CHRISTIAN THEOLOGY 101: Graven Images and Idolatry
Kanino na ba inutos ang Ark, Cherubim at ginto ahas? Sa Israel ba o sa mga Kristiano? Ito ba ay maikukumpara para I justify ang maling pagsamba na di naman inutos ng Diyos? Ano ang significance nito sa kasaysayan ng Israel at ito ba ay nag eexist pa ngayon? (READ FIRST BEFORE POSTING COMMENT):
Maliwanag ang sinasabi ng ikalawang utos na “WAG KANG GAGAWA NG ANUMANG INANYUHAN NA WANGIS NG TAO O HAYOP SA LANGIT O SA LUPA MAN pagka’t ang DIYOS AY “ESPIRITU” at katotohanan sila na sumasamba sa Diyos ay DAPAT sumamba sa “ESPIRITU” at katotohanan... (–JOHN 4:24) Laging dinadahilan ng mga iba ang Ark, Cherubim at ang Ahas?
UNA: Ang mga bagay na ito ay inutos sa ISRAEL hindi sa mga Kristiano o kanino pa man… ayon sa kasaysayan ng Israel…
PANGALAWA: Ang significance nito sa Israel na ibang iba sa mga rebulto o imaheng hindi naman inutos ng Diyos! Hindi dinalanginan ng Israel ang mga ito liban sa ahas kung saan napahamak ang marami at ito ay pinasira ni Moses… ang Ark, Cherubim at Ahas ay hindi na nag eexist ngayon sa Israel tulad ng dati (2 KINGS 18:4)
PANGATLO: Kung ginagaya ito ng ibang religious sectors at ganito ang pagrarason nila MAG PISTA NA RIN KAYA SILA NG TINAPAY NA WALANG LIBADURA AT PAMPASKUWA at gayahin ang mga bagay ng Israel noon? SUBALIT TAYO AY HENTIL AT
MGA KRISTIANO naligtas sa biyaya ng Diyos sa pamamagitan ni Kristo Hesus…
PANG-APAT: IBA ANG GRAVENN IMAGES SA MGA BAGAY NA INUTOS NG DIYOS SA ISRAEL na pinabanal ng Diyos at sa mga bagay na HINDI NAMAN INUTOS NG DIYOS bagkus utos lang ng simbahaban, tao at mga maling paniniwala o tradisyon…
Ginagawa pang dahilan ng iba si RIZAL? Tandaan nating ang DIYOS ay hindi taong tulad natin na kailangan Niya ng rebulto para maalala natin Siya ang tunay na pananampalataya nasa mga bagay na ESPIRITUAL hindi sa mga bagay na nakikita ng mata… at ang tunay na sumampalataya kay Kristo ay hindi nakakalimot at nasa puso Niya ito kailanman… [DAHIL HINDI BINIBIGAY NG DIYOS ANG KANYANG PURI SA MGA BAGAY NA GAWA NG MAKASALANANG TAO NA HINDI NAMAN INUTOS NG DIYOS!]
PANG-LIMA: Sinumpa ng Diyos ang mga sumasamba sa mga rebulto sa ano pa mang kaparaanan hanggang sa ikaapat na salinlahi at dahilan ng maraming pagkakasala maging sa panahong ito… DAHIL ANG TUNAY NA PAPURI, DALANGIN, PAGLILINGKOD AT PAGSAMBA AY SA DIYOS LAMANG HINDI SA TAO O BAGAY!!! Kaya napakahalaga rin ng mga tanong na ito NA MAY INUTOS BA? WAG TAYONG HIHIGIT SA NASUSULAT! Sabi ni Pablo…
ITO ANG LAGING INIIWASAN NA TANONG AT DI NASASAGOT NG IBA NG DIRETSO kundi puro opinion lang nila KUNG SAAN VERSE MAKIKITA NA GAWAN MO SIYA NG REBULTO O IMAHEN NIYA TSAKA MO YUKURAN O DALANGINAN ITO?! MALIWANAG WALA NI ISA! MAGDADAHILAN PA NG LIHIS AT MGA OFF CONTEXT VERSES NA DI NILA NAUUNAWAAN…

Rapid growth of Protestant and Evangelicals worldwide...
