This is one message out of a series of three, which series is titled: "Christmas Questions." So: if you have the "Christmas Questions" set you will have this message already.
In this Christmas sermon I focus on the Second Commandment and the question as to whether or not nativity plays, manger scenes, and pictures of Jesus are prohibited. He argues that they are not prohibited --- except in cases where they might be venerated, or used as aids to worship, or if such representations are demeaning.
The bulk of this argument comes from Scripture and theology, including statements by John Calvin. But I do deal with Larger Catechism question 109, showing that this carefully expressed statement does not prevent images of Christ.
Important matter for knowledgeable and concerned Reformed Christians --- and other evangelicals.
