190: Are Statues of Religious Figures Wrong?
Some Christians claim it is sinful to make any statue or image of Christ because it is a violation of the second commandment. Some might even say that this applies to movies that depict Christ.
Recently, a regular listener asked Kenny about this topic. In this episode, Kenny answers why he believes such statues are not necessarily a violation of the second commandment, but it depends on the motivation behind why the statues were created in the first place.
