Abstract

I believe there are three reasons for this prohibition against idols.

First, for ancient Israelites, it kept them from adopting and worshiping the idols from surrounding cultures. ......

Second, this commandment keeps Jews and Christians from containing God to a singular image. God’s vast greatness cannot be limited to any image, form, or description. .....

But there’s also a third, crucially important reason why God prohibited idols of any kind. Idols tend to be the projected wants and needs of those who make them. ......
