Exodus 20:4 "You shall not make for yourself an idol (or graven image), or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth below or in the water under the earth." Now for my question. It says no graven image or any likeness of what is in heaven or on the earth. No image or likeness of anything is what it says. So my question is, does that mean we cannot make an image of anything like it states? Including crosses, trees, flowers etc? That is what it says in the verse. Any likeness of anything it clearly states.
