kuyper claim every square inch of creation even scifi/fantasy








In the total expanse of human life there is not a single square inch of which the Christ, who alone is sovereign, does not declare, 'That is mine!'. Abraham Kuyper




i was wondering if we christains are called to claim every square inch of creation for Christ-why can't we do the same thing with scifi/fantasy???




C.S. Lewis,J.R.R. Tolkein and Gordon Macdonald has done it-these christain writers has done it in the past-why can"t christian writers do it not only today but tommorows as well?




And i do not mean to holy sanitize the genre and then put the christain label on it as a afterthought at best and at worse purposely put it on it and market it $$$$-But apply scriptures directly and the inexhaustable riches of biblical princples derived directly from the fountain of living waters to the genre....




again i say why can't a scifi/fantasy writer(or anyone else) happens to be a christain who writes scifi/fantasy???




Genisis 1:




27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; (R) male and female he created them.
28And God blessed them. And God said to them,(S) "Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth."




Philippians 4:8For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them].
