"As a teenager, I discovered the work of Chuck Colson, Francis Schaeffer, and C. S. Lewis. These men had a different perspective on art and its merits"
I remember reading that the old churches were set against the theatre and its produce. They saw them as a bad influence on the minds of the congregations so encouraged them to make better use of their minds and their time.
Today we are surrounded by theatre Hollywood and celebrity status as demi-gods.
Where adults and children today are constantly bombarded with fiction, petty moralising, violence and anti-Christian values with the actors becoming overpaid heroes and celebrity role models.
The old churches were right about the better use of the congregations minds - but they would be horrified to see the cultural morass which poisons the mind which is available in such myriad proportion today.
