Again, Watterson illustrates a profound perspective on life: man can act as God and create his own lifeforms!

Talk about creativity being twisted to serve one’s own whims! God has made us in His image — and that involves relationships, being careful stewards over God’s creation, and possessing a deep sense of creativeness.  But that creativity can be used to honor God or create our own idols.

If you’ve not read TImothy Keller’s book Counterfeit Gods, I would highly Screen Shot 2015-10-25 at 5.37.45 PMrecommend it.   He reminds us that an idol is not a bad thing.  It is often a good thing raised to the level of an ultimate thing.  He gives a two-minute explanation of his book here.
