10 June 2010 (Chamashee/Teruah)
Day #87, 5934 AM
Creativity as Destruction
Putting Yahweh's Gifts to Righteous Use

    "Whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Master [Yah'shua] and not to men, knowing that from the Master you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Master Messiah. But he who does wrong will be repaid for what he has done, and there is no partiality" (Col.3:23-25, NKJV).

You may, in recent General Elections in America and Great Britain, have noticed how verbs have substitited for nouns. In Barak Obama's Democratic (Liberal/Socialist) campaign for the US Presidency 'Change' was the political slogan. In David Cameron's Conservative campaign for the UK Government 'Change' was also the political slogan. Change is all very well but it quite meaningless unless you know what the intended change is going to be. Obama actually kept his promise to effect 'change' for 'changes' he has indeed made but not at all what most Americans thought. Cameron has promised 'change' too...it remains to be seen what he 'changes', though. Most Americans now believe Obama's changes have been for the worse.

In common with many home educators, I am a great admirer of Professor Ken Robinson who has dedicated his life to revolutionising education so that a child can discover his or her creative abilities. A very noble aspiration. However, like Obama and Cameron, 'creativity' - like 'change' - seems to be a kind of open-ended goal - where creativity takes us is not as important, it seems, for him and humanists like him as the fact that one is being 'creative'.

Creativity is indeed an incredible force planted in the soul by the Creator. However, it was not given to be used indiscriminately. Not all 'creativity' necessarily reflects the will of the Creator who made it in the first place. Thus Robinson justifies and lauds the 'creativity' of Hollywood in overturning what had been essentially family-oriented and wholesome morals and values of the 1950's and before and entering the fray of "sex, drugs and rock-'n-roll".

As you look at the films being made today there can be no doubt that they reflect creative genius, if only in the realm of animation. But that really isn't the issue. What we need to address is the question: What are they creating? What is this genius being used for? For it should be apparent that not all creativity and genius is godly. If we can find it in such men as Adolf Hitler and Mao Tse-Tung (as we can), then we should pause to reconsider our goals, for these men (along with many other evil, creative geniuses like them) have 'changed' the world for the worse. If creative genius can be used to make weapons of mass destruction then creative genius can be used to destroy the soul too. And it has. (See, for example, our website on music).

Change is only ever good provided it is change in the right direction. Creativity is good provided it is harnessed and subjected to heading down that right direction. And genius is good provided it serves good and not evil. So what actually do you want to use your creativity for?

Change and creativity without being linked to a concrete goal which may be tested against Torah to determine whether it serves God and truth as opposed to the Devil and lies are useless and harmful. Today's Úlite, along with their political and bureaucratic henchmen, are experts in psychology. They have obtained the knowledge from demons who have been studying humans for millennia. They know how to manipulate and control the human psyche, how to accuse the proponents of righteousness as dangerous cultists when it is they who have formed, and are the pillars of, the Arch-Cult-of-Cults. They are sophisticated, clever, creative and dangerous, even as Satan is.

Ken Robinson is right when he says there is a need to inhance creativity and innovation but wrong to impose no borders or boundaries. There's still a Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil in the world and its fruit is over-rated and over-subscribed. In fact, it's destroying humanity, which is why Yahweh banned humanity from partaking of it in the first place. Ken Robinson is right when he says there is a need for children and adults alike to reconnect with our true selves but omits mentioning the safety net of the commandments: some things are allowed, and some aren't. If we involve ourselves in the forbidden zone we will use our creativity for evil, perhaps even without knowing it.

Scientists have, for instance, recently announced the creation of the first artificial cell and living organism. Well, it's not quite that, because they did not synthesise all the building blocks de nove (from scratch) but 'borrowed' them from other living things and simply reassembled them to make something differently. They want to use such artificial cells to mass produce drugs amongst other things. The folly of this Tree of Death science will become readily apparent in due course, along with genetically-modified food. Man, for all his supposed 'cleverness' and 'creativity', will be shown - yet again - to be a complete fool when he removes Yahweh's boundaries and sets himself up as God.

I still find inspiration in Ken Robinson, and others like him, but I am careful not cross the lines that he does or advocates. I believe as believers we should be dynamic, creative and progressive....but only where Yahweh permits - and that's in plenty of spheres! I believe that every boy and girl should be allowed to find her or her gifting, be encouraged to develop it, and to serve Yahweh and mankind with it.

Go and be creative today but make sure it is for the glory of your Master!
