About Us

Biblically inspired is a group created for those who wish to share art they have created that has been inspired by the Bible and its teachings.

Rules:

1.) Only art that contains the Christian message and or is in line with a Biblical Christian Worldview will be accepted.

2.) It must be your art, or literature.

3.) It needs to be appropriate. I'm opening the group to whatever submissions you would like, but if you feel that your art doesn't bring God glory, don't submit it. (Please see the FAQ section below if you have questions in regards to this.)

4.) You must be a member of the group to contribute/submit art. Please send a request and I'll get back to you asap. If I can see evidence that you are a Christian in either your art or profile, you will be accepted.

6) I'm doing my best as far as what I'm changing in the admin area. Bare with me as I try to figure out what works and doesn't. If you are having trouble submitting art or have suggestions, please message me, WishesAreChildren. I'm not as active as I'd like to be, so hopefully what I've done will make the submission process quicker and easier.

7)I've created folders to help organize the submissions. If you have ideas for new folder names, let me know. Organize your submissions as you are able.

8) Feel free to tell your friends about the group. I've made some changes in hopes that this will become a bigger community that is able to appreciate and discuss one another's talents and interests. In other words, this group is now about fellowship. Thanks for being a member!


This info and rules are subject to change.

FAQS:

Q: What shouldn't I submit?

A: Anything that encourages others to sin or contains themes that may trip up your brothers and sisters who are struggling in certain areas. To give some brief examples of what I won't tolerate, here is a short list: pornography, promiscuity, or sexual context, the promotion of bullying, rape, murder, discrimination, hatred or worship of idols. I understanding that some stories may contain these, but I believe that there is a difference between showing that choices have consequences or are wrong, and excusing them.

Q: Can I submit a story that contains magic and or supernatural elements?

A: While I read books by authors like J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and Ted Dekker, who either claim to be Christian and or write from a Christian perspective, I also realize that the Bible tells us not to practice witchcraft. That being said, I think that if your story or art depicts a fantasy world or states that God has given someone a supernatural ability to see things other don't in order to illustrate a Biblical concept, you can submit your art. People can tell the difference between a story that is themed fantasy or science fiction, and one that is not. Readers are asked to use their own judgement in regards to what art they enjoy, and to respect that not everyone feels the same way on this sometimes controversial topic.

It is the commitment of Biblically-Inspired to faithfully uphold the revealed truths of Holy Scripture. Every member of our group should therefore Agree with the following:

1.) The Holy Scriptures, Both Old and New Testaments, are fully and verbally inspired by God. Because of this, they are utterly infallible and completely You will not read into the Bible what is not there.

2.) There is only one God. He is Omniscience, Omnipresent, Omnipotent. Within the Being of this one true God exist three eternally distinct and coequal Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three Persons are the one true God.

3.) Jesus Christ is the Holy Son of God, and the Second Person of the Trinity. He became flesh, and was born a tiny babe through the Holy Spirit in the womb of the Virgin Mary. He who is true God became true man, uniting two natures in one person forever. Christ lived a perfect, sinless life, died on the cross as an atoning sacrifice for our sins, rose bodily from the dead, and ascended into Heaven where He now serves as our High Priest, our only Mediator. He will return bodily and visibly to the earth as King of kings and will judge every human being who has ever lived.

4.) The Holy Spirit is the eternal Third Person of the Triune God, the Regenerator and Sanctifier of the redeemed, He is the one who opens our hearts and minds to hear and understand the Holy word of God, and he gis the one who moves our lives towards more godly living.

5.) All humans are Imago dei, meaning, created in the image of God. We are all descended from the first human beings Adam and Eve. Through the fall of Man, that image of God in humanity has been contaminated, although not eradicated. Every human being is sinful and corrupt . Because of this, we are separated fromGod. Human beings are condemned because of our fall into sin, through connection to Adam, and through individual choice. The desperate need of humanity is forgiveness of sins and consequent restoration of fellowship with God; yet humans remain totally unable to atone for and restore themselves.

6.) Jesus' death on the cross, was the ultimate sacrifice that atoned for the unredeemable sins of humanity. Through him, and through salvation we are rescued from God's wrath by His unmerited grace alone. i is through faith in Christ, and NOT by our own works, do we receive

7.) In the end, those who received the free gift of salvation will live forever with God his holy kingdom, and there will be a new heaven and earth.
And into the lake of fire will be thrown sin, death, and the grave. But this will also be the fate for those who did not accept Christ as well as Satan and his entire host of fallen angels.





NOTE:  If you wish to join or if you are a member who wishes to participate, we require we practice what we preach.  If we agree to these tenets, we must live them as well.  Do not feel rejected, when you decide to submit anything contrary to Scriptures or that promotes sin, regardless of what society says about it.  The Word of God is not up for social change.  Membership requirements may be changed without notice.

Hello, all. :) I just joined Deviant Art about a week ago.  I'm looking for friends and some writers to feature in my Christian Fantasy/Science Fiction group. I know it isn't for everyone, but for those interested, I hope to create a positive place. Once I'm accepted, I may post The Chronicles of Aleria, my YA Christian Fantasy piece. It may or may not be easy to see, but I'm basing the Alerian race on the Jewish people and their history, and 'The Book' on the Bible. The main character, Adril, is a follower of the Deity, which is representative of God. I'm hoping that Christians and non will enjoy it and see positive messages throughout. So far, I would rate it T for teen for some violence, but I tried to be tasteful.
