"I am telling you that God hates images carved and made to repesent HimHis Son and His handmaiden,because the false religions of the earth did that,and He does not want His people to mimic or have anything similar to the religions HE did NOT A u t h o r!"<quoted text>AGAIN you fail to see the obvious!The Madonna for one is also depicted in Goddess worship of Isis,Asteroth and so on. The myriad of goddesses that were worshiped for centuries all had madonnas.One of the main goddesses of Rome was a goddess who was a virgin and had a child,Adora. Women would flock to homes where her statue was present to plead to her for fertility blessings,so that they could have children without complications.
The very fact that the pagan religions and so on all used these images and that those images were worshiped angered God.His people would not do that,He decreed,they would not have anything to do with it.But when the Israelis or Jews fell and went after other gods,they put images into their homes. Jewish women wore medals of the goddesses of fertility without complications.
God knew what they were doing,so He punished them continuously.So this same God who punished His people severely for having such inspired His people to reject that which came out of their neighboring nations.SEE IT Clay? The idols had no ears to hear,no eyes to see,could they be a threat to God? Are statues today a threat to Him? NO,but when we break God's commandments that is a threat to HIM. Get to the nitty-gritty on this Clay.
I am telling you that God hates images carved and made to repesent HimHis Son and His handmaiden,because the false religions of the earth did that,and He does not want His people to mimic or have anything similar to the religions HE did NOT A u t h o r!
The Jews are His Elect,whether they today are not living for Him is immaterial to that,They are His Elect,and He will fulfill all HE has ordained in and through them,riht to the end of the age.Jesus is their Messiah!And He is ours to the glory of the Father.
