Re: Brethren In Christ,How do you interpret the Second Commandment?
GOD is a spirit. There is nothing on earth that resembles Him. No image would look like him. he does not want you to make images and worship them.

Kind of like the guy cutting down a tree. He uses part of it to cook his food, part of it to keep warm, other parts for other functions. Then uses the left-overs to carve an image and then bows down to it says.. "save me". You are my god.

Kind of foolish if you ask me.

And there's always more to this.

Just parsing the original post:

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:

Make unto thee: private idaho
any graven image: iconic art as a construct
Heaven above: literal / immaterial
earth below: fiery depths / hellish regions
water under the earth: aquifers / hades / superfluids

Basically, don't take some BS dreamt up about neverever- or etherland and submit your brothers to the agony of dealing with these moronic constructs for the rest of eternity.

Any organic representation of a thought to be ethereal construct is an assault on the senses.

Energy flow is restricted when spun and cycled about cerebral constructs that redirect intent inwards.

Intent, spun once and liberated, as a 6 or a 9... Whip it Good -)

The Sabbath is on Saturday the 7th day too, yet we go to church on Sunday. Easter and Christmas are pagan holidays, it just gets worse and worse. I think people are beginning to find out how manipulated the church and society has become by the works of Satan.

I sure hope so. And I think the biggest lie has been that we need sacred buildings, sacred furniture, clergy, altars, and business meetings. Jesus only said "where two or three gather in my name", and "in spirit and truth" rather than sacred places. Our true worship is not done through rituals or rites, but through "the renewing of your mind" and "the fruit of the Spirit". We are "salt", and one does not put salt into a bowl and bring the food to it; rather, we are to go out into the world and "savor" it by living daily in such a way that people want to have what we have. That is our worship, and it needs no special place or time.

Uh... how was I arguing? I was actually agreeing with the premise that people are finding out how manipulated the church has been. scratching
