Time for a Great Cartoon (Man as Creative)

Screen Shot 2014-10-12 at 5.49.51 AM

Why does man create?  Could it be that because we are made in the image and likeness of God, we have a desire to produce things, make art, craft objects that express that truth?  We are not meaningless accidents formed in the primordial belch of the universe, but individuals who express our creatureliness, even when we are bored!

How do you express your creativity?

The late apologist Dr. Francis Schaeffer put it succinctly:  “We have in a real sense lost sense of the lostness of the lost.”

Questions:

2.  What biblical texts come to your mind about LOSTNESS?

Time for a Great Quote (John Piper on Academic Insurrection)

“Therefore, the task of all Christian scholarship- not just biblical studies- Screen Shot 2014-10-09 at 8.14.02 PMis to study reality as a manifestation of God’s glory, to speak and write about it with accuracy, and to savor the beauty of God in it, and to make it serve the good Screen Shot 2014-10-09 at 8.18.45 PMof man. It is an abdication of scholarship when Christians do academic work with little reference to God. If all the universe and everything in it exist by the design of an infinite, personal God, to make his manifold glory known and loved, then to treat any subject without reference to God’s glory is not scholarship but insurrection.”-John Piper (from God’s Passion for His Glory:  Living the Vision of Jonathan Edwards, p. 43).
