Famed theologian Francis Schaeffer once quipped:

I am afraid that as evangelicals, we think that a work of art only has value if we reduce it to a tract.

As we study the 2nd Commandment this week, what about art work? Specifically, should we display artwork that depicts God the Father, Jesus the Son, or the Holy Spirit or other Christian symbols? Should we have crosses in our sanctuaries?

For a great, short overview of this before our sermon, please see article by Dr. R.C. Sproul:
