    This discussion is both sophisticated and convoluted. But scripture
    expressly says “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image either of things above or of things below…” It says, further,
    “God is a spirit, and those that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.” Kissing and handling icons seems to me
    blasphemous; they may purport to represent spiritual entities that no human has ever seen, but this is simply the idolatrous human imagination at work.

    Dear Vivienne, please compare your comments above) to the Gospel: “Any spirit that does not confess that the Christ has come in the flesh is antichrist.”
