Mystically graven images or molten images, etc, are just intermediaries that one puts in front of himself and God. Typically, those who do this than
have no problem representing this mental 'image' in physical form.
Its a sin because it takes away honor from the creator and instead vivifies and glorofies an isolated aspect of his creation. This is what christians
(with christ) buddhist and essentially all people do, minus the Jews and some muslims.
As long as you regard jesus as a 'incarnation' of G-d in a man, youre truly not understanding whats going on. First, thats a pagan concept that
pre-dates christianity. Appolo was Jesus, same with Dionysous, Hermes (see how amazingly similar hermetic literature is with christianity. Hermes is
described as a shepherd of men) Buddah, etc. And secondly, the jewish concept of moshiach never had nothing to do with this pagan concept. The pagans
try to merge god and man, the higher and lower natures into one body. Judaism considered moshiach as the 'collective' soul who would lead the jewish
people and mankind back to G-d.
The narrative of cain and abel reflects this. Cain offered to G-d flax. Flax grows on a single stock with pods growing opposite each other. this
symbolized what cain was willing to sacrafice. Nothing. He simply said let me serve you in this way. Im not gonna overcome my animal nature but
instead learn to live in haromony with it like the name Elohim. He in other words was taken in ym by the devious advice of the serpent. Whereas Abel
offered an ANIMAL, specifically a sheep. The sheep is a symbol for mans animal soul. The sheep is also a symbol for aries, the first sign of the
zodiac which integrates the following 11 signs. Sacraficing this to G-d was an acceptable sacrifice to g-d and so abel gained G-ds favor. This is what
G-d wanted. Effort and discipline on the part of man to be holy like their creator. The famous kabbalist the ARI, says that Abel was later
reincarnated into Moshe, who who is desinted to be reincarnated as moshiach ben David.
Anyways. Serve G-d alone. Everything in creation can be used to know him. Every experience is beggining to bwe included in your prayers and personal
conversation with the creator. Get to know him and yourself by seeing him in all your ways. A kabbalistic study of Torah is a great way to start.
