Idol vs. Graven Image: VLOG

This past week I was pondering the difference between an idol and a graven image. They are far too often treated as one and the same. I felt strongly that they were different. But, above and beyond understanding the difference, I wanted a modern application. I wanted to know how we might make a graven image in our lives–unwittingly. As I continued to study Exodus (and not for the first time, mind you), ideas came to mind. But, it wasn’t until I sat down and had a discussion with my eldest son (as he was pondering a very similar question), that we both began to understand the fundamental differences better. This is obvious only one possible interpretation. But, I found it exceedingly reasonable, and relevant.

I often like to write several pages showing my thought process. But, today, I hope that sharing the brief vlog I posted on my YouTube channel the other day will be a nice change for you all. Enjoy!

One thought on “Idol vs. Graven Image: VLOG

  1. This might be my all time favorite vlog/blog on this site. I had never thought of looking at idolatry and graven images separately. But as soon as I heard you say, why mention both, I knew what you were going to say, so to speak. It was always there, but I didn’t have eyes to see. Thank you for unveiling this for me. Yes! What you said is soooo true.
