I used to think that creativity is limitless, and it almost is, but there are limits, especially for those of us who care about glorifying God. God is the limit. I’ll tell you what I mean. I saw a graphic posted ostensibly by a major denomination that said something reprehensible. This graphic sought to identify God with humanity’s sin as if to say, “It’s okay, God is this way too.” That is a line we cannot afford to cross. The end of creativity comes at the point where we forget who we are and attempt to create God in our image. That’s exactly backwards. We are created in His image and not the other way around. When we start to redefine God based on our sin nature, we cross the limit of creativity and enter the realm of apostasy. To be clear, God does not identify with our sin. If He did, sending Jesus would have been a waste. Sin separates us from God and because of this, we all need to trust in Jesus and the sacrifice He made for us.
My prayer is that this graphic was created by someone outside the offices of this denomination who slapped their label on it, because if not, that denomination is crossing lines that cannot be crossed.
God in His sovereign wisdom gave us boundaries. He gave them in a book, a book called the Bible. Within that book are infinite possibilities for creating to His glory—infinite ways to show people the love and grace of a perfect God, who loves so much He gave His only Son, not so that we could remain wallowing in our sin, but so that we could be free of it forever.
The possibilities are endless, but don’t cross the line.