From 500 Million to 800 Million up to 1 Billion Protestants Worldwide. (Growth especially in Russia, China, Latin America and Africa.)
There are about 800 million Protestants worldwide, among approximately 2.2 billion Christians. These include 300 million in Sub-Saharan Africa, 260 million in the Americas, 140 million in Asia-Pacific region, 100 million in Europe and 2 million in Middle East-North Africa. Protestants account for nearly forty percent of Christians worldwide and more than one tenth of the total human population. Various estimates put the percentage of Protestants in relation to the total number of world's Christians at 33%, 36%, 36.7%,and 40%, while in relation to the world's population at 11.6% and 13%.
In European countries which were most profoundly influenced by the Reformation, Protestantism still remains the most practiced religion. These include the Nordic countries and the United Kingdom. In other historical Protestant strongholds such as Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Latvia, Estonia and Hungary, it remains one of the most popular religions. Although Czech Republic was the site of one of the most significant pre-reformation movements, there are only few Protestant adherents;mainly due to historical reasons like persecution of Protestants by the Catholic Habsburgs, restrictions during the Communist rule, and also the ongoing secularization. Over the last several decades, religious practice has been declining as secularization has increased. According to a 2012 study about Religiosity in the European Union in 2012 by Eurobarometer, Protestants made up 12% of the EU population. According to Pew Research Center, Protestants constituted nearly one fifth (or 17.8%) of the continent's Christian population in 2010. Clarke and Beyer estimate that Protestants constituted 15% of all Europeans in 2009, while Noll claims that less than 12% of them lived in Europe in 2010.
Changes in worldwide Protestantism over the last century have been significant. Since 1900, Protestantism has spread rapidly in Africa, Asia, Oceania and Latin America.That caused Protestantism to be called a primarily non-Western religion. Much of the growth has occurred after World War II, when decolonization of Africa and abolition of various restrictions against Protestants in Latin American countries occurred. According to one source, Protestants constituted respectively 2.5%, 2%, 0.5% of Latin Americans, Africans and Asians. In 2000, percentage of Protestants on mentioned continents was 17%, more than 27% and 5.5%, respectively.According to Mark A. Noll, 79% of Anglicans lived in the United Kingdom in 1910, while most of the remainder was found in the United States and across the British Commonwealth. By 2010, 59% of Anglicans were found in Africa. In 2010, more Protestants lived in India than in the United Kingdom or Germany, while Protestants in Brazil accounted for as many people as Protestants in the United Kingdom and Germany combined. Almost as many lived in each of Nigeria and China as in all of Europe. China is home to world's largest Protestant minority.
Protestantism is growing in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Oceania, while remaining stable or declining in Anglo America and Europe, with some exceptions such as France, where it was eradicated after the abolition of the Edict of Nantes by the Edict of Fontainebleau and the following persecution of Huguenots, but now is claimed to be stable in number or even growing slightly According to some, Russia is another country to see a Protestant revival.
In 2010, the largest Protestant denominational families were historically Pentecostal denominations (10.8%), Anglican (10.6%), Lutheran (9.7%), Baptist (9%), United and uniting churches (unions of different denominations) (7.2%), Presbyterian or Reformed (7%), Methodist (3.4%), Adventist (2.7%), Congregationalist (0.5%), Brethren (0.5%), The Salvation Army (0.3%) and Moravian (0.1%). Other denominations accounted for 38.2% of Protestants.
United States is home to approximately 20% of Protestants. According to a 2012 study, Protestant share of U.S. population dropped to 48%, thus ending its status as religion of the majority for the first time. The decline is attributed mainly to the dropping membership of the Mainline Protestant churches, while Evangelical Protestant and Black churches are stable or continue to grow.
By 2050, Protestantism is projected to rise to a proportion of around half of the world's total Christian population. According to other experts such as Hans J. Hillerbrand, Protestants will be as numerous as Catholics.
