Mr. Phillips makes a powerful point: Culture is religion externalized. No art is neutral. All films have profound religious implications, even films written, directed, and produced by a devout atheist. This is why a solid, biblical worldview is a prerequisite for all Christian endeavors in the world of the arts.
He also raises a controversial question: Is beauty objective? Mr. Phillips, correctly, I believe, says that it is. Why? Because the Bible speaks of beauty as objective. It speaks of some things that are objectively beautiful and lovely, and others that are objectively ugly and abhorrent. This is in direct contradiction to our society's relativistic understanding of beauty (i.e. "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."), which sadly, has become deeply engrained in the minds of Christians as well.
