There is a bit of an issue in my heart that keeps coming up time and time again in my family.
– My family is Catholic and has statues everywhere. Saints, mother Mary, Joseph etc… I do know they are wrong and are idols.
-Question: Would I be wrong in thinking carvings and statues of Jesus is wrong as well? As we know God said in the old covenant to moses that: “‘You shall not make for yourself a carved image–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.’ Emphasis on heaven.
– I know they are wrong and want to be rid of them. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my family, no doubt about it! However, I don’t like to be around all of their idolatry.
– SO! What would you all do? I love God and want to follow his 2 new covenant commandments, how do I follow them in this situation?
(Writing this has also made me realize I should just be praying and asking God for this answer) Duh…
