Anathema to those who dare to say that the Catholic Church has at any time sanctioned idols.

Can't be repeated enough.

Good Post,dear friend.

You might like what Saint John Of Damascus wrote

“In former times, God without body or form could in no way be represented. But today since God has appeared in the flesh and lived among men, I can represent what is visible in God [to horaton tõu theõu]. I do not venerate any matter, but I venerate the creator of a matter, who became the matter for my sake, who assumed life in the flesh, and who through the matter accomplished my salvation”John of Damascus, Or. I

Anathema to those who say that another than Christ our Lord has delivered us from idols.

Whatever was he referring to, here? Were folks teaching that there was a different saviour than Jesus?

(8) If anyone ventures to represent the divine image (χαρακτήρ) of the Word after the Incarnation with material colours, let him be anathema!

Huh? How does this square with all the icons of The Pantocrator, etc?
