GRAVEN IMAGES FORBIDDEN
|- Stated in the Law of Moses: EXO 20: 4
"Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything 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 a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generations of them that hate Me; --and showing mercy unto thousands of them that love Me, and keep My commandments."
2nd COMMANDMENT Summarily ~ Restated by Jesus Christ. See MATT 22: 36 - 38
