In this show, we discuss the 2nd Commandment. Exodus 20:4-6 states "You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I am the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who love me and keep my commandments." We believe as laymen that God is telling us in these verses that we shall not create an image to worship. It seems pretty simple to us.
Apparently, there is a portion of the "reformed" community who believe that any image of God, Jesus, or the Holy Spirit is a violation of this commandment. They even have a code for it, "2CV." The question is, if any image of the trinity is a sin, then is a children's Bible that has a picture of Jesus a sin? Or the movie "The Passion of Christ," was it a sin for Mel Gibson to produce this movie, or the actor to play Jesus?
