Folks, there’s most recently been a controversy in which extreme leftists have wanted to TEAR DOWN all CONFEDERATE statues based on RACE, ALONE! 

And while many Christians out there in the South are PROTESTING taking down the statues, there’s a MUCH BIGGER picture here at play folks and that’s THIS:

ALL “STATUES” ARE **IDOLS!** Yes, you heard me. **IDOLS**. How we know this? Let us go no further than the 2nd commandment in the bible, which states the following:

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me” – [Exodus 20: 4-5]

Okay, so let us define what a “graven image” is, biblically-speaking. It is simply an “image made by the hands of man”. And that “image” (in order to be classified as an “idol”, biblically speaking) must represent a thing or a person that is under the Earth, on the Earth or above the Earth.

Therefore, ALL STATUES comply with all the categories of an IDOL (biblically-speaking):

  1. It’s an “image” or “representation” made with mans’ hands
  2. It’s an “image” or “representation” of a person/thing that’s under/on/above the Earth
  3. Mankind often “marvels” over such “statues” and “takes picture of it” or with themselves BY it, which qualifies as a form of “worship”, according to the bible. Because remember: to “marvel” over something is to “worship it”, biblically-speaking

Therefore, I think ALL STATUES should come down. Not so much because of the race or history thing, but because of the IDOL THING! Think about how many Catholics, for instance, BOW DOWN to “statues” of “saints” (DEMONS) or The “Pope” or what have ya. Many people say that statues of Catholic saints are IDOLS, yet statues of historical figures are NOT.

But HOW is that, folks? How is a man-made STATUE of an historical figure ANY DIFFERENT than all the statues of Catholic saints? Don’t people (in a sense) bow down to and WORSHIP statues of historical figures by TAKING PICTURES OF IT or taking pictures of themselves RIGHT BY IT? Think about it, folks! 

I’m honestly surprised that more Christians out there haven’t picked up on this and started more of a “fuss” about this. When the VERY FIRST “statues” (i.e. IDOLS) were put up of historical figures, how IS it that most Christians out there weren’t PROTESTING THEM, THEN? Answer: Because they were SPIRITUALLY BLIND

Satan had it SO EASY on this, folks! One little statue HERE, one little statue THERE and many Christians were NONE THE WISER! How sad, folks! How PITIFUL! What a SPIRITUAL SHAME that more Christians have not been able to open up their eyes and SEE THIS SIMPLE FACT!

Many Christians today even want to CLING to those statues as “vestiges of human history”. And while it’s true that human history should never be forgotten (lest it be repeated, once again), I just don’t think that clinging to STATUE IDOLS is the way to go about it, SPIRITUALLY SPEAKING! 

Most of us wouldn’t want or have idols in our HOMES! So why should we want any STATUE IDOLS in the PUBLIC SQUARE? Think about it, folks! A 10 commandments monument is ONE thing! A STATUE (i.e. GRAVEN IMAGE IDOL) of an historical figure is another thing, altogether! 

And folks, it’s NOT JUST statues of historical figures that are IDOLS/GRAVEN IMAGES (the statue of liberty’s DEFINITELY AN IDOL – like it or not), but it can also be things like statues of cats, dogs, fish, ANYTHING. It doesn’t necessarily have to BE a statue of a “Buddha” or the like to BE an “idol”, BIBLICALLY-SPEAKING. Do you read me on this, folks?????

Anyways, it just breaks my heart and makes me so, so sad that many Christians are BLIND as to exactly WHAT an idol is (it’s a heck of alot more than just a Buddha or a wax museum figurine of somebody famous). When are people gonna open up their eyes and see this fact? 

I pray that if you’re a Christian/Messianic Jew who doesn’t yet see the BIBLICAL TRUTH about statues, that you soon WILL. I also pray that ALL statues will start to come down, soon. Again, not for the LIBERAL REASONS stated but for BIBLICAL REASONS! Cause then, and only then might almighty God have just a little more “patience” with this nation if we start tearing down statues (IDOLS/GRAVEN IMAGES) for all the RIGHT reasons (BIBLICAL REASONS) instead of all the WRONG reasons!

Folks, we (America) are a nation of IDOL WORSHIPERS (statues at every which corner/public square), MURDERERS (abortion, etc.), WHOREMONGERS (homosexuality/transgenderism/pre or extra marital sex), BLASPHEMERS and THIEVES. But even if we (as a nation) were to get rid of just ONE of those things (for all the RIGHT biblical reasons), the Lord would be partially pleased. Did you know that, people? Do you CARE? 

But yet, the bible says that won’t happen anytime soon. America will have to FALL TO ITS KNEES before many of its own citizens will repent. And EVEN THEN, many will have a TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART towards Jesus and his commands in the bible!

Remember how all the ancient Greeks and Romans had STATUES at every corner and all over their “public squares?” Today’s times aren’t so different now, are they? True, people might not PHYSICALLY bow down and “worship” the statues of historical figures in the essence of: Oh President Lincoln, I worship thee GREATLY, but that’s because people do so IN THEIR HEARTS!

Like I said, they take PICTURES of the “statues” (graven images) or take pictures of THEMSELVES by the “statues”…..But again, exactly WHERE does that motivation truly come from? WHAT or WHOM gives them the very “thought” IN THE FIRST PLACE that they should take a picture OF it or with themselves BY it? Who or what, INDEED?

Can you IMAGINE Jesus back in the day telling any of his disciples (had the technology existed back then) to “snap” a pic of Roman statues or with themselves in front of one/by one? OFCOURSE NOT! Therefore, if a disciple HAD done that (had the technology existed back then), Jesus would’ve IMMEDIATELY denounced it as IDOLISM (which, it clearly IS!) 

And you don’t think Jesus Christ considers that a form of “worship”, folks? Trust me, he considers it WORSHIP…….And that applies EVEN TO STATUES OF HIMSELF…….He doesn’t even want us “worshiping” or “marveling” over statues of HIM…….Therefore, do you REALLY think he’d want any of us “worshiping” or “marveling” over a statue of historical figures or the like? THINK ABOUT IT, FOLKS!

[NOTE:  hope this post has both enlightened and informed you about THE TRUTH about all “STATUES”. May you NO LONGER be deceived by Satan and his demons! Amen.]
