Not About Art: Minister of Culture’s Fistfight with Israeli Artists

“I have never come across art created beyond the Green Line [occupied territories] that justifies being displayed in the museum. Though the settlers have big houses and money, excellent conditions for creativity, they are busy killing and oppressing the Arab population.” (Ellen Ginaton, former Tel Aviv Museum of Art curator for Israeli art)

Be Zealous for Good Works

In just a single sentence (Titus 2:14), Paul spells out the four basic components of the Gospel which should be firmly hammered into the conscience of all believers: The Messiah has given Himself for us, To redeem us from every lawless deed, To purify for Himself a people for His own possession, That will be zealous for good deeds.
