The Bible is adamant that we not make idols (images or representations of God). The holiness of God is what’s behind the Bible’s strong prohibition against making idols (Exodus 20:4; Leviticus 26:1; Deuteronomy 27:15; Psalm 97:7). God is so completely other than (i.e., “holy”) the creation that nothing within it can contain Him. Trying to fit God into a statue would be like trying to be the Pacific Ocean in a twelve-ounce water bottle. The bottle cannot even come close to containing all the water of the Pacific!
