhattan and as a warning it is somewhat graphic just due to the fact that Dr. Manhattan is a big blue naked guy in this book and movie. 

As we dive into this episode we hit on the philosophy of materialism. This isn't the kind of materialism where you really like stuff but rather that you have an idea about the material world around us as being The Higher Power in essence. Nancy Pearcey's article on this worldview explains it pretty well in easy terms.

As we examine this idea we line it against truth and see how it is inconsistent, as any false worldview is, and how it has to borrow from a biblical worldview in order to even be feasible. 

Dr. Manhattan goes through a terrible accident but in the end learns how to put himself back together and has a different perspective on things in this world now. He sees into the future, knows more than the average man about mankind, can walk through walls, and is not limited by his physical surroundings, he is in essence God. We examine that idea of his characteristics against God's characteristics and see where Dr. Manhattan falls short. 

In the end we see the inconsistent ideas of materialism and how, as with any false worldview, it must borrow parts of God's truth revealed to us generally and specifically, in order for it to be considered.

This weeks episode takes us into one of our favorite characters from the graphic novel: Rorschach. If you've seen this word before its because this characters name is actually a phycology test called the rorschach test in which you look at a formless blot on a card and tell the administrator of the test what you see.

Here as we look into the worldview and character of the comic book character by the same name we see some interesting things, namely the worldview he holds to which is moral atheism. Moral Atheism as explained by a professor of philosophy at the University of Massachusetts Amherst Louise M. Antony "we find moral value to be immanent in the natural world, arising from the vulnerabilities of sentient beings and from the capacities of rational beings to recognize and to respond to those vulnerabilities and capacities in others."  

The issues in this idea is what we talk about in this episode. If people are not inherently moral as determined by God we make ourselves to be God and therefore moralism can be as diverse and flexible as the personalities that people possess. What may be immoral for one may not be considered immoral for another. It leaves the door wide open for our natural human depravity to run the show, and nothing good will com of that.

Listen in and see what you think...
