The Art of Redemption
About This Show
The Art of Redemption Radio -Where we Bring a Christian Worldview to the Arts
In this show the hosts Cody Anderson, Daniel Uptain, and Roy Uptain examine the Arts from a biblical perspective. We take on many different philosophical and theological views and line them up with The Scripture. We pull out the error and fallacy of the secular worldview that lies within all forms of The Arts. In doing this we examine how we are to view these arts as followers of Christ and how we need to engage our culture around us. These areas of The Arts include but are not limited to: movies, music, literature, paintings, drawings, digital, and graphic design.

EP. 029.3 LOTR Series: The Reality of True Evil and the Fall
3 days ago
This weeks episode takes us into the Fall portion of the Christian narrative. As we dive into the aspect of the Fall and how it has effected us and allowed for evil to be in this world we also talk about a couple other notable "evil" pieces of art, one of which Albert Moeller talked about on The Briefing this week, The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty, who passed away this month and Hannibal by Thomas Harris. The interesting thing about these is that they may not have been origanly intended to be horror films, rather they were more aiming for theology of evil. What happens when you deny evil exists? You end up embracing it We read a few excerpts from these novels and see how truly evil a man can be but with that thought in mind we are all just as evil as they are. IN the episode we talk about the evils portrayed in LOTR and how those things reflect our Fall away from God and His created order of things. We talk about Encounter with Jesus by Keller for some encouraging thoughts and insist into he depravity of mankind. How we got there and what it truly means. We talk about how important it is to actually get a glimpse into the reality of what true evil is like. If this wasn't discouraging to you or maybe it was then join us next week as we talk about Redemption! And please if you enjoy the show share us around your social media peeps!
