Worshipping a Picture

 

Dear Brother Ron

 

My cousin invited me to his church, they are rehearsing for a fathers day play, and while I was there i noticed this huge picture above the altar and I right away recognized that it was Zeus! I asked my cousin about it and he said "Thatís a picture of God."

 

I asked him why they would have a picture of God since that goes against the Ten Commandments, and he said that it is only a sin if they worship it. So are the Evangelicals at this church Zeus worshipers?

 

Wolfcat

 

Dear Wolfcat

 

If they are not worshipping it, why is it above the altar? As I have said before, God is not a naked old man who works out (as He is depicted in the Sistine Chapel). The Bible tells us God created man in His image. Unfortunately, we keep trying to create God in our image.

 

It is going to be interesting when we finally meet beings from another planet. I wonder what their image of God is. Something tells me it wonít be anything like what we believe.

 

Best always

Brother Ron
