American Idol for the Glory of God #1

Now I will not make any statements that AI aims to glorify God. In fact, it aims to sound secular, neutral or even mum to religious inclinations.  But as in

1Co 10:31  So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

I really love watching American Idol.  There is so much theology in it.

Theology? Let me start giving you my top ten reasons why I love watching AI and how I praise God when I see traces of theology in the middle of it.

Reason No. 1:  AI reminds me of the marvelous work of the Holy Spirit.

Whenever you see raw talent, have you ever wondered who gave that? Have you ever wondered who made man? Such a solitary creature who can sing melodies and harmonies and ideas all at once!   I remember RC Sproul explaining why he loved art.  “I praise the Holy Spirit whenever I look at a masterpiece!” he exclaimed.

But then the pundits would say, “I only see talented people in AI who have forgotten the real source of their talent.” Well, that doesn’t really diminish the fact that talent is from God.

I celebrate the marvelous work of God in man when I watch talent.

Exo 4:11  Then the LORD said to him, “Who has made man’s mouth? Who makes him mute, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, the LORD?
