Today I direct your attention to a post from Michael Spencer from a while back, entitled “A Theology of Everything“.
Evangelicals are particularly bad about not seeing God in the non-religious aspects of life. Sermons abound about how the world is tainted with sin and therefore to be avoided at all possible cost. If we are not talking about God at every possible opportunity, it is assumed that idolatry is happening. The results of this way of thinking are obvious in the world of the arts: Much that is mediocre or just plain bad is hailed as good because it mentions God (cf. every Kirk Cameron film), while much is overlooked, ignored, and rejected that has the fingerprints of God all over it but does not mention His name at every possible opportunity.
