Exo 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth
beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
DONT EVEN MAKE IT
You'd best not have any photographs in your house of any person,
of any holy places, of any earthly places, of ANYTHING. Not even a
cross hanging around your neck.
No paintings allowed either. No paintings of people, places, or things.
No fishies or cats or doggies either.
You'd best be AMISH! Otherwise you are screwed.
IF YOU HAD READ WHAT I POSTED you would see that God
Himself commanded people to do just the opposite.
Ex 25:18-20 Thou shalt make two cherubim of beaten gold, on the two
sides of the oracle. Let one cherub be on the one side, and the other
on the other. Let them cover both sides of the propitiatory, spreading
their wings, and covering the oracle, and let them look one towards the
other, their faces being turned towards the propitiatory wherewith the
ark is to be covered.
Num 21:9 The Lord said to him: Make a brazen serpent, and set it up
for a sign: whosoever being struck shall look on it, shall live. Moses
therefore made a brazen serpent, and set it up for a sign: which when
they that were bitten looked upon, they were healed.
3 Kings 6:23 - He m ade in the oracle two cherubims of olive tree, of
ten cubits in height.
3 Kings 6:28 He overlaid the cherubim with gold. And all the walls of
the temple round about he carved with divers figures and carvings: and
he made in them cherubim and palm trees, and divers representations
as it were standing out and coming forth from the wall.
3 Kings 6:33-35 He made in the entrance of the temple posts of olive
tree four square: and two doors of fir tree, one of each side; and each
door was double, and so opened with folding leaves. And he carved
Cherubim, and palm trees and carved work standing very much out:
and he overlaid all with gold plates in square by rule
