The writing assignment in history class today was to answer this question: Do you think that religious art, such as paintings of Biblical scenes and sculptures of people from the Bible and Christian history, are effective in encouraging people in their faith?
Sarah wrote, "Yes, I do think so. People were excellent at doing it in older times years and years ago. Because art is almost feelings and beliefs on paper, people will wonder why she/he made it? Then they will probably google it, and it might affect their lives."
Noah wrote, "No. Looking at an old bearded naked man doesn't make me feel like worshiping. Nor does art make me feel anything but sympathetic for the slaves that chiseled the stone. However, it does remind us of past heroes that led the world and Christianity to what it is today."
