Is culture enough? Christianity and art : Comments

By Peter Sellick, published 17/11/2020

We can trace the museumisation of church art to the process of secularisation aided by the interest in comparative religion.

Perhaps one purpose of music in churches is to relieve the deadly dullness of the sermons which iterate the nonsense of virgins having babies, life after death, substitutionary atonement and the other revolts against reason which define Christianity. Moving the music from church to concert hall allows one to appreciate the beauty of the music without the accompanying commercials. It is like TV without ads.

Nope! I think some honest introspection is called for with a focus on the almighty truth, warts and all truth commission, followed by a reformation to what was there 300 years before pagan sun-worshipper Constantine and "his" first council of Nicosia.

Until that's done, anything else (f-art, culture?) is meaningless or just BS window dressing/covering huge wide gaping cracks and tons of self-delusion! Not assisted by the huge (evil incarnate) paganisation of Christianity!

David F, you have hit the nail on the head. Although what passes for music in many of today's churches makes one wonder why people even attend at all.
