Christians have decidedly failed in discerning goodness in our art. In embracing a mediocre copy of an already mediocre popular culture, we have left discernment and turned instead to a dangerous isolationism that rejects the God-given power of art. Perhaps a complete paradigm shift is needed.I'm not trying to knock Christian music, art, drama or any other form of creativity. I'm just unimpressed by those of us who instead of generating a unique product of our own, choose to imitate and "kosher-ise" that of the secular.
Engaging pop culture is not about being like them, but understanding it and being able to offer something better and far more attractive (cheesy Christian movies need not apply).
