A Cappella Worship Question 33

Click on Question 33 above to return to the question.

Throughout the Bible, the worship of statues, images, idols, etc. were forbidden. The Bible warns that we should not exchange the glory of God for anything that resembled man, animal, etc.

Romans 1:20-25* -- For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God, or give thanks; but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures. Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, that their bodies might be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. (NAS)

* Note: This scripture shows that we are not to exchange the glory of the incorruptible God for any image (either in the form of man, birds, animals or creatures). God the Father is invisible according to Romans 1:20, Colossians 1:15 and 1 Timothy 1:17. God the Father is spirit according to John 4:24. God the Father is also described as a consuming fire according to Deuteronomy 4:24 and Hebrews 12:29. And we are not to worship created images.
