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?
,,,,,Think about it…..
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: thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am o jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of then that hate me; and shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.’ Exodus 20: 4-6.
“Let us now consider images and pictures of Jesus Christ. We do not have one instance of Christ being portrayed physically anywhere in the Gospels, or through the testaments. There are instances of Him as “despised,” in Isaiah, as one not to behold, and His age is hinted at in John 8 – He was not yet 50 years old. Otherwise, the Holy Spirit did not give us one instance of Christ’s appearance anywhere in the Bible. With so different pretended portraits of the Lord we cannot begin to wonder at the variations of the pictures of Christ, which the Iconoclasts used as an argument against images. In truth, every nation formed a likeness of its own, according to its existing ideals of art and virtue. Not only this, but I find it interesting that when Christ is portrayed in pictures or in movies, that he is given long hair – like a woman (1 Corinthians 11:15). Not only is this inaccurate from a Semitic standpoint, but it also ascribes to Christ something that is the glory of a woman, not a man. It ascribes to Him actions of having long hair which is sinful according to 1 Corinthians 11:14, “Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?” Is this the Jesus Christian was to “see?”
