Re: Lucas
You make great points! Like you say, it’s hard to nail down just exactly what qualifies as a graven image. The many depictions of the Virgin Mary certainly seemed like borderline examples of graven images to me, as well. However, I can see why they are viewed as simply means to grow closer to God, rather than overshadowing God.
