I am artsy, love my hobbies, like mixed media. But I’ve never liked certain designs, mostly what I would describe as eastern religious symbols. Somewhere back in the recesses of my mind, I wanted nothing to do with them. Well, here’s why.
Is it really about coloring?
“Or is it about spiritual hosts of wickedness sneaking mandalas into our homes and into our subconscious minds?” Opening the door to demonic entities.
I have some new coloring books – just fun stuff like owls and Scripture graphics. No mandalas.
(Hat tip to my friend Jamez)
Last week I received a kind gift from a friend. She is one of the godliest people I know. My friend is smart, independent, and she loves the Lord. She is not naive. She is a professional, a leader. She is not a crunchy new-ager. I have known her for 15 years. We are super close.
The gift is a cool and popular new item that many of my other Christian friends have used especially during times of illness. They are popular with cancer patients who just sit all day in hospital beds, bored of Judge Judy.
They are sophisticated versions of what children daily do.
They are nostalgic.
They are adult coloring books.
I see them in Barnes and Noble. I see them in Michael’s Craft Store.
I have seen them in the Christian owned craft store Hobby Lobby.
They are just coloring books.
I have no problem with coloring…
