I confess to a certain insulation but I was rather take aback when I read this recently at Old Life blog. Old Life Theological Society | Next Time You’re Tempted to Blame Escondido It’s reported by a convert to the RCC but it is accepted as a credible report in the discussion there. At Redeemer NY they had a church order of worship handed out: “A gory painting of Jesus, dead on the cross, covered the entire front cover of the bulletin.” It is not clear if this was a one off (think “Easter service”), or if every Lord’s day worshipers are greeted by such a thing. I guess I’m not too surprised even if this is an every week thing; but I find such a blatant disregard of the PCA’s standards rather breathtaking. Even if one personally has an exception, why such disregard for everyone’s views that walk in the door? In any event, if you were traveling and dropped in at the local PCA for a weekend and were handed such a thing, what would you do? I am pretty sure I would walk out. P.S. --- Yes; a lot of the argumentation in that blog thread displays ignorance of the argument against images of Christ. See some material in this post: http://www.puritanboard.com/f26/att...ndment-violations-links-etc-28341/#post344216 ---It is indeed the view of the Westminster Standards that images of Christ are prohibited whatever the context (worship or not in worship). See The Intent of Westminster Larger Catechism 109 Regarding Pictures of Christ ---There’s plenty of threads here on the subject of images of Christ, and while they are worthy of rebuke, please no posts about Frame and Keller. This thread is not to rehash those arguments (and be mindful of board rules contra advocacy of unconfessional views). I’m curious here on just what would one do if confronted by such a thing walking into a supposed Reformed worship service.
