Dear Brethren, or, some of you that do this…….Please stop posting images of what is supposed to be the Lord Jesus Christ, that look like Fabio. We shouldn’t have to be reminded. For those who call themselves Christians, to post these pictures is not funny, it’s not even silly, it’s sinful and wrong and shows how really ignorant and unmindful of His Word we are. Just SAY NO TO THESE FALSE FABIO “JESUS’S” IMAGES/IDOLS, or any other images that are “supposed to represent the Lord Jesus”, and stop sinning against and insulting our Creator and His Holy Commandments.
The Second Commandment goes to the heart of our relationship with our Creator. What is the proper way to worship the only true God?
“You shall not make unto you 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: 5 You shall not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; 6 And showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my Commandments.” Exodus 20:4-6
The Second Commandment goes to the heart of our relationship with our Creator. It deals with several crucial questions: How do we perceive God? How do we explain Him to ourselves and to others? Idols are representations of false, nonexistent gods but may we use pictures or other images that represent the true God? Above all, what is the proper way to worship the only true God?
During the period when Catholicism reigned supreme in northern Europe, “tithe barns” were developed in the 13th and 14th century. The purpose of the tithe barn was to extract goods, (tithes), from the local farmers, mostly peasants, who were already hard pressed to pay exorbitant taxes to the landed gentry, lords and/or the king or queen. Never mind the fact the Levitical priesthood had been abolished along with the Old Testament Law after the advent of the New Covenant of Grace established by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the High Priest forever after the Order of Melchizedek.
“A tithe barn was a type of barn used in much of northern Europe in the Middle Ages for storing rents and tithes — one tenth of a farm’s produce which was given to the Church. Tithe barns were usually associated with the village church or rectory and independent farmers took their tithes there. The village priests would not have to pay tithes—the purpose of the tithe being their support—and some had their own farms anyway, which are now village greens in some villages.
Many were monastic barns, originally used by the monastery itself or by a monastic grange. The word ‘grange’ is (indirectly) derived from Latin granarium (‘granery’). Identical barns were to be found on royal domains and country estates.”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tithe_barn
Examples of a modern day Tithe barns:
These are the largest tithe barns in America. Not all tithe barns are this large; some are very small, but the principle and purpose is still the same as the tithe barns of olden times……..That is, to practice the doctrines and deeds of the Nicolaitanes and make money at it. Never mind the fact that Lord Jesus hates the doctrines and deeds of the Nicolaitanes and never intended for the so called “clergy” to rule over the “laity” as you see done all over the United States in large or small tithe barns.
