The second commandment forbidding the representation of God in any similitudes, may teach us, that we must not conceive of God after any earthly or carnal manner. Indeed the Popish church approving of the images of the Trinity (as before was shewed) do thereby teach the people to conceive of God, as of an old man sitting in heaven, with a crown upon his head, because he is called the Ancient of days; but all such carnal conceits of God are here forbidden.
