Beauty will Save the World: with Zach Dasher

Share This Post

At a Glance

Beauty can be associated with skin-deep attractiveness, but God’s beauty, the beauty of love, humility, and forgiveness, is far more powerful and can never be exhausted. Creation is saturated with God’s character and His beauty. This should affect our worship, but does it? Do we have a theology of beauty? Zach Dasher, media producer and nephew of Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson, joins us today to explain how important beauty is, why people are so hungry for it, and how we can respond to that hunger.

Politics is downstream from culture. And culture is downstream from worship.

Quotes

“In the absence of God, man becomes the determiner of all things, including the value of your life. But it’s not just any man that gets to determine that, it’s the one that’s got the biggest stick. And that happens to be our governments.” Zach (6:31)

“Politics is downstream from culture. And culture is downstream from worship. And the God that we worship as Christians is glorious. He is beautiful. And if we worship the one who is beautiful and the source of beauty, that should be reflected in culture. And today we have so much a theology of utility, a theology of pragmatism, but we don’t have a theology of beauty.” Darrow (11:17)

“We build cultures in the image of the God that we worship.” Scott, quoting Darrow (17:18)

“The reason why heaven is heaven is not because it’s eternal life. It’s that it’s eternal life with a God, whose beauty can never be exhausted.” Zach (38:29)

“You’re going to worship or love or desire whatever it is that you consume.” Zach (48:32)

“The biggest thing we can do is live out a kingdom life that’s beautiful and repentant.” Zach (1:01:26)
