Interesting post!No idols?No images?
The fact is, as long as one subscribes to any of the 3 Abrahamic faiths, one is already an IDOL worshipper.
What is Yahweh?AN IDOL/IMAGE!
What is Jesus?An IDOL/IMAGE!
What is the judeo-christian triune deity concept?An IDOL/IMAGE!
So, you see there is no escaping the idol sin because all are committing it.
Within both Judaism and "Authentic" Christianity, there are absolutely no circumstances where God finds idols or images acceptable. NONE, WHATSOEVER !
About "IDOLS": God declares that ALL idols are blind, dead, deaf, empty-of-life, forbidden, mute, religiously worthless, spiritually powerless, sinful. God calls the religious use of idols "Spiritual Adultery"! See: Lev.19:4 - Jer. Ch. 3
About "IMAGES": (Likenesses, Statues and Symbols) Forbidden, whether they are carved, cast, graven, molded or molten - See: Lev. 26:1 - Deu. 5:8 - Deu. 16:22 - Deu. 27:15 - Jer. 10:14
And Roman Catholic idolatry feeds and bolsters humanity's pagan, heathen, spiritual inclination which conforms itself to the natural world so easily. A natural spiritual inclination that the Apostle Paul declares each new, individual, Christian convert must "put-off" (quit, repent-of) in order for God's Holy Spirit to transform one into an authentic Christian "believer" by the spiritual renewal of one's formerly idolatrous, pagan, heathen mind. (See: Romans 12: 1-3)
The Roman Catholic religious system has never had this obligatory experience of spiritual repentance and renewal.
It has never become either holy or sanctified in God's eyes.
