Charles Hodge:

“Idolatry consists not only in the worship of false gods, but also in the worship of the true God by images.”


Exodus 20:4 

Exodus 32:3-4


Tom Skinner:

“The reason that I didn’t become a Christian growing up was when I saw pictures of Jesus I thought, that guy would not last one hour in my neighborhood.”

J. I. Packer:

“The second commandment means that any statement that begins, ‘I like to think of God as’ should never be trusted.”

Debby Boone:

“It can’t be wrong when it feels so right.”

Martin Luther:

“People want to say; ‘I like to think of God this way, I believe that what I am doing will glorify God’.

But God will not have you tell Him how He would be served.

He tells you in His word how he must be served.”


Leviticus 10:1-3

Redeemer’s vision statement:

“Redeemer aspires to be a reformed Christ-centered body of believers who are developing a passion for Christ by equipping disciples and reaching the lost through God-centered worship, a devotion to prayer, and grace-centered preaching.”

Robert Schuller:

“The reformation erred in that it was God centered not man centered, therefore the reformation made a mistake. Worship needs to be man centered because man has such a poor self-image so worship must be man-centered and not God-centered.”

J. I. Packer:

“God’s holiness is the central, most important element in worship. It is coming face-to-face with God, standing in his presence, bringing forth our praise to him for who he is…. If the greatest commandment is to love God with our whole being, then to come to him in worship is a duty central to living out that love…. But worship is primarily an expression of the worth of God. It is a God-centered thing. It is primarily for God and about God.”


Colossians 1:15

Hebrews 1:1-3a

Isaiah 55:8-9

Romans 11:33-34
