The images of life are not what we are talking about sir,but the images that are made to represent the Deity,of which was commanded by the Living God not to do by the poeple of faith.We are to worship God in Spirit and in Truth.There is no need to have an image of Him.<quoted text>
You believe a cookie can symbolize Christ, but a statue or painting gives you heartburn?
Glad I don't drive on the same streets you do. You probably think stop signs are evil and should be shunned.
It is interesting how the Jews tried to discredit Jesus by using a Roman coin,so the Romans present would be sucked into their attempt to trap Jesus as an insurrectionist.Jesus looked at the coin and said whose inscription is on this coin.Of course they answered Caesars's. "Well render unto Caesar's what is His and unto God what is His.The Jews had a currency of sorts,and God's Image was never on it.Nothing in Jewish culture required some sort of image to prove God.Was not Caesar considered a god,by the Romans?
We are not to represent our God by using images or statues,He is Spirit and we worship Him in that manner,and His Son sits at His right hand until all the enemies of Christ are placed at His Feet.
It all continues to boil down to simple obedience.I wonder that the RCC failed to obey the first commandment of God our Father,how they are so filled with all truth in every matter of faith?
