The Christian content is too deep for pop culture. And the love of money and fame is not of Christianity.

Your right, I agree with you too.

There are always temptations to strive after and worship the excellence itself because the creation world has its own wonder-filled charms upon us humans that cause deeply pleasant heartaches and awe, but we Christians must look up to God through it all because He is the Purpose, Means, Recepient and the End of all. It's always constant choices to make; pointing to the Creator or pointing to the creation. We must offer ourselves to the Creator, no one less. Observation and skills must be learned with diligence, though ideas are born. Somehow our minds have wonderful reproductive ability, because we were created in God's image. All to His glory.

I agree, with this addition...The visual arts were virtually eliminated from the Church after the Reformation. We must reclaim them. But to do so we need to recover the skills and craftsmanship necessary to be good stewards. Too many Christians think that we can just "do art" and call it Art. Great musicians study their art. They practice, practice, practice. Visual artists need to study their art and, like the musician, practice and practice. We are not to "compete", but to be good stewards we should strive to perfect our art. Poor quality work has no attraction and misrepresents the Giver of Gifts.

We will never be same as the world, we shouldn't. The world is trying to do something else, please themselves and plus working for Satan. Live for God, all for His glory in whatever you do.

As a happily married person who do I have to listen to ads re single contacts? How do I get around the ad?

We Christians should remember our creativity is for God's glory alone and not for pleasing men or for personal glory or egoistic satisfaction. The ancient Assyrians were pretty genius artistic but they had not much significance other than being a background to the ancient Israel and telling us how plain cruel blood-thirsty the ancient Assyrians were. Christians don't need to catch up with the pop culture; often art gets born and the excellence is discovered and survives apart from trends. If anything is destined to be created, God will make it burst out into the world and no human can contain it within himself. Art is excellent only when it magnifies and turns our attention accurately to what God already has created or what He has planted in the human hearts, not really pointing out to the artificial production itself. What normal grown-ups would keep gazing upon a miniture mansion when they can have a real mansion with a lot of real rescued victims in it under the bright overwhelming starry skies? None.
