A question was asked about the second commandment and the making of pictures of Jesus. To which I responded,
The Lord reveals himself through his word and sacrament. Those are his appointed means. We should be wary of going beyond them to "help" kids. We may even belittle the simplicity of his means when we demand pictures.
You will often find too, that wherever pictures have increased in the history of the church, piety has decreased.
