As we bring this series to a close in Part 4 of the Zombie Apocalypse series, we want to take time and step back to think and ask some questions about what all this has to do with Christianity. Why should we watch post-apocalyptic films or read literature that falls into this vein? What good does it do for us?
As we think about those questions and answer them in this episode, we also address how this genre of art speaks to the issues in our current culture. It shows us our problems and diseases and helps us better understand the world and how to address it when we are living within its bounds.
Often we want to disengage or we have this idea of soaping up and washing our hands off of this kind of thinking and art. We step away thinking it’s not good or right for us to engage in such brutal and violent things. But this type of thinking only reveals our lack of understanding in the deeper things and issues of the art.
We are being taught, communicated to, molded, and persuaded by the artists in these films and literature. We often don’t take time to think about how that really effects us and our lives, not to mention our children and future generations in this world. We need to take a stand against the popular thoughts and opinions and learn how to engage the culture from a right and biblical perspective.

The Art of Redemption Radio—Bringing a Christian Worldview to the Arts.
In this show hosts Cody Anderson, Daniel Uptain, and Roy Uptain examine the Arts from a biblical perspective. We take on many different philosophical and theological views and line them up with the Scripture. We pull out the error and fallacy of the secular worldview that lies within all forms of the Arts. In doing this we examine how we are to view these arts as followers of Christ and how we need to engage our culture around us. These areas of the Arts include but are not limited to: movies, music, literature, paintings, drawings, digital, and graphic design.
