The Best There Is
Graphic and literary art isn't necessarily more aesthetically beautiful than music is consonant. Art of any kind is nothing more than the artist's expression, whether of beauty or ugliness, substance or emptiness. Each art consumer should discriminate as carefully as consumers of any other commodity. Trouble is, most of us are indiscriminate in our choices of foods, amusements, status symbols and most anything else we buy. That failure to discriminate based on our needs, and the quality of those things pushed at us to meet them, includes the church--a painful indictment, considering we personally know The Best There Is.
