Politics don’t shape culture…but art does

Hagia Sophia: Try walking in their and not thinking about God

Pascal once wrote, “every man is almost always led to believe not through proof, but through that which is attractive.” If culture is shaped by cult (the religion or lack there of common in the populous),  and cult is shaped by what is attractive (as Pascal claimed) – then we must conclude that what is attractive shapes culture. Art – movies, songs, poetry, posters, murals etc – impacts the world.

Christians need to think about that next time they go to the movies, watch TV, or listen to the radio.
