This is an article I thought dovetailed well with earlier comments here; it is discouraging there is so little understanding in addition to little acceptance of this in the PCA. We need more TEs like this who will defend the biblical view presented in the Westminster Standards.

I concur. Did you notice that our most recent issue of our denominational magazine ByFaith had a second commandment violation in one of its adverts?

I feel like an outcast having come round to the confessional belief about images a while ago. The evangelicals I know don't really see the reasoning; they just talk about how powerful religious art can be and how it has historically inspired devotion. Well, isn't that the issue?

As one who assented to the confessional belief some time ago, the implications of it have recently hit home. I am now in the midst of what I hope to be fruitful conversations with leaders on how our church will teach on this. Thanks for the link. Your link led me to another link for Daniels Hyde's book In Living Color: Images of Christ and the Means of Grace, which I subsequently ordered.
