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

 

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.

As we bring this series to a close in Part 4 of the Zombie Apocalypse series we want to take time and step back to think about what does all this have to do with Christianity?

Why should we watch post-apocalyptic films or read literature that falls into this vein? What good does it do for us?

As we think about those questions and answer them in this episode we also address how this genre of art speaks to the issues in our current culture. It shows us our problems and diseases and helps us better understand the world and how to address it when we are living within its bounds.

Often we want to disengage or we have this idea of soaping up and washing our hands of this kind of thinking and art. We take steps away thinking it's not good or right for us to engage in such brutal and violent things but that reveals is our lack of understanding in the deeper things and issues of the art. 

We are being taught, communicated to, molded and persuaded by the artists in these films and literature and we often don't take time to think about how that really effects us and our lives, not to mention our children and future generations in this world.

We need to take a stand against the popular thoughts and opinions and learn how to engage the culture from a right and Biblical perspective.

In this episode we are all back together and talk about a particular episode from the Walking Dead in Season 2 where the group has apprehended a straggler from another bigger and more dangerous group. What they do with him and how they handle the decision making of that outcome is very interesting and really reflects a particular worldview.

TO apply this to our lives and current cultural situation, do Zombies apply to the election? Are there worldviews we are using that we use to show that the means will justify the end? 

This idea is what we tackle on this episode as we look into the philosophy of Instrumentalism and how that is modeled in The Walking Dead and how we can see this today in our culture and especially in the coming presidential election.

Join us as we discuss this worldview and its application to the TV series and to our lives today. If you enjoy the show please consider sharing us with your friends and giving us a rating and review or chat with us on twitter and Facebook!

Do you like who you are? Do you know who you are? Can you truly know who you are?
 
We live in the  “Ego Pagan Era” = We worship the self.
 
This leads to a crisis of identity because the self cannot introspectively turn in on itself and figure out what it is. The Self cannot know the Self.
 
This means that the harder we look for identity the more we realize how unknowable it is. This causes us, out of a growing sense of desperation, to search even harder for some sense of identity. 
 
So we start looking for others to validate our existence and our choices. We post status updates on Facebook which really just say, “please authenticate my existence."
 
How does all this tie into The Walking Dead?
 
In a lot of ways the zombie apocalypse strips away the social institutions that insist on everyone operating by the same moral horizons. 
 
In a world of zombies there is no government. There is no religion. People actually have the chance to take the message of individualism seriously.
 
In The Walking Dead many of them do. Shane wouldn't dare steal Rick's wife, then decide to kill Rick to get her before the zombie apocalypse. Why is he willing to do it now?
 
One of the ways we as christians combat individualism is by taking the second greatest commandment seriously. We are to love our neighbor whole-heartedly.

This week we start a new series on post-apocoliptic art, mainly we will focus on the AMC raving TV series: The Walking Dead. But before we really dive into the show we start off by looking at some key ideas about zombies and post-apocoliptic art.

We read a handful of poems along with some quotes from Alissa Wilkinson and Robert Joustra's new book: How to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse: Zombies, Cylons, Faith, and Politics at the End of the World that really tackle the essence of what we will be covering in this month's series.

Listen in as we dig deeper into what lies beneath the surface of a zombie...

Poems Sited:

Dover Beach By Matthew Arnold
Lucifer in Starlight By George Meredith
