The Subversive Nature of True Art

Sunset1

True beauty and art subvert the lie whispered in the Garden that roars in cacophonous echo today: “You shall be like gods!”

We walk the path that was blazed by our forebears; we autonomously seek for meaning in ourselves. Yet, periodically we stand before a sunset or Mozart or some other masterpiece and our autonomous walk is halted and we know, we intimately know, and even bask in the fact that we are not god and our good is not in autonomy, it is outside of us. We need. We need God.
