It fully states, in the Bible, that the skies and nature reflect God’s glory.
But many (Christian) artists/writers etc. say great fictions also reflect God. I love the idea- but this doesn’t seem to have any biblical basis. It MAY appear a given if you believe in a Platonist idea of Him. Most do not these days.
Does God like human* fictions- will they be ressurected like the physical world? Can we know anything for certain about this…or is it anyone’s guess?
*Because, surely, if God is not of the Platonist idea of the Forms, then surely we invented our own fictions rather than realising pre-existing ideas. Shakespeare dreampt up A Midsummer Night’s Dream, George Lucas Star Wars…rather than both portraying them whilst both fictions already existed externally from their ‘creators’, which would make it more of a ‘discovery’ akin to Darwin and evolution and Einstein’s relativity.
And if they are our finite, Earthly ideas, I am concerned that they bear no true relation (except in, perhaps, faint symbolism) to the christian idea of our ultimate fate via God’s design.
Looking for Biblical quotes here, if at all possible, or a philosophical humdinger that would fully explain it.
It must be grand for Christians who adore wildlife and geography to feel their obsession is definitely, without a shadow of a doubt, something that will be fulfilled (for it says as much in the Bible). Not so good for those of us concerned, mainly, with artistic visions, where we can only wildly guess or hope.
