[La] Pieta (pity in Italian) was created by Italian artist Michelangelo in during the High Renaissance (1498-1499, some say 1500). The marble sculpture was commissioned by ST. Peters of the French Cardinal Jean de Billheres for his tomb at the St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City. The piece depicts an intimate moment as Mary Magdalene holds her son, Jesus Christ, in her arms after his crucifixion. I remember reading that art critics pointed out that the size of a grown Jesus Christ was not in proportion to his mother’s body (his body looked significantly smaller than hers). I thought, “Who cares?”. It’s a breathtaking piece that truly shows the creativity of one individual. It brings to life a dramatic scene that has been depicted in photos and movies, but somehow this one is the favorite of many. With the obvious attention to detail and the level of skill that Pieta displays, I first fell in love with the sculpture because of the drapery of Mary’s dress. It seemed life-like and difficult to master with marble…and he was only 23 years of age.

I’ll do a review on it later.
I’ve heard of people disagreeing with parts of the bible for the sake of their own enjoyment of the sin, but what about the people who intentionally ignore reading the bible? I’m not talking about atheists or people who want absolutely nothing to do with Christianity. There are actually people who believe that if they do not read the bible, they will not be penalized by God for what they do not know.
Imagine that: Someone commits a sin, and then he or she is excused from it because they “didn’t know” that it is forbidden by God. Seriously.
I cannot fathom the logic of this point of view because this selected few acknowledge a God, but they refuse to read the bible because the little they know, the less they will be penalized for. That’s just crazy to me. It seems worse than those who wait until the 11th hour to repent.
