When you pray and worship, do you have an image that runs through your mind?  An image of God?  An image of Jesus? An image of the Holy Spirit?  If so, do these images come from a picture in a book,…Read More

Aniconism - Is it a Christian Practice because it avoids Idolatry ?

When you pray and worship, do you have an image that runs through your mind?  An image of God?  An image of Jesus? An image of the Holy Spirit?  If so, do these images come from a picture in a book, a movie, a painting, the Shroud of Turin... a podcast from "The Son of God" movie... wherever.... the point being, they are images.  So, if you mentally project these images during prayer or worship are they graven?  What mental images do you have, that are not graven, that you see when you pray?dbSee More
