    • Hallelujah, dear sister! We will see this.

      Job 19
      25 For I know that my Redeemer lives,
      And He shall stand at last on the earth;
      26 And after my skin is destroyed, this I know,
      That in my flesh I shall see God,
      27 Whom I shall see for myself,
      And my eyes shall behold, and not another.
      How my heart yearns within me!

    • Yes, the whole Creation groans now, little brother, awaiting this liberty from corruption.

      Romans 8
      19 For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now. 23 And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body.

      So delicate a tiny creature that was once a creeping catepillar! This image reminds me of your lesson for your children.

  1. Well, DO you destroy images used in religious worship? I’m a big fan of stained glass windows. I understand we don’t worship statues, the shroud of turin or even St. Christophers but there IS the glory of God which we express in St. Peter’s Bascillica.

    • No, I simply discourage others from using images of the Lord, including watching movies that depict His life. The Second Commandment forbids the use of images in worship. This is my prayerful understanding. In no way does St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City glorify the Lord. The glory of God is reflected in His Creation, and someday we will see Him face to face. Are you a Roman Catholic? I’m a former Roman Catholic.

      • No, I’m not exRoman Catholic but a recent (1997) born again and went to the Lutheran Church across the street where we lived.
        I believe God gives us talents with which to glorify His name whether it be singing, teaching, or even architecture. I understand St. Peter’s was built partly on the backs of people buying indulgences and many people believe this negates any good from it. Even though every ‘good’ thing we do for Him is nothing but dirty rags He doesn’t tell us to stop doing those things. Our money gets filtered through unclean hands but we still have churches, missions, Christian music and web sites used to get His word across. But that’s just me.
        Yay! for Christ!

        • Yay! Amen!

          We are in this world, but in not of it, right? Our feet need to be washed from walking in this world. But we don’t need to jump in the mud puddles deliberately. So to please the Lord I avoid images of Him, depictions. Having not seen Him, we love Him! The depictions feel like they’re getting between me and worshipping the Lord in Spirit and truth. What pleases our sense of the beautiful can make us stumble. Finally, though, I go back to the Second Commandment and the bottom line of obedience.
