    More Sermon Details:   
    As an extension of our 'Reformation Distinctives' series, we began a series on the Second Commandment, more specifically discussing images, icons, and other religious symbols. In this sermon, we introduced the subject by discussing the significance of the first table of the Law, and how it relates to idolatry, then talked about the making of images in relation to Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy 4.

    “ Powerful Insightful Sermon! ”
    This message delves deeply into areas that many people are creating problems for themselves by trying to make some sort of image of God -- I see this as one that not only views physical objects that people accept into their spiritual life, but also I believe one must go deeper and look at their conscious and unconscious mind and see what you are creating within your mind. That too can be anti-God. This message has deep implications on worshipping God properly. An excellent, deep message. Thank you Brother Todd Ruddell.

    BWS (10/20/2013)
    “ Images, Icons Show Hatred to God, Not Love ”
    Historically, Baptists used to hold to the same principles regarding worship as the Westminster Confession and Catechism too. It used to be that Baptists would never put crosses or spires on their Church Meeting places either for this same reason, and certainly never Christmas trees, nor pictures of "Jesus", nor holiday idols called manger scenes. "... But the acceptable way of worshipping the true God, is instituted by himself, and so limited by his own revealed will, that he may not be worshipped according to the imagination and devices of men, nor the suggestions of Satan, under any visible representations, **or any other way not prescribed in the Holy Scriptures**." - 1689 London Baptist Confession, also adopted by Charleston Baptist Assoc. of South Carolina in the 1700s.

    BWS (10/20/2013)
    “ Important Sermon! ”
    Very relevant as to what God desires rather than the vain desires of churches today. And even more relevant during this season of great superstition as we approach closer to what is blasphemously called Christmas, largely by professing Christians. Dare we talk about the use of decorated trees, and quite a few in churches? Pray tell, what example of do we have in scripture of this, other than from the heathen nations and Babylon's idolatry? The Second Commandment cannot be of "secondary importance", without considering the grave threat, from God himself, in the commandment. Should we provoke God while claiming to worship the Son?
