I have a problem with Christian music, part 1

“Art is art, painting is painting, music is music, a story is a story. If it’s bad art, it’s bad religion, no matter how pious the subject.”

“What is a true icon of God to one person may be blasphemy to another. And it is not possible for us flawed human beings to make absolute zealous judgments as to what is and what is not religious art… the smarmy picture of Jesus which I find nauseating may be for someone else a true icon.”

-Madeline L'Engle
