4. In Living Color: Images of Christ and the Means of Grace, Daniel R. Hyde 

 “In post-modern, twenty-first-century Western society, biblically sanctioned and carefully crafted confessional statements of the Reformed faith are either blatantly challenged or simply discarded as irrelevant for the church. In Living Color effectively addresses one doctrine that increasingly is being discarded—the scriptural and confessional rejection of man-made images of Christ. “In these pages, Danny Hyde argues with great clarity against all images of Jesus as man-made media. He shows that all such images are abominated in Scripture and roundly rejected by the Reformed confessional heritage without exception. Hyde goes on to argue, however, that God does provide us with His ‘media’—the preaching of His Word and the administration of His sacraments. . . .” — From the foreword by Dr. Joel Beeke

7. Lesing van Richard Bennett, ‘n bekeerde rooms katolieke priester, oor die verband tussen ‘Catholic Mysticism and the Emergent Church’:

nota: sien by die 53 minuut merk hoe Bennett wys op die belangrikheid van om te publiseer op die internet.

“First we must define just what the term ‘mysticism’ means.  Mysticism is an attempt to gain ultimate knowledge of God by a direct experience that bypasses the mind.  As practiced by those who claim to be Christian, mysticism not only bypasses the mind, but it circumvents Christ Jesus as mediator.  For centuries, the Roman Catholic Church has assimilated into herself the mystery elements of pagan religions; however, in 1965, at the time of Vatican Council II, Papal Rome officially joined itself with pagan religions and their practice of seeking to know God by direct experience.  Some of the exact words of approval for these practices are still in the Vatican Council II documents.  For example, Papal Rome states,

“…In Hinduism men explore the divine mystery and express it both in the limitless riches of myth and the accurately defined insights of philosophy.  They seek release from the trials of the present life by ascetical practices, profound meditation and recourse to God in confidence and love.  Buddhism in its various forms testifies to the essential inadequacy of this changing world.  It proposes a way of life by which man can, with confidence and trust, attain a state of perfect liberation and reach supreme illumination either through their own efforts or by the aid of divine help…The Catholic Church rejects nothing of what is  true and holy in these religions.”

“Pictures of Christ corrupt the meanings of many Biblical words.  The definition of idolatry is changed  so  that   the   category  will   exclude  pictures  of   “Christ”,  pictures  of   the  Father,   and representations of   the Holy Spirit.    To  so  redefine  idolatry  is an attempt,  however   sincerely undertaken,   to  corrupt  what  man  is   to believe   concerning God  as  given  to us   through   the Scriptures.  The pictures  eventually  impact   and change  the meaning of   “salvation”  and  the “church”.    First,  we  accept   the   false  pictures   to  “know”  Christ   (Gnosticism  again).    These Gnostic pictures serve as mediators for knowing Christ.   Using the pictures serves as mediators for knowing Christ.  Using the pictures rituals are developed.  The representative pictures need a special priesthood to officiate in the development  and performance of a suitable liturgy.  The Roman Catholic Mass is a classical example of such go-between priesthood. In the Mass, the highest  point  of  Rome’s   liturgy   she   claims   “worship  which  is  due   to  the   true  God”   for   the Communion bread. All this, in Roman Catholicism is claimed to be done in His name. The end result is that Christ is replaced, as people look to the image.Thus   evangelical   world   a   similar reasoning  tries  to  justify  the  false pictures of  Christ.  These pictures corrupt  evangelism,   the Christian education, and true worship of the Church.  The Bible accepts no man-made picture as being a picture of Christ.  Neither should we.”
