Have you ever heard of the 2nd Commandment? The Bible commands “US”, as followers of Jesus Christ to NOT make for ourselves the following:
- an image of any kind (think that includes a cross?)
- or an image of anything in the heavens
- or an image of anything in the earth
- or an image of anything in the sea
Not only are we NOT to make images of any kind, we must NOT bow down to them nor worship them!
Why? Because the the LORD our God, is a jealous God!
Remember Christians, nowhere in Scripture are we taught to erect the symbol of a cross as an aid to prayer or worship. We certainly shouldn’t bow down to such a graven image.
Do you know what will happen to US if we reject His commands and hate Him? He will punish the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation. Christian parents, don’t reject the Lord and His commands!
Do you know what will happen to US if we love, obey and keep His commandments? God will show unfailing love, mercy to a thousand generations. Christians parents, be sure to love God with all your hearts. To obey and keep His commands.
Our children and great grandchildren depend on us to love God and keep His commandments! See Deuteronomy 5:8-10 NIV
