Egypt: The Pawn of Relativism

“God made man in his own image….” is a phrase that most folks familiar with the Old Testament will easily recognize.  For many years I accepted the phrase as a matter of fact yet as time continued its predictable march forward I discovered and acquired a entirely different interpretation; that is to say, a completely different understanding. For me it occurred somewhat serendipitously on the occasion when I would observe an artist painting or when reading the novel The Agony and The Ecstasy and being taken by Michael Angelo’s response when asked how he was able to create works of art from a simple block of marble. Confessing in advance that my recollection of his response is rather vague, I am prone to rest for the moment on the following version: I hold an image in my mind and remove the excess marble until its likeness is revealed.
