Is there a link between art and morality?
Though some may find this question difficult to answer, there is a quick answer.
Have you ever felt that your teenager’s entertainment habits have been unhealthy, to say the least, but you just couldn’t articulate why?
Consider this… all art and entertainment has a moral component to it.
Now, some will deny this; but, why else would certain movies, magazines, songs, or jokes be labeled “dirty?”
Think about this… sometimes the only thing between art and pornography is the intention of the artist.
All artists have a worldview that, whether intentionally or unintentionally, influence the patrons of their art, i.e., a painting, a song, a movie, a picture, or a drawing.
So, as good parents we need to help our children discern good and healthy entertainment habits from an early age.
