Communicating the Gospel Cannot be Done with Garbage
Can Christians communicate a consistently Christian message through art forms that have adopted the aesthetic and stylistic canons of Dada or Surrealism? More specifically, should Christians be allowed to imitate any artistic, literary, or musical style that expresses absurdity, nihilism, and chaos, for the purpose of communicating the gospel? I think most Christians would agree that neither of these questions should be answered in the affirmative.
