Deliberately Intended To Bring You To Worship

Dr. Alan Cairns:

“Should a Christian ever be invited to think of Christ apart from any context of worship?

When you have a representation of Jesus Christ, you have an object, not only the statement of a man’s opinion, but you have an object that is deliberately intended to bring your mind into the channels of worship. And, in this connection, God has said, no matter what the logic of man says, no matter what the value of the artwork may be, God says, ‘Thou shalt not make unto thee any image, male or female, in heaven, earth, or under the earth.’ Any image! No images, pictures, or icons, of any place in the public or private worship of the people of God.”
