Excerpt from book:
IV. THE SECOND COMMANDMENT. " Thou ifialt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me; and shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love Me, and keep My commandments"—Ex. xx. 4-6, and Deut. v. 8-10. " This is the true God and eternal life. My little children, guard yourselves from idols."—I John v. 20, 21 (Rev. Vers.). THE SECOND COMMANDMENT. Under the general name of idolatry we are apt to confound two separate offences in religious worship. The one is the offence of addressing our worship to any false divinity; the other, the offence of addressing worship to any divinity whatever under the form of a material likeness. These two errors, which were often confounded by the Hebrews in popular speech, just as they are among ourselves, are, nevertheless, sharply discriminated by the law-giver. The First Commandment defines the sole object of religious observance: the Second, the right mode of religious adoration. The First condemns false gods, and, by consequence, plurality of gods ; since in any polytheism all save one must be false. The Second condemns worship by means of images, or the representation of God for purposes of devotion under any material emblem. It scarcely needs to be said that no one above the very lowest stage of barbarism ever worships the image itself, but only the Divine Being through such a representation of Him. When the material object is identified with the god, worship has sunk beneath idolatry. See later, page 62. ...
