When Israel to heart fell into sin the Bible says that the reason for their failure was the seeking of idols instead of God. In fact God ,through His prophets, said that they would become spiritually deaf and dumb just like the objects they worshipped. We should take this warning to heart when we seek to fill our lives with everything this world has to offer. Art becomes an idol when used in perverse ways like pornogrphy, or in mystical ways as in the eastern religious practices of meditation of objects. I'm sure there are others too. Just the fact that millions of dollars are spent on what is really just paint on canvas shows a blindness in our culture. When we seek the One Who opens blind eyes and ears we can have a spiritual awakening and see ourselves as we really are. Then, by the help of God, we can become more like Jesus, as we follow Him.
