I wrote for this book and got a favorable reply. My copy is on the way.

Here is another short video by Dr Zacharais. What is your Perception of Beauty? What is your concept of beauty? Should beauty and art have a hedge of morality and ethics around it?

This book seems very interesting, what with all the disparaging and degrading books and articles questioning the divinity of Jesus Christ. Probably, this is a prelude to the coming rapture of the church of God when Jesus Christ will come to fetch His loyal followers. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.

I study the Cultural Studies, and in the time of one lesson I had occasion to see how looks the art today. We don't see all ideas of artists - they for example hurt themselves and they advertise gay "culture" or bully animals. For me it isn't real art, it's something strange and hideous.
My illness is asthma with allergic base - this is answer for Your question. Thank You for Your concern - I'm feeling better :) In Krakow many people have this disease because of air pollution and wet climate.
God bless You Amrita.

Hi Amrita:)

This is surely a very interesting book.

The video is fascinating.

Artists at present think that can paint or write anything they want in the name of art and they demand artistic freedom.

My personal feeling is that artists have no right to hurt the religious sentiments of other people.After all artists want to make money and sometimes they want to earn name and fame by denigrating the religious sentiments of others. I can think of Salman Rusdie,Hussain and Dan Brown who made money and hogged the limelight because they insulted the religious sentiments of people.

I think art should be subjected to morality and ethics and no artist has the right to despise and insult other peoples feelings and sentiments.

Best wishes:)
Joseph

Dear Mel, Zimb and Mr Joseph, thank yhou so much for your valuable responses.

The uniqness of Jesus must be upheld as He is the cornorstone of our faith. All sorts of teachings are creeping into the "church" and we have to watch out for those which are not suported by the Bible.


All forms of art and beauty are acceptable if and when they uphold the works and truth of God and uphold the dignity and honor of man. Artists and writers should not denigrade and insult anybody 's faith as Mr JP says very eloquoently in his comment.
