Once again our friend and colleague SlimJim tackles a claim of Biblical contradiction made by the Skeptic Annotated Bible.
Are we allowed to create images of living things, or explicitly forbidden by God’s word?
I have a hard time imagining the mental landscape or the spiritual poverty of persons who devote themselves to “disproving the Bible.”
The images of cherubims on the Ark and on the curtains of the tabernacle–of course they were okay. What is not okay in the Bible is to create some kind of image and then worship it as an idol. Making images is permitted. Worshipping images is not.
Today people still worship the work of their hands–Science and technology, political parties, their own image in the mirror, etc., etc. We’re much too sophisticated to carve a face into a piece of firewood and then bow down to it.
But heathen foolishness is still very much with us.
