Brethren In Christ,How do you interpret the Second Commandment?
Dear fellow brothers in Christ I am curious to know how do you interpret the second commandment :
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:

You can't put God into an image and worship the image. God is above his creation.

Thats why catholics have all these ikons. They don't give a damn about scripture.
"The world will soon wake up to the reality that everyone is broke and can collect nothing from the bankrupt, who are owed unlimited amounts by the insolvent, who are attempting to make late payments on a bank holiday in the wrong country, with an unacceptable currency, against defaulted collateral, of which nobody is sure who holds title."

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

He's talking about idols here. Back then they would carve a piece of wood, call it a god and worship it. Their temples were full of such idols of wood, stone and metal. All were idols, false gods.

But it says you shouldn't put God into an image and you added the clause that say unless you don't worship it.

The 10 commandments are simple basic instructions for mankind to live decently with eachother and God.

They still stand as a general guideline of how God wants us to live.

Jesus fulfilled the commandments. The spirit of the law... The perfect form of the teachings (torah).

If a man is 'In Christ', then he also will uphold the commandments.

But not himself, rather the Spirit of The Christ which dwells within him. The new creation.

If a man is a new creation, he is led by that new spirit, which is Christ. If he yields to that Spirit, he fulfills the will of God in this life.

Because it is the Spirit which performs the work and is pleasing to God.

Re: Brethren In Christ,How do you interpret the Second Commandment?
OP, you can make anything an idol. Sex, relationships, money, drugs, false gods, worldly desires. Anything that comes between the relationship of you and God can be construed as an idol.

That's why the illuminati put their symbols everywhere. They're pagan idol worshippers and satanists.

Re: Brethren In Christ,How do you interpret the Second Commandment?
Hello OP,

An Idol is anything which a man places before (in front of) his walk with God. Anything which leads a man away from yielding to The Spirit.

The apostle John speaks of "lusts"; The lusts of the eyes and lust of the flesh and pride of this life.

These also are forms of idol worship which lead a man away from following The Spirit.

Here I ear all kind of peoples fearing God, with different names for him. Different believing. Some of them think they know the true. Some others search for it. Some don t believe. Others are mistic. But we all believe that something is higher then us. So as a catholic, I consider any human as my brother. Black and white, yellow and red. Rich or poor. Cause who believe in Christ, is my brother.

Repentance from your sins listed in the Torah is the ONLY WAY His Sacrifice will be recognise by His Father in stead of your life.

Any sacrifice is an atonement BUT for the unintentional sins. Jesus paid the price but for this kind of your sins. Ponder about very very hard.

"Aaron, I- I- I told you not to make anymore of those d-d-dadgummed golden calves--and see God here agrees with me."
In his book, "Between Two Ages," Brzezinski wrote: "The technetronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values."

"In Christ" specifies Christians - the 10 Commandments were written for the Jewish Law.

However, it's means just what it says. No images of Christ or any other deities. It's not brain surgery.

Yes, a crucifix would be this and no, I don't have any. But I'm a Christian and not a Jew and I don't live by the law.

If you're not following the law, you don't love the Most High God, point blank period. The law was GIVEN to the Children of Israel, but mean to be a light to the Gentiles. The law is for EVERYONE to follow.
