Q&A: What is your opinion on the term “Christian art?"

The following is from an interview I did with Project Paperie in 2012. Want to schedule an interview? Hit me up.


What is your opinion on the term “Christian art” or “Christian artist?"

I understand what people are trying to do when they say that, but I just don’t think it’s accurate. If the word “Christian” means Christ-like, then the only thing that can accurately be described as “Christian” is a person. Being Christ-like always means loving and sacrificing for others. Art can be no more “Christian” than a bag of potato chips. Religious or biblical, maybe, but only human beings have the ability to be Christ-like.
