Question: I believe that God gave man creativity for a purpose. Creativity can lead to enjoyment and can edify, though it does require restraint. When discerning evil within religious and secular art, the Holy Spirit, the Scriptures, and historical context is your best guide (always is). I especially enjoy visual recreations of landscape, wildlife, and such. Art in the right context can be an appreciation of God's creation. When a pure and sanctified heart expresses itself, it is a beautiful thing. When the unsanctified express themselves, it is UNSANCTIFIED. A good tree brings forth good fruit as well as a bad tree brings forth bad fruit.

Answer: Thank you for your commet.
