  2. “This branch of philosophy [axiology] deals with the study, among others of aesthetics and ethics. The holiness of this Trinitarian God is the basis on which all ethics are grounded. Trinitarian theology becomes the proper starting point of all theorizing about ethics. At another level, the study of beauty invlolves unity in diversity such as a painting or a symphony. If both the diversity of the elements and the unity of the final product do not have real significance, these could reduce to meaningless pursuits. That significance is provided only because in our Creator God, diversity (the distinction between the Persons of the Godhead) and unity (the Oneness of the Godhead) are both meaningful and significant. The pursuit of pleasure in variety that is a hallmark of today’s society is the most observable symptom that we are a bored generation! Christians are not exempt, either, because we have learned to look at the creative arts at the purely pragmatic and utilitarian levels. I do not mean that one must hold an eternal perspective in order to meaningfully engage in the arts. All I intend to communicate at this point is that beauty and harmony are best explained only when ultimate reality, God, is the ground of both unity and diversity. “ L. T.
