A friend of ours believes any image of Christ is an "idol," including nativity scenes with the baby Jesus. He says most evangelical Christians worship the nativity scene, and to prove it, he used this illustration: If he were to break, deface, or crush the baby in the manger, people would say it was a sign of disrespect to Christ. He believes we have borrowed an idol from the Roman Catholic church and that's one reason why he will not celebrate Christmas. I never heard this argument before, so I'll ask y'all, in your opinion, is removing, breaking, or damaging the "baby Jesus" part of a manger scene showing disrespect to Christ? Do you think nativity scenes are idols?
