There was a time when art spoke the truth of the bible. It's true that many people were illiterate at that time.Thus elevating the artist to the place of spiritual teacher in the church. Somewhere along the line the message of truth became corrupted by the glorification of the art and the artist. A problem we still deal with today. When we shift our focus away from creating
art for self glorification and submit the gift back to the Giver, giving the glory to God. Then we can take back what has been stolen and on a personal level use artwork as a means of worship, a voice of prophecy and revive the spiritual teaching tool in the body of Christ.
