The freedom of the Christian artist

Religious subjects are no guarantee that a work of art is Christian. On the other hand, the art of an artist who never paints the head of Christ, never once paints an open tomb, may be magnificent Christian art….


Some Christian artists will never use religious themes. This is a freedom the artist has in Christ under the leadership of the Holy Spirit

—Francis Schaeffer, Art and the Bible
