Deuteronomy 5:8 Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth: Exodus 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Deuteronomy 4:23-24 Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of the LORD your God, which he made with you, and make you a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, which the LORD thy God hath forbidden thee. For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God. Deuteronomy 27:15 Cursed be the man that maketh any graven or molten image, an abomination unto the LORD, the work of the hands of the craftsman. Behold, a full size recreation of the temple in Athens, including a 42 foot high idol of Athena, as well as sculptures and engravings of other gods. And, nobody cares. I think it's cool, but find it odd that given the pretty obvious scriptures on such things, combined with the typical baptist eagerness to use the old testament while bashing gays, that nobody gives a crap. At all. What's your thoughts on it? Why are idols ok, not just here, but in many churches that have pictures or even full size sculptures of Jesus? The common explanation is that it's ok as long as people don't worship it. Well, that's not what it says, plus many a Catholic have prayed to these scultures of Jesus and probaly of Mary or something.
