    “ Smashing Christian Idolatry and Superstitions! ”
    Powerful, plain preaching and spiritual iconoclasm against the common and generational idolatry in American Christianity and churches. The visual imagery used to teach children about Jesus Christ especially is strongly rebuked and warned against. Particularly during Christmas are the merchandisers of religion busy selling and displaying their crafted artistic images which the 2nd commandment plainly condemns and teaches that God hates. "Another Jesus" and another gospel is being taught by the use of images and prevalent religious practices.

    “ Great Sermon! ”
    Painting a "Picture of Jesus" is not a tribute to the Savior. It's idolatry. Like Pastor Shelton said in the sermon it proceeds from the natural mind of fallen man and therefore is to be detested and seen for the abomination it really is.

    “ Good. ”
    6/10 rating. Give it a listen, though I'm not sure of the correctness of all parts of this message. He says it is wrong to paint pictures of Jesus, or even of things in the sea, but I see nothing wrong with making tributes to the Savior, personally, as long as it is not worshipped (do not worship any image!). I hope they will print this review, but if not, I will write yet a lighter one later if the Lord allows.

    We should all listen to this sermon,as it will remind us of what Idolatry really is. THATS WHY "YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN"

    Motto: "For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain" (Philippians 1:21) Pastor Shelton took the pastorate of First Baptist Church, Algiers in 1927 and began to devote all his time and energy to evangelizing southeast Louisiana. After the Lord saved him in 1942, he tirelessly...
