The arts are powerful mediums for presenting the Gospel of Jesus Christ. With the proper creative team, groups of people who typically roll their eyes at Christian entertainment would instead be captivated by the ingenuity of high quality innovative art. With the arts, we can take intellectually dens concepts and present them in simple terms. This makes for a pleasurable experience and, consequently, people are inclined to ask for more. Furthermore, because it tends to be enjoyable, people are inclined to let down their defenses, thereby making it easier to help people overcome barriers to faith in God which results
in peace with God, direction, meaning, significance, purpose, and a moral compass by which we can navigate through life in a meaningful way resulting in wholesome relationships and a moral and meaningful life.

(Exodus 31:1-4, New International Version)
In this blog I take a close look at a wide variety of topics using the Bible as my lens. When we look at the world through the lens of scripture we discover life-changing truth that transforms us. We discover our identity, purpose and worth. We find answers to life's most pressing questions. “If you don't know where you're going any road will take you there.” But when we look at the world through the lens of scripture we find the "way, the truth and the life;" then we live life to the fullest.
