I have seen Christ standing on the right hand of The Lord God Almighty, in my vision, which was followed by a dream 'in riddles' [Numbers 12:6]. Not ONE man-made picture/image of Christ, is correct. So who is this 'man' who you worship, and draw/paint pictures of, and create images of? I know them not!

He has a puckish sense of humour and assumes a different appearance for everybody.

Images, statues, photos, music, altars, architecture, magnificent church buildings,art, poetry, pre-written prayers, crosses, tinted glass windows, etc, etc simply enhance the Christian experience. It is a rather simple concept.

There are those that think ALL of the above is pagan and only worship in vacuum. This is almost identical to the way the Muslims and Jews do it.

Has ANYONE asked God what HE thinks of this 'rather simple concept'?

I hope you haven't posted a LIE. You may not be afraid of 'putting words into the mouth of God'. I surely am!

He told me it was fine.

After all, those guys who wrote the parchments decades after Jesus' death that were later collated by dozens of editor-types and eventually called the bible - well, they quoted him a LOT!

So, it's ok for me too.

Like that picture you posted of your dog Benny. I think that is probably a picture of Immanuel for you... "God with us". .

So are the pictures of my husband and children for me. As a matter of fact, anytime I witness any creature (plant, animal, human, whatever) bringing love or the opportunity to love to a human being, I think that is God appearing to us.

Aisi.

You had a vision of Christ? Excellent. How long was his hair? After reading a lot of posts about long hair on men being a sin...and since we all know Jesus was without sin...can you tell us if Jesus is rockin a shaved head?
