Why should only 1 day a week be Holy?
God had some specific instructions for the Sabbath and you keep them everyday? You never cook or Clean? Or is it that you are ignorant to what it means to keep the sabbath holy?

You don't have any pictures, paintings or statues? Or do you not know that you are not to have them?

Cherry picking atheists.

Pictures, paintings or statues are fine to have - so long as they're not worshipped.

Oh please. Every Christian cherry-picks what parts of the Bible they accept or reject. And when it contradicts itself, which side of the contradiction they prefer.

Ans...So maybe you should sit back and reexamine your beliefs, and why you have them. You really don't have to though, you can stay in your own blissful ideologies, as well.

I can't speak of every Christian and neither can you.

He either ignorantly or deceitfully twisted scripture.

Atheists seem to do that a lot.

Do you think GOD told us not to eat on a day of the week, to look after our children, change their clothes, feed the animals etc etc? Do you think GOD wanted a baby to scream all day because it was hungry?

Man, you really don't know GOD!

Of course I do, and I wear a cross around my neck continually, with the face of JESUS etched into it. I have the Last Supper hanging on my wall, and a Nativity Scene set up all year around on the mantle piece above the fireplace. 4 of my lightshades are Cherubs....among many other Spiritually enhanced treasures.

Do I Idolise these things? Do I pray to these things? No, I Pray to GOD!

Placing a price tag on the artifact is inherently worshiping it.

Do you know what Graven Image means?

"An idol or fetish carved in wood or stone"

Do you know what an idol is (apart from our super stars of course LOL)

"a. An image used as an object of worship. b. A false god. 2. One that is adored, often blindly or excessively"

I guess you are stating you would rather pick up a stick than feed a baby? Not surprising, I suppose

Hey! You can red.

But can you comprehend what the words mean?

Can you NOT cherrypick? The very next verse is "Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God..."

It is placing an artificial value on the object, thus you are worshiping it.
