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

This week we are taking a break from our normal casting routine to spend some time taking care of our families. In the past week Cody welcomed a new member into his family (check out pics of Elliot Bryce on our Facebook page) amidst roofing and plumbing projects on his house. Also, Roy recently moved his family across the country from Wyoming to Georgia.

This week is our final episode on Ideolocal Feminism (I'm sure you are happy) and we answer some questions that come up with this worldview and way of the cultural thinking.

We take a look into a book by Douglas Wilson called Angels in the Architecture and look at the ideal set forth in it to a model for getting our minds and hearts back to where they are needing to be. We look into the idea of how men need to be in the home and family as well as the woman. We talk about the federal headship that needs to be taken up by the husband as the God given head of the home and how he must fall under the authority of God. Also, we talk about that same idea as applying to the wife.

We hope you have enjoyed the series and are excited to bring more great topics and idea for your mind and enjoyment.

***This may be a sensitive topic for some as it has to do with abortion***

This weeks episode is a continuation of last weeks episode joining in the middle of this conversation. Please See Episode 020.4

As we look at entertainment and the arts we continue the series on Ideological Feminism taking a closer look at 2nd wave feminism and the effects it has on our culture even today. Looking into the issues that come out of feminist thinking we see many struggles and hard things brought into our world that we live in. Again when you abandon God and morality you end up with a subjective and existential idea of how to go about life.

In Scintillating Cinema this week we continue our discussion on 1999 film, Cider House Rules starring  Tobey Maguire,  Charlize Theron,  Michael Caine. This week we talk about the law a bit and how the rules are really a list of things that "don't apply" to the living in the house because they are old and outdated. We take this through and apply it to culture today in regards to the ideas about the Bible and the Ten Commandments.

We look into another Scintillating Cinema piece but by Dr. Seuss titled Horton Hears a Who. We look into the idea that a person is a person no matter how small. This idea is the premise for the entire book and movie that came out in 2008.

As we listen to the audio from a video posted by Bill Nye the Science Guy we talk about his lack of consistent and logical flow to his presuppositions about abortion and women's rights. (you can see the video in its entirety here)

This week Daniel, Cody and Roy take on the arts and the philosophical view of existentialism in  the paintings of Jackson Pollock and the 2015 blockbuster movie Mad Max: Fury Road.

In the Philosophical Flusters segment we talk about existentialism and what it is, the good and the bad. We also address how this plays into a worldview outside of christianity.

In the Peculiar Painting segment we talk bout a little history of the modern artist Paul Jackson Pollock and we emphasis one painting in particular titled - One: Number 31 and how this painting expresses his loose and meaningless style of painting called Drip Painting or Action Painting. And we com to a conclusion that it really is childish.

In the Scintillating Cinema Segment we talk about the 2015 action packed blockbuster movie Mad Max: Fury Road. We examine the idea of existentialism that is underlying throughout the movie is different characters. 

As we take on this idea in these different form of art we talk about how we are to view things differently as Christians and how this worldview leads to meaninglessness and chaos.

In this weeks episode Daniel, Cody, and Roy take on the art from a Christian worldview with the idea portrayed in our pop-culture in regards to drugs and its use. 

In Scintillating Cinema we look at the 1994 movie The Mack starring Jim Carey and we examine the idea behind The Mask and its draw it has over Jim's character Stanley Ipkiss. As we talk about this movie and the underlying relation the mask seems to have to drugs we also touch on the idea of alcohol.

In the second part of the discussion we look at the medicated curlicue given in the book by Ken Kesey titled One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. IN this short segment we talk about the medicated culture we live in and the false idea of needing meds to either give us that push we need or to reign us in a bit more.

And in the Diabolical Beats segment we talk about the 2015 #1 song Can't Feel My Face by The Weekend. In this we talk about the non-explicit innuendos about drugs and its effects on the artist. When we get addicted to drugs or other substances we often go from bad to worse.

And in closing we talk about the proper Christian view on these topics and how we are to look at them through a Christian lens. We ask ourselves the question What is our Drug?

This week Dan and Roy talk about stories with sad endings and how we can see there can be victory and peace despite going through suffering and pain in our life. We can look at these mediums of art, through a Christian worldview, and see an underlying theme of pain and sadness without a happy ending but can have hope and peace because of who Christ is and what He has done for us. Though we suffer we can rejoice.
