Churchpoast IV (DRAAAGOOOO)

I’m glad to learn Greg Boyd has both a blog and a YouTube. He’s in my top five and his pamphlet Letters to a Skeptic would be my first recommendation to people in this crowd interested in Christianity.

The Bible selection is mercifully short this week :-P.

It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.

Proverbs 25:2

This week’s art is “Isaiah 6:2-3” by Rob-Joseph on DeviantArt:

I really enjoy this guy’s art style.

2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.

3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.

Isaiah 6:2-3

As a matter of aesthetic harmony, all apologetics should be enjoyed with some Bach playing in the background.

Yeee boi.

About Aeoli Pera

Maybe do this later?

    Have you read Chesterton’s Orthodoxy? It’s a much better book in my mind. And I can’t imagine anyone who wasn’t already Catholic enjoying that video. I think it’s almost unbearable, and I’m Catholic. Also, Rob-Joseph’s art is a bit crap. There’s any number of medieval European painters who are far better, all Christian – early Netherlandish art for instance: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Early_Netherlandish_painting

    If I could make one criticism of you it’s that you have very bad taste. I don’t do this in the spirit of raising myself above you – I am nothing – but of raising you up, out of goodwill. You’re wasting your time on these people.

      I mean the body of art produced by Christian civilization is probably the greatest that the world has ever seen. It’s like watching someone who could be swimming in a pool of clear, sparkling wine take a dive in a sewer. Why aren’t you reading the Divine Comedy and Paradise Lost instead of trashy SF/F novels? Why aren’t you admiring Rembrandt and Bosch and all that instead of a middling fantasy artist on DeviantArt? Why aren’t you reading Chesterton instead of morons like Vox Day? It’s almost criminal the way you’re ignoring your artistic heritage, which is far deeper, more beautiful and more profound than any of this other garbage. It almost seems like a sin, but I don’t have the theological grounding to say for sure – surely though, you have some duty to preserve and propagate good Christian art? A duty of stewardship, and a duty to guide those Christians who pay attention to you to the best products of their religion.

        Dante was a pedestalizing eunuch-cuck. His “Great Art” is trash on a moral level. Vox Day is miles ahead of Chesteron. Artistic heritage? How little you know. Go mumble and bow your head in front of some Greek icons, you Orthodox idolater.
