Looking at the world anew through the eyes of a believer of Christ is quite a challenge.
Eyes that See and Ears that Hear continue to pick up so much more about life as we grow spiritually. Nothing seems like it used to be… Have we become more inclined to naturally read between the lines and behind the scene as they say?
It makes one rethink practically everything. In my 9-5, I am a writer and an artist. Does that affect my world view? Drastically.
I come from a culture steeped in mythology with an innate understanding of the conflicts between good and evil that have permeated the millenia from ancient Greece to reach the psyche of the modern day Greek writer and artist. We have been raised with this conflict from mythology and classical Greek literature… all from the B.C. centuries.
Are myths bad? Do they serve a purpose? How are we supposed to view the culture of the world before Christ? What did evil and good mean then? How were the Old Testament stories portrayed historically in ancient texts of ancient neighboring cultures that were contemporary to those events?
Food for thought. It seems like I am always snacking on this lately…..
