God of Beauty

From a longer post on the connection between God and beauty:

“In the presence of sometimes staggering pain and ugliness, one must either explain it or explain it away. Worldviews have dismissed it as illusory (some Eastern religions), refused to even define it (Atheism), or sought to understand the reason and the solution (Christianity).  The presence of grandeur and goodness provides no less of a challenge. One must either explain things like beauty, awe and wonder… A good worldview needs to explain the world, not explain the world away.”
